So, tomorrow I’m finally gonna put my new kicks to work because we are headed out to Montana for a little over a week.
I hope that the state is ready for us! And more than that, I hope that the passengers on our flights are ready for our kids. Oh my words…do you remember my last flight with my 5 year old and 15 month old lap child?! If not, go HERE for a refresher…let me just say that I don’t know if you’re ever really prepared for travel with children no matter how well prepared you think that you may be. I’m just asking the Lord that our travel be on time and uneventful….I’m under no illusion that my kids would actually sleep or sit perfectly quietly, and there are certainly other miracles I’d rather the Lord attend to than that!
I’m hoping to post a few times while I’m gone, but in case you don’t hear from me every day, just know that it’s because I’m trekking around out west! I’m so excited I can’t even tell you! If I was really awesome I’d have scheduled some guest bloggers while I was gone I suppose, but I didn’t…only occasional awesomeness can be expected from here I guess.
I’ll do my best to keep you posted on our trip in all of it’s snow-capped mountainous glory at least some though. I’m pretty excited to escape this unbelievable heat wave that’s been sweeping through the South lately too…50’s, 60’s, and 70’s here I come! Can I tell you how pumped I am that I don’t even need to pack shorts…and how much more excited I am because that means that I have a week hiatus in the middle of summer from shaving my legs! Oh yeah…I’m getting granola on you all. Don’t worry, I won’t let the pits get out of control though…that’s just nasty.
Anywho, I’ve got to finish packing…there are suitcases and clothes spread all over my room! I’m determined to pack all 4 of us (and our gear) into just 3 suitcases since each additional one is $50 each way…um no thanks. Do you know how much chalk paint I could buy with that money?!
Happy trails friends!
