Getting Ready for the trip!

Well today I was all set to go run some last min errands and ....we are blocked in with TAR TRUCKS! Talk about being able to roll with it. I looked out keys in hand and Mickey looked at me and said "Might be time for a Hail Mary huh?" I couldn't help but laugh they know me well. So we are doing everything we can to get things set here and I will use Sheff's truck, he will park at the church at the end of our street, to run out for last minute things tonight.

The kids helped make their own canvas bags for the trip. We purchased the bags for $2.50 each and then used cloth paint markets. They loved the activity and will all get a new book and some special prizes in their bag for the trip.
