Aaaaaaaaaaaand we're OFF!!!!

Yesterday was the first leg of my cRaZy MaMa SuMmEr Road Tour. We started off a little late, because the kids wanted to wait until Nathan got out of class to say goodbye to him. That would have been just fine without the 3 MILLION other things that happened to delay us also :o). That is just how it goes sometimes, right? The kids were extremely amped about the trip, so it made for a lively ride to say the least.

Nathan had a breakthrough idea on how we can pay for MaryEveyln's leg brace in 2 weeks (long story) and called me to tell me about it. I was so excited that I flew right past my exit. Turns out, that exit is COMPLETELY different when you come at it from the other way, so it took me a couple of tries to get back on the road I was supposed to be on.

FINALLY, we made it.

We greeted everyone. Let the kids unwind in the house for a few minutes. Went outside to unload the car and, before I could pull the first suitcase out of the truck, Cooper and Ella had been stung by several wasps! They are fine now,but ended up with a total of 3 stings (2 on Ella and 1 on Cooper).

The really sweet part of this story is that my 5 yr old boy, Cooper, saw the wasps and ran. Then he went back for his little sister and got stung also. I wish that NEITHER of them Had gotten stung at all, but knowing that he went back to protect his sister, somehow makes the other not-so-fun parts of my day seem much better.

Stay tuned for updates from the road. It is ALWAYS an adventure!
