We were headed out of town around 1 p.m. this afternoon. All of the family was up until past midnight, and almost half were up until 2:30 a.m. or a little later! Everyone pitched in again this morning, from running errands, to finishing touches on the bus, to trying to get personal things packed, to leaving all the Titus2 shipping things in order for G&G (Grandma and Grandad), and more.
I think this trip is a little unusual in the fact that we will be stopping at home overnight next Wednesday, packing up more books, and then heading to the Rogers, Arkansas conference Thursday. It’s a relief to know if we’ve forgotten something on this month long trip, we can grab it a week into it!
Nathan, Melanie, and Abby had us over for dinner last night, a tradition they’ve been doing to help us out so we don’t have to fix dinner the night before leaving. Melanie must have worked a long time on dinner–it was simply delicious (thanks, Melanie!). We had a nice time in God’s Word after that.
We look forward to seeing some of you in Denver (Aurora) tomorrow night and Saturday.
