We Survived!


We have covered thousands of miles in the last 2 weeks. In addition to moving from Orlando to Carbondale, we also visited Champaign, Dekalb, Sterling, Chicago, and Rockford in Illinois. We have been on the move. Traveling can be excited but it also get very tiring to be on the road and living out of a suitcase. We moved 2 weeks ago but we are only now unpacking. Some of the highlights included
Playing at the Discover Center Museum

  • Watching Cynthia's brother graduate from NIU
  • Requests for snacks every time we got in the car
  • Cynthia's emergency shoe shopping because all she had to wear was sandals
  • Caleb meeting all three of his Great-Grandparents
  • Spending time with Bob's aunt, uncle and cousin
  • Catching up with several friends from college
  • Lydia's new habit of taking our shoes (and socks) off in the car
  • Playing hide and seek while strapped in our seats
  • Visiting the Discovery Center Museum in Rockford IL

  • Naps that began 10 minutes before reaching our destination after a 2 hour car ride
  • Discovering it was time to get bigger diapers for Caleb after after a blowout 2 hours from home at the end of the trip.
