If you’ve read my blog for any length of time, you might have picked up on the fact that sometimes I
complain mention that we used to travel A LOT, but in the last 6 or 7 years, I can’t get past the border states of Missouri. But tonight, yes, at 1 a.m., I am taking a little break from packing my suitcases because we are TRAVELING this week!!!! And beyond just the usual places we go!
We are going to take 3 Juniors & Seniors from our Christian school on a “College Trip” to visit 2 Christian colleges and have some fun along the way. The fact that we get to take OUR KIDS along too is a bonus!! With 6 kids in tow, I think I’ll feel a little Duggar-like; however, they are all good kids and I foresee having a great time together!
Where are we going? Well, first, we’ll be heading to MY HOME: Knoxville, Tennessee. My parents’ church (the one I grew up in) started a Christian college and seminary in 1992 … the same year I graduated (!!) from another Bible college. As an added bonus, we’ll get to see my family briefly.
Then on Wednesday, we’ll head further South into FLORIDA – honestly, a state I never thought I’d ever find my way back to. We’ll be in Pensacola for 2 days! How convenient to have a student interested in visiting a college in such a vacationy place! 🙂
We’ll be traveling many, many miles in our school van – about 2,000 – so please say a prayer for our safety on the roads, for health, and with 6 kids in tow, for me to have STRENGTH and patience!! 🙂
