Off Like A Herd of Turtles

The title of this post is one of my favorite sayings!!

I think it very accurately describes my large family when trying to get out the door for a major event or vacation.

I ALWAYS say it as were pulling out of the driveway. It probably annoys my teenagers but trust me, they'll say it too some day. :)

So we are off the Washington DC in a few hours. Super Shuttle is picking us up at 10:00 and because we are 7 we get the whole van to ourselves with no stops. Kinda like a limo only NOT. Instead of a stretch hummer we get a blue van with obnoxious yellow writing. Hey! The price was great and we still get door to door service.

Everyone is healthy at this hour. Will you pray for continued good health and safety for us?

This is the first time all 7 of us have travelled on an airplane. Um, I'm thinkin' you should pray for that too. :)

Thank you, dear friends.

I'll be checking in on occasion if our room has free Internet service.

I never heard that saying before but now it will be part of our legendary family vocabulary.
So much more fun than "Why can't we EVER leave when I planned to?"
I'm praying right now too for a safe and memorable trip.
Bet you don't all get window seats.
Hope the weather is good- be glad you're not heading to the midwest- and that this is a FABULOUS vacation!
(Remember- if you see my sister say hello!)
