Travelling with Jesse

Well, if I thought keeping up with Jesse at home was a challenge, it only gets worse as we travel. He has so much energy and being in the car for 6 or more hours a day, doesn't help! He does like to help though, Every time the GPS gives a command, he repeats it to Stu. He acts like Stu can't hear it at all! Juls was getting frustrated with him repeating it all the time and kept asking him to stop. So he got to where after it gave a command he would be quiet for a minute acting like he wanted to repeat it and then say, "Juls will you get mad at me if I say it?" Then he would ask me to say it.
Then we were at our first meeting at a supporting church. I was talking to the Pastor's wife, who was very pregnant, and Jesse almost punched her in the stomach. I told him not to do that and said that she had a baby in there so he needed to be careful. He squatted down and looked up under her shirt, then stood up and said, "She does not have a baby in there!". I was trying not to crack up!
My boys have discovered drinking fountains and are fascinated by them. Every time they see one, they want to go get a drink. It is such a new thing for them. It's also weird seeing toilets with seats, cars staying in their own lanes, stores with sale racks outside and no one watching them! I could go on, but I won't.
We will be crossing over into Canada tomorrow. The girls get to go to camp and see lots of their old friends. They are very excited! We are also excited about seeing friends and family and our "baby" Lighthouse Baptist Church in Alliston.
I am off to try to get some sleep. I have not caught up since we left at 5 am on Monday. Good Night!


  1. I had to laugh at your "wierd" things you see in the States. I know EXACTLY how you feel! So funny.

    Have a great time! And get some rest!


  2. Our boys were also totally fascinated with water fountains too! If I couldn't find them in our church auditorium they were out in the foyer taking turns drinking out of the fountain and turning it on for each other with a group of church kids standing around laughing with them at their new discovery! It was great! Hope you enjoy your furlough!

  3. I am so happy you are here!
