A few months back, as we were pulling out of Logan with our trailer in tow, I remember looking into the backseat of the Jeep at my kids propped out with books, toys and an extravagant snack bag, and feeling a tad anxious. Okay, a lot anxious. They had no idea at that point in time what the summer had in store for them, but I did.
Now three months later, I am no longer anxious - just proud. My kids are incredible really!!! They have been the best little troopers these last few months, sleeping here, there and everywhere. Readily climbing back into their carseats upon instruction that yes, it's another travelling day.
Well our Medicine Hat adventure came to a end this past weekend. We extended our stay an extra day, leaving room for another social gathering to hang with new friends and old and for Robin - another test firing. This one, unfortunately blew up on him, but he did get a sweet load out from the soda kiln and it nearly took us the entire extra day to sort, pack and load the pots into every available square inch of our vehicle.
Luckily we only had to make the drive back to Calgary before unloading, resorting and repacking the trailer this time to head out to the Kootenays. The kids are now snuggled down in their beds with the promise that we'll stay put for two solid weeks (I know, can you imagine?) without having to spend more than 1/2 hour in the car per day.
