Today marks the end of the first day of our family vacation to Colorado. We are currently in Kearney, Nebraska at a hotel. My husband and two of our kiddos are downstairs in the pool, I am upstairs in our room with our other two kids, watching a baseball game and just relaxing. What a day it has been! We hit the road at 6:30 this morning, which was a half hour later than we had hoped, but we didn't mind. We drove straight through to Kearney with the exception of a 45 minute lunch break at a rest stop (we packed sandwich makings and other yummy food for lunch) and a couple of quick bathroom breaks/driver switches. Monte let me drive for a majority of the trip, which I LOVED! I'm kind of a nerd like that, but I truly do enjoy driving quite a bit! Now I'm just waiting for the kiddos to get that pent up energy out of their system so we can go to sleep and enjoy another long day in the car tomorrow! We made 10 hours of our trip today and have about another six to go tomorrow. Not too bad!
I really don't have anything to write about at this point - the trip has been going really well and the kids have been AMAZING at travelling! I was really surprised how well it went (as Colin has a really hard time on the six hour road trip to see my brother and his family in North Dakota!). Now I'm just ready for whatever the next week holds for me. My true prayer is that God will make Himself far more evident in my life - that I will not be able to go through a single moment without knowing the awesomeness that He is and that He has created.
That, and to kick the phrases "buttox region" and "you little wretch" from my boys' vocabularies! Oh sheesh :)
