On the road again

This morning I piled the kids into the car after their half day at school and we drove to visit a college friend. The trip should've taken 4 1/2 hours (not counting potty breaks). It took nearly 8 hours.

And through it all, the three of them were beyond amazing. This isn't delusional or Pollyanna or my-kids-are-so-perfect. Really. Three borderline fussing by the boys. One serious yelling for something by the toddler. I got to listen to some Talking Heads and Sylvester on the radio between Dan Zanes and Laurie Berkner.

We were stuck in some of the worst traffic I have ever seen. At one point, it took one hour to drive five miles.

My friend is worth it. And my kids are too.
