We are off on another weekend trip, this time to Memphis. This is a big deal for us to be gone from the store. Last weekend my niece Melissa worked for us to go to Philip's birthday weekend. This weekend is different, we are closing the store from Friday to Monday. We normally only take off one week in April and one in November. When we heard that The Maxwell Family was coming to Memphis for a conference we knew we needed to go. This is the same conference Arthur and I went to in California , this past January. We received such a blessing from the conference that we wanted our children to be able to attend. The Maxwell's have been homeschooling for over 20 yrs, have 8 children, 2 grandchild (1 has gone to be with the Lord), and have written many books not just about homeschooling. I can't tell you how excited I am...YAY!!!! We are going to try and leave around 8 am(Arthur's time) which means 9am(my time)......I'm always behind but, so much better than I use to be. Arthur said "I'll be glad to be on the road by 9:30am". I'm really going to do my best, I want to surprise him and be ready on his time not mine. The kids are all packed, the house is in good shape, and here I am on the computer. I can't ever sleep before a trip....could be to much coffee?! While in Memphis we are going to try to take in a few sites, and meet up with Brian Arthur's nephew. Even looking at a 6 hour drive ahead, I know it will be well worth it.
The Maxwell Family also has a blog. It gives a glimpse into day to day life on the road and of the building of their home...all the work being done by the family.
Praying for God's hand to be upon us and travel mercies.
