Heading Home

We have started our journey home.  And while the road trip fun is still in full effect, it just isn't the same.  It will be nice to be home and it will be even nicer to see Tim, but going home just isn't quite as adventurous.

And it has been an adventure.  It has been harder than I imagined, more fun than I imagined.  It has been so fun in fact that for a few minutes I considered taking the kids out of school and living in a camper for a year.  The only real sticking point would be air conditioning and a tutor for math of course. 

It feels so freeing and romantic to be on the open road, yes even with four fighting kids and no air conditioning.  It's like a Midwestern mom's version of Jack Kerouac's On the Road.  

Love this song from Zac Brown Band--Free. Sums up part of how I'm feeling right now. 

No we don't have a lot of money No we don't have a lot of money
All we need is love, we're Free as we'll ever be
Just as free Free as we'll ever be
So we live in our old van Travel all across this land Me and you


But instead, we are heading home to the real world.  The camper dream will be my plan B for now. 

I have so many stories to tell and I will share soon. I have one more mini adventure to get through today--a hotel/motel alone with four kids.

Then the adventure will continue at home I'm sure.

I so want to do this with some of my pictures from the trip.  This might be a good rainy day craft project.
