We realized recently how lucky we are that no one in our family gets carsick. Several of our trips are 7-8 hours in the car, one day there, and another day traveling back. The girls do remarkably well. They color, nap, play on their play computers (seriously, this occupies HOURS in the car-best investment ever), and eat lots of snacks.

|These two will share a lot of adventures over the next several years.|
Every trip we take usually involves meetings. Occasionally one of our staff volunteers to hang out with the girls so I can participate. Often I miss out on parts of the meetings, or sometimes, the girls can hang out right where we are meeting.
|The girls are getting old enough to self-entertain, |
thanks to lots of coloring books and an Ipad full of Doc McStuffins episodes.
Though the travel can be tiring, we are blessed with great little travelers.
This job would be nearly impossible without their flexibility and good natures.
