Spring Break Road Trip!

Last week was Spring break for Emma's school, and also New Tribes Bible Institute. What better time to take off for a road trip?
We had a wonderful week, full of adventure. I have decided to take all week to post about our time. I did this for three reasons:
1. I have too many pictures to share in just one post.
2. I haven't had much to post about lately so this is fodder for my blog. he he
3. Everybody loves a good "to be continued" don't they? :)
To start our trip we did the unthinkable. We pulled Emma out of school a day early. I know, I know, we are one of those parents. When I realized that our whole carpool was not going to go, and heard Emma mention something about a "movie day", I decided I would rather her waste her hours of non-learning in a van with her family, not in a classroom watching a movie. That is a whole other topic of discussion for another time. Movies at school? Really? Okay, really. We will discuss at another time.
So, you may be thinking that because we had pulled Emma out a day early, we got an early jump on our trip. Sadly, this was not the case. We left after she would have already been out. That happens a lot in our family when planning big trips. Noon becomes two, then three...
After a good ride at night, and a not so nice stop at a hotel, we were on the road again!(sung in your best Willie Nelson voice).
I was really actually surprised at how quick our trip went. We made it to North Carolina in record time! Well, record time with three little girls in a van. :)
I'll post more tomorrow. Here are some pictures on the road...
Not too packed. It was a comfortable ride.

The handsome driver I hired. Pretty cute, right?

There is something very un-nerving about driving into a mountain.

I wish I could remember where this was. I thought it was beautiful.

Our destination!
