Anyway...I don't have the time at the moment to write all about how we packed a 20-foot truck, a minivan, and Big Red to drive 1,300 miles across the country with five children in tow. There are things that we did that really worked. And things that didn't. There are thoughts about the endurance required in a move of this type and thoughts about leaving behind a group of loving friends. And, as can be expected, the crazy stories of life with a handful of littles abound.
In place of writing I'll include some photos and (Lord willing) sometime
Our first day driving.
Logging in driving hours while everyone was asleep.
Final day - driving through Central Virginia.
First family hike. This trail is only 15 minutes from our house. Amazing!
And for those who are particularly brave, here is a video from the last hour of the drive.
