Very excited for a bunch of reasons. I’ve loved road trips as long as I can remember. Going new places, seeing new things. Taking the kids on such an adventure, all the better.
No dishes to speak of? GOOD.
Change up of schedule? GOOD.
Living out of a suitcase and van for a few days? GOOD.
Change up of surroundings and scenery? GOOD.
Spend time with friends we haven’t seen in a while? GOOD.
Kids get to hang out with new kids, similar ages? GOOD.
Going to a new park? GOOD.
Spending long stretches of time with the kids, drenched in ordinary activities? GOOD.
Spending long stretches of time without screens on? GOOD.
Let the soul be refilled. I’m ready.
