Another uneventful day and now we are more than halfway there. YES!
With the help of plenty of animal crackers, a variety of dried fruits, squirt guns and Color Wonder sheets along with a few HFCS-laced bribes--not to mention temps in the low 80's (thank the Good Lord!)--we arrived in IL safe and sound and...happy! Another small miracle.
Tomorrow there will be no driving. We will be playing with Heidi & Josh's kids and visiting all day. We'll pick up our A/C free cross-country adventure bright and early on Monday.
(unless we decide to quit here and get a job in Chi-town. it is very tempting...)
But before we sign off tonight, we must share the quote of the day: we were driving past a cemetery and L. asked me if there were "real people" buried there.
"Well, yes, after they die," I answered.
She thought for a moment. "Mommy, will they become saints....or zombies?"
