Yesterday I mentioned I had a minor thing to tell and this is it:
We're driving to Texas next week.... a week from today to be exact.
It all started when Adam's Grandpa (Mike, who lives in Texas) really started to go downhill as far as his health is concerned. So Adam's mom (Monique) flew down there this past Monday to be with him for as long as it took. Adam's dad and sister (Chris and Ally) planned to drive down on the 23rd and invited us to come. They would be staying in a beach house near where we stayed last year and would be there a little over a week.
Long story short, we said yes.
There are mixed feelings because this trip is for a very sad reason in soon losing Monique's dad. At the same time, we didn't know if we would be able to do any kind of time off this year and time away from the norm, but this is kind of forcing us to...... and it's on the beach.................so yea, we lucked out there.
I'm just thanking God for the unforeseen time away and
for His hand in the remainder of Mike's days here.
Let the planning and packing commence.
(Meg, if you still ever read this: we need to meet up!!!!)
