It’s about a 7-hour drive out of state. But since my husband loves to drive, and Jackson and I enjoy all the things you can do in a car drive (let me tell you, LOTS more than Finch and I had to do when we were little and driving places with Mom), it’s a pleasant time.
One of the things I noticed this trip, the further into the plains we drove, was large flocks of birds (sometimes enormous ones–flocks, not birds) sitting on telephone wires.
(Not to mention the delightful time we had with all our family. As Jackson said, “it’s our home away from home!”)
