we just got back from our big road trip. details on the actual vacation later, but right now we’re very thankful for very, very good travels. we just did approximately 1039 miles in roughly 16 hours and 41 minutes. Bomoseen VT to Chattanooga TN. the kids did amazingly well, thanks mostly to a concoction of prayer, drugs and videos. we especially had a steady stream of benadryl (as recommended by our pediatrician) and kids videos (as recommended by just about every traveling parent) and we ate up the miles in “pre-kid” time. so thanks to everyone for your prayers for safety and speed. now to get back to “normal” life. thankfully we have 2 full days before the work week.
