Today was the last “free” day before we start training in earnest. We got out early and did a “dry run” of our morning routine, to make sure we identified any kinks before tomorrow (Thursday) morning. We used the everyone-was-up-and-dressed-and-in-the-van-and-ready-to-go-somewhere opportunity to go over to South Carolina and get some additional items from the store.
We also decided to have an oil change and some other light maintenance done on the van while we shopped. We waited for what seemed like an eternity to our young’uns, so we went and played on a hill to pass the time. In no time at all, everyone found a stick and was very happy.
After that, we made our way over to the home of some very good friends we met last year at Equip, our induction training for Wycliffe. They were gracious enough to allow us to borrow some very important equipment while we were waiting on reinforcements to arrive from Houston. There also might or might not have been fun had in a certain hammock.
And, finally, we made our way over to the home of the amazing homeschool family who will be doing the homeschool activities with our oldest three all month long. Some of the kids were a bit apprehensive, but we discovered they had a trampoline, two goats, a garden, a turkey and a bunch of chickens, so we thought maybe they’re OK after all.
Oh, and they’ve got a dog. Who kinda-sorta-or-at-least-maybe-almost-definitely-according-to-a-four-year-old looks like that dog from Air Bud. He was lots of fun, too.
