Three Big Helpers

I have been running around like crazy with my head in a deep fog, thinking about all the details involved in getting a family of six ready to go on a road trip.  But the fog is lifting -- these girls are the best helpers!   This is now one less thing on my to-do-before-we-go list.   The bags are packed and I have a whole day (Thursday) to... shop for fabric, fix supper, and go to church.  Oh yes, and clean the house, since the house will be having company while we are gone.  Honestly, I thank the Lord for easy last-minute meals like Red Baron pizza plus a green salad, and this week I am especially thanking the Lord for Amy (Booklover), who has been an extra big help to me. Emily needed a couple of dresses, so Amy and I whipped them up assembly line style, with me pinning and Amy doing most of the sewing.  I'll show off her work later, in my end of the month post.   In the meantime, if you live anywhere between here and Missouri, we'll wave as we pass you on the highway.  So sorry we can't stop. We girls would LOVE to. The driver, however, is a time-Nazi, and on this trip I can't really blame him.  We have a lot of country to cover and not much time to do it.  I think that while we are tooling along all that endless New Mexico or West Texas or Oklahoma or Kansas terrain (there's not much to see between here and there) I will write a rough draft for an entry on the secrets of hassle-free road traveling... if I discover any.    See you when we get home!

For the goodman is not at home, he is gone a long journey:
He hath taken a bag of money with him, and will come home at the day appointed.
Proverbs 7:19,20


  1. Have a great trip.

    Looking forward to reading about it when you get back.

    God Bless you.

  2. I hope you are having/had a fun trip! I was thinking of you and thought I'd read your blog since I can't seem to get time to right you one of my typical novel-length emails....

    Been craving chocolate chip cookies, and that always makes me think of you.


  3. i can't believe i wrote "right" instead of "write"

    please forgive me!

  4. Not much pleases a mommas heart like seeing her offspring merrily working! Your girls are so sweet.

    I hope your stay in MO was great! Were there lots of ticks? I know they've had a lot of rain like us and the ticks here are horrendous!

    I can't wait to read about it and I hope there will be photos too :-)!

    Blessings, Julie

  5. Are you home yet? :-) I hope you had a good trip!

    I have to say, the snake in your picture up at the top worries me. Do you see many snakes there? I am definitely anti-snake. LoL

  6. WOW, you was in Missouri. Sorry we missed you. We live in the far south of Missouri, almost at the state line.

    We canoed on the North Fork River. Everyone calls that bridge, Steel Bridge but I think it is actually called Hebron. That spot that looks shallow is a huge rock that those people were standing on. But it was far enough away that there wasn't a problem for them to jump down on them. It was really deep this way from them. I had to go back and look at the picture again to see what you were talking about. lol
