Actually, It is hard to argue with someone who looks so happy…

I have my creative husband to thank for this caption. This description fits him well! I still tease him that he cannot glare to save his life. We started packing our house today, preparing for the second out of three moves this year. We are still looking for a house to rent in CT, South Africa. Apparently the competition is fierce! The houses come on the market and within a week, they are taken by the best applicant.

Monday, at about 3 a.m., we leave for our roadtrip to the Midwest. My plan: we look out the window for an hour, listen to audiobooks for an hour, sing songs and play games for an hour, watch a movie for an hour, take a nap for an hour, stop and rest, and then do it all over again. We have about 17 hours of listening material and the kids are going to make Travel Journals along the way. So my biggest prayer request is that the hours will pass quickly and everyone will remain in good spirits. Especially mom and dad…

We look forward to spending the 4th of July with friends in Colorado, a huge Grim family reunion in Estes Park, special time with our church family in Missouri, an overnight with our fellow South Africans in Kansas City, driving to Mt. Rushmore, two nights with another special friend in Wyoming, then eventually making our way back to Washington.

Some highlights of the last couple months…
