We were on the road from November 20th to December 30th. During that time our car went through the states of Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, Washington, DC, Indiana, Iowa and Kansas. Our car hit the 200,000 mile mark and only broke down once. Here are a few of the highlights.
Our first stop was in Illinois where we spent the weekend with Teresa’s sister and her family. While they were there, we saw Seth play basketball. Here are the rest cheering him on.
Next stop was Florida where we spent Thanksgiving with Noel’s family.
On that Friday, we gathered with Aunts, Uncles and Cousins that we had not seen in 5 years. We gathered around a bonfire enjoying smores, soup, and other goodies.
Our third stop was in Tennessee where we spent a week with Nana and Papaw. One night Nana and Papaw took us to see the Rockettes.
After Christmas, my sister and her family joined us so we could celebrate together. This was our first time together since before we left for Afghanistan. Our last night in Iowa, we were able to share about our life in Afghanistan with my home church.
