Hello From Ft Smith, Arkansas

Just a quick hello as we check out of our hotel in AR.

Yesterday was our longest day in the car at 9 hours, 30 minutes. But it's worth it to be half way finished.

Good news: The DVD works at 45 minute increments, so we are making do.

Bad news: We have all developed colds. The Girl had a fever the night before we left AZ. She has obediently done what we have taught her her whole life: Share.

Not only has she given it to us, but to my parents as well.

But it's all good and we are looking forward to our drive today, the last of the long drives. THe last two days we are breaking up into 4 hour increments. We should arrive just east of Nashville, just in time for rush hour traffic! Yippee!

Oh, and the homeschooling that was going to get done in the car?

Yeah, right.

OK, The Mister and The Boy are out getting breakfast and I am supposed to be in the shower!!

Gotta Go!

La Vida Dulce!
