Thanks for the prayers! Our truck was fixed by Tuesday evening. We had a smooth day of packing and getting ready yesterday. I had more energy than I have had in weeks, and my back held out nicely. We got off on time, had an uneventful 13 1/2 hours of driving all night long (the boys were excellent!), and have arrived at our destination to be greeted by bright sunshine. The three of us adults managed naps while my cousin watched the boys (we only slept about and hour or two each), and vacation has officially begun!
I'll post more at the beginning of next week. Have a terrific weekend!
