Aaron and I hit the road this morning at 4:30am. We arrived in Houston, Texas at around 8:00pm. That's 1,108 miles the first day.
Aaron and I caught up on all that's been going on in our lives. He's been out of the country since January involved in missions and ministry. Road trips have always been the way our family has stayed connected with each other.
Part of road trip preparation is the ritual creation and burning of a mixed music disc. We cranked the car stereo louder than usually allowed and sang Weezer, Brand New, and Dashboard Confessional off key at the top of our lungs. I didn't know all the words so I just made them up as I went. Aaron expressed displeasure with this very lame paternal musical interpretation.
Every day we have a task list to work through to get things ready for Ali's departure from the hospital. Yesterday's meeting with Child Protective Services was preparation for a hearing that will take place on June 6. We appreciate your continued prayers for favor.
