Hours In the Car

Every time we make a trip to Tennessee, or Indiana, or Wisconsin, it takes hours and hours of driving time of course. Having four small children in the car that long can be maddening! We have been very blessed to have children that travel pretty well. We also have invested in some great tools of the "traveling with children trade", a portable DVD player with two screens, V-smile Pockets for the girls, snacks galore, and each child's own personal bag of toys, coloring books, and crayons. Occasionally, even these sure fire tools don't work and someone has a meltdown. Usually this has to do with lack of sleep and/or having to go potty. Now that the kids are getting a little older, we do manage to make it two hours or more in between potty breaks. Jeremy and I have both been saying for a few years that we need to write a traveling book for parents. A book that list all the fast food places with playlands on a certain interstate, rate them by cleanliness, and list what exit they are off of and whether the playland is indoor or outdoor. A book like this would make traveling so much easier!! God has always kept us safe on the highway with all the traveling we do, and for that I give Him all the praise! It's a jungle out there! Christmas pics to come soon. Love you all, and thank you to God Almighty who has for now blessed us with one more!
