Buh-cation

We had a memory-making, exhaustion-inducing, marathon trip back to where I grew up. We drove more than 2000 miles and stayed in 6 different locations across Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. We crammed more into 8 days than one would dream possible, especially with a Tribe like ours. But it was a trip we will always remember. We pulled in to our driveway and hugged our puppies late this evening, my 2nd load of laundry is washing, and I’m ready to collapse in my favorite bed. Fried but grateful. God is good.

Thankful for a wonderful and memorable trip. And thankful to be home.

Thanks for giving thanks with me.

One thought on “Buh-cation

  1. I am SO GLAD you went back to your roots! Was it 2018 or 2019 when you went once before? And not only did you see family, but some excellent friends from college and high school! Yes, a fast trip, but a precious one. Can you believe we are creeping toward August, and getting ready for school?? I love all the pictures, but the best one of you and Josh is your “ballet” pose on the bench – PERFECT!! I had to laugh at the one of Cooper standing by the creek, where it looks like he was looking down at his phone – LOL! Praying for you to have wisdom, grace and joy for your days, my precious friend. Love always! Hugs to all at your house.
