Hi! Rachel speaking. Welcome to our blog. I hope you'll stay with us until the end - the end of our trip, that is. Launch date: July 8. Until then, we'll just take you along as we get ready.
Every family has the story they tell to everyone. My family has quite a few. One is Christian's first words. Here is the story:
Once my mom went to put Christian's coat on. He was only a year old at the time. Once he had his coat on, he must have realized that that meant he was going somewhere. Christian smiled and said,"Go! Yay! Go!"
Well, this summer my family is "go"ing. What I mean by that is we are leaving our house in Belchertown, Massachuesetts to spend 6 weeks traveling (by car) and end up in Middleton, Wisconsin. Half of those nights will be spent camping in our pop-up camper. Trust me, with a 2-year-old, that could be a disaster. During the trip we will visit lots of family, 2 countries ( U.S. and Canada ) and 23 states. I don't even want to know how many hours that will take.
Right now a bunch of boxes seem to be feasting off of our house - all in preparation for moving. They eat everything from cups to my stuffed animals. I loooooooove stuffed animals and blankets. I told my mom that the boxes couldn't eat a single one of my 3 million blankets or Stitch Bear, a stuffed bear I've had forever. I guess they will get swallowed up eventually, but not now.
