And, there are more doctors visits now that we've reached an age where all the kids need to see the dentist and eye doctor, not to mention the random doctor's visits Scotty and I need. Thankfully, the kids are champs on roadtrips and have 2 10-hour trips and 2 5-hour trips under their belts. The last 9 hour trip will be Monday! We've been through 8 states so far!
Summer highlights for Miser kids:
ice water- hands down, this has been the most exciting thing. Ice in everyone's dispensers! Free ice waters in restaurants! ("You mean, they just give you as much as you want??) Crunch crunch all day long.
Swimming! Pools, beaches, lakes, even one Great Lake
Bikes- Natty learned to ride a bike in about 2 hours.
New friends- oh, so many sweet kids in all our journeys.
Treats! We've relaxed our sweets rules a bit for this trip.
Grandparents- don't we wish we had more time together?
Sandwiches- the cheese variety! the soft, sliced bread! PICKLES!
Summer highlights for Miser adults:
Time to work out
Seeing old friends
Reconnecting with so many precious, faithful supporters- we feel so blessed and cared for.
Shopping! (A blessing and a curse. See above.)
So, less than 2 weeks to go before we board a plane Bolivia-bound. We will be so happy to be back in our home, not living out of suitcases. But, we are incredibly grateful for these amazing experiences in the homeland.
