Who would have thought that packing, doing laundry, loading the car, and finding underwear for multiple days, multiple children, would be so exhausting! Two more trips before I call it quits and lay low for the remaining months of this pregnancy. Let me take that back-- I honestly don't think I know how to lay low, but at least the travel will slow down. :)
I thought it such a fun coincidence that two of you creative readers both recommended the "wrapping-an-exciting-car-activity-for-each-child" idea. So I'm trying it today! It worked out well since I've wanted to slowly add to a road-trip-bag of exciting activities for our family trips and homeschooling expeditions. I thought [amazon_link id="B004PBLP5O" target="_blank" ]these[/amazon_link] were reminiscent of the Colorform activities I grew up with. Caroline and Johanna will love these. For Ainsleigh and Annabelle, a [amazon_link id="B0015KW3VI" target="_blank" ]classic activity[/amazon_link] I've always wanted (needed) them to have in the backseat.
I'm sure I will know the exact moment to pull these polkadot packages out of my bag to pass to little hands. Right about the time Bobby and I are ready to stop the car and let everyone run around the car 10 times. :)
I hope you have nice weekend. I'll be back Monday morning!
