With only a few short detours, we have succssfully made it to the hotel here in Kilmarnock. One would think that driving 16 hours with 6 teenagers might be their idea of hell. I have to say, it was one of the most fun drives I have had in a long time! We played lots of "car games", multiple rounds of "would you rather" and spent the better part of two hours singing at the top of our lungs to anyone who would listen - even getting the trucker beside us to pull the horn!
The last stretch into Kilmarnock offered some fantastic lightening and some very heavy rains. That cleared as we approached the hotel and were able to unload without getting soaked. Most have hit the pillows as we have a long day planned for tomorrow and of course we lose an hour of sleep as the clocks spring forward tonight.
Thank you for your letter Tricia & Andy.
Tomorrow is a day full of promise and we look forward to re-connecting with old friends as we celebrate new beginnings. Let's see what God has in store for us!
