After 18 hours in the car–which included driving through the night, some Chick-fil-a breakfast, two roadside state welcome centers and more than a few potty breaks–we arrived yesterday afternoon to the JAARS center just south of Waxhaw, NC.
We arrived after normal business hours, so we used the “night drop” check-in to get the keys for our apartment: a 3-bedroom, 1 3/4 bath ground-floor (yea!) place which will be our home for the next month or so. There’s a playground right next door, and lots of fun new-to-us things to explore, like the recliner in the living room–if the first 24 hours is any indication, this will be an endless source of fascination and entertainment for the boys…they haven’t been able to leave it alone for more than 5 minutes since we arrived.
Here’s the photo for today–all of us, in front of our new temporary home: happy to be here safely, and to not be sitting in a car seat. Thank you, all, for your prayers for our travels.
