Home Again, Home Again, Jiggety Jig!


We arrived Wednesday night after

Nearly 6,000 miles; 3 and a half weeks.

We visited family in New Mexico, Louisiana, Texas and Virginia.  (Thanks, Brian /Lois; Jordan/Janna; Jenni/Brent; Bill/Donna; South family in Texas)

We made connections with people we knew whenever we went to church….

Long days in the car were made more interesting thanks to:

SPOTIFY (Texas music in Texas, country music in Alabama, Civil War Songs in S Carolina - anyway, you get the picture)
PODCASTS (thanks, Jordan, for some of the recommended listening ones)
KINDLE (thankfully, Allen didn't read - as he was driving - but I got a few books read)
CROSSWORD PUZZLE books
INTERNET to do lots of searching on things to see and do while we were in each city. …(who knew about the BIG TEXAN CAFE where the price is the size of the steak - 72 ounces for 72 dollars! )

When we walked in the door of our home at 10:30 last night, I was overwhelmed with gratitude for the marvelous country we live in; the good people we met and already knew; safe travels; and a beautiful home to come home to.

Now, to unpack, regroup, put away, get organized, and give thanks to Heavenly Father for such a grand adventure!
