First things first – a very special happy birthday to Mama
Jennie!! We are so glad that Dad was able to give his birthday wishes in person
yesterday. We would have loved to come, but after 18 hours (!!) in the car on
Thursday, we simply couldn’t bring ourselves to get in the car again. We will
have to have a belated celebration in August when we are back in NC.
As I mentioned above, we had a very long drive to get to
Sophia and Audrey’s new house in NC on Thursday. We had basically every
possible non-serious delay en route – traffic, construction, torrential rain,
etc. Although Scout did find a very big stick to chew on during one of our brief stops.
It is hard to explain how relieved we were to finally get here! We have
been making the most of our time with our cousins the last couple of days.
is really hot, so we made a quick trip to the store for hot-weather provisions –
a pool, a sprinkler, and popsicles!
In the mornings, we’ve taken advantage of the (slightly)
cooler weather to plays some girls on boy soccer. It’s a pretty good match-up!
We have also enjoyed exploring Sophia and Audrey’s new home
and playing in their awesome new house / yard. Scout is in heaven with a large
lawn to explore at her leisure!
Tomorrow we are back on the road to complete our journey to
FL. Thankfully it should be a shorter day than Thursday!
Welcome to Caden and Finn who are staying in our house this
week while they visit friends. We are so sad to miss seeing them, but we love
knowing that they are taking good care of our house! (I am also excited to see
what neat things Caden may create with my legos.)
