Looking out my window… lots of sunshine and a cooler start to the day which is quite helpful when packing and prepping the car for a VERY long trip.
I am thinking… after a year of ‘not sure when, hopefully soon’, leaving this week feels almost unreal. It’s strange to look ahead at what the temps will be like at our different stopping points and see an actual forecast instead of just the average temps for that time of year.
I am thankful… that God sent the bulk of the rain around us yesterday allowing us to do most of the packing. Instead of a 60% chance of rain most of the day we only had a short sprinkle here.
One of my favorite things… smiling, happy kids.
I am creating… I accomplished my goal of finishing the outline of the cross stitch I am working on before this final trip to Alaska. Now to begin filling in the lines.
I am hoping… we can fit everything into the car and trailer without much trouble. Not sure we’ll be able to use the trailer for sleeping (thankfully the tent is plenty big for us all), but if we can at least have access to the stove without having to unpack a lot of things I’ll be happy.
I am hearing… 12:30 – kids chattering as they eat lunch, Kara blowing her nose (Poor girl has been hit hard by some type of allergy here this week. Hoping it clears up quickly as we travel north.)
