Traveling Mercies

Thing 1 and Thing 2

The first thing I noticed when we got to my parents’ new home in South Carolina was the smell of the pines. The boys spent time outside there almost every day these last two weeks–the “cold” days there were high 40s, low 50s. It was truly good to celebrate Christmas and New Year’s with beloved and loving family. I thought I’d miss “our” beach, but the woods made a fine substitute.

(Of course, as I watch the sun rise over the water and type back at home, I’m grateful for the living room ocean view.)

One cause for prayer before traveling to see family is traveling logistics. How will the kids do on the plane? In the car on the way to the airport? Will they skip naps due to travel, and will this mean utter mayhem later?

But on the way home yesterday, on the plane, this happened:

Great logistics, great trip. I’m thankful for my family, and so glad we K-Js got to be with them these last two weeks.

    Post was appropriate – we just arrived in China! Isaac was a champ on the 11.5 hour flight. No screaming, although I was up playing with him from 3:30 to 5 am this morning.

    Miss you guys!

      Miss you, too! So glad to hear it went well. Wow–11.5 hours for the little guy, and he did that well? Amazing.

What do you think?
