“Let me get this straight,” N said. “We’re taking the car just because the truck doesn’t have AC?”
“Yes,” Marnell said.
“But the truck has more room!”
That exchange is a mere sample of some of the conversations we’ve had in the last number of hours and days preparing for and en route to spend time with my family in Ironwood, MI. We did explain in time that the car also gets much better gas mileage.
The day before we left, our friend Velinda took the boys clothes shopping, so they got to pack their bags with almost all new clothes. Most of them are matching. So pardon me for sharing more cute pictures than cute words…
But I will give an audiobook suggestion for boys for road trips: Hatchet, by Gary Paulsen. I wasn’t sure that I could capture their interest. It’s not a Christian book, but it’s a riveting story of survival in the Canadian northwest. It’s about four hours. Your library very likely has a copy, and our copy was narrated by a talented reader.
“Turn the radio back on!” D announced about every time we jumped back into the car.
And by radio, he meant Hatchet.
We aren’t quite done yet with Crispin and the Cross of Lead. It’s a little longer and a little harder to stay in touch. But I’m withholding my opinion until we’re done.
Anyway, enjoy the photos. And have a good weekend!
