"Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... Anything can happen, child. Anything can be." - Shel Silverstein

Westward We Go

Well, time for another first. We are going on our first overnight trip as a family. My mom and step-dad have been wanting us to come out to Grand Junction, where they now live, for a long time. We have been thinking about it for the whole summer and after many back and forths we have decided to brave it. We have spent the whole day packing up about 3/4 of our house. (Only a tiny exaggeration!) We of course have to make sure we have EVERYTHING Marissa needs plus backups, plus backups for those backups. We are pretty nervous about the whole thing but we felt it would be a great experience for Marissa to find out her world extends beyond Colorado Springs and Denver! Wish us luck and we'll see you on the other side!!
