Yep, that's right! I'm in Texas with Steven. Thursday afternoon Steven e-mailed me that he had a load going through Louisville to a town just south of his parents' home in Texas. "Would love to take you with me" he wrote. As late as Friday afternoon, I still didn't know if I could throw it together. After coercing my parents to help me with the kids, hiring a sitter for the evening they are NOT available, begging my brother to pick up the kids from school one day, running to the grocery to stock up on EVERYTHING, paying all the necessary bills, running 3 loads of laundry, and de-briefing the teenagers, I managed to hit the road with Steven early Saturday morning. We drove all day Saturday, through Kentucky, Tennesee, Arkansas (we thought of you, Jay!), and east Texas to arrive just south of Waco, Texas late Saturday night. It has been quite an experience seeing some of Texas for the first time, AND meeting Steven's parents! We have only been here a day, but I have had a blast. I will write more when I get back, probably on Wednesday. Here are some pictures:
Steven and I on the road!
My first few minutes in Texas, on the Arkansas/Texas state line, in Texarkana!
Steven's parents have a palm tree growing in their back yard!
Cactus! I finally saw a real Texas cactus!
More later! I got my first real "cowgirl" hat today! I'm having fun!
Love from Texas!
