Lessons & Traditions: Road Trip Style
For the first two weeks of our trip, we didn’t have any refrigeration in our Airstream trailer. We relied on coolers to keep our perishables chilled. While using the coolers wasn’t so bad, it did make meal planning more of a chore than ever.
Teaching moment: Driving through the plains of Oklahoma without that crucial “modern conveniences” had me thinking about the first settlers in that area. Those brave men and women roughed it without so much as ice. I wondered what they

Finding The Good
We’ve just started our cross-country trek, but we’re already experiencing — and learning — so much.
For instance, Marshall cut through a tendon on his thumb and had to have it surgically repaired. He now sports a soft cast all the way up to his elbow and covering all but his ring and pinky finger. The cast is soft, but it’s also large and bulky.
