Like throwing in the ugly flip-flops and then needing them for a bruised foot.
And like throwing our sleeping bags in the car and then needing one for Songbird for camp. No problem. I NEVER pack sleeping bags for a road trip.
So I just wanted to take a minute to acknowledge and be thankful for all the things that have gone right.
The storms we drove between instead of through.
The lower gas prices.
The girls eating roadside picnics with grace.
The swimming pools that have made up for Mouses broken arm/no swimming last year.
The little stops with playmates to keep it fun for an 8 year old.
The unexpected opportunity for Songbird to go to camp.
Another unexpected delay in when Songbird needs to return to Ohio which means we will be able to spend time with my mom even with the added days in Texas due to camp.
Timing being right to meet Internet friends.
All 11 of us being able to make it to the lake house.
It's been great to have such an easy trip so far. I'm used to living a "roll with the punches" life.
So here's hoping the blessings hold out for the last half of our epic girls trip!
