It started with a wedding invitation. A humble beginning, as all great adventures often have.
Being a homeschool Mom, and slightly selfish thrill seeker with a wanderlust filled heart, I simply could not pass this opportunity up. Our trip was already expected to be two weeks. Our, being my kids and I, since my husband was not able to take off work during that time. I had driven to Arizona alone with the kids, and to Iowa and Illinois many, many times. But this road trip would be an entirely new beast. Unknown. Big. Over three weeks long. Exhausting. And full of adventure of monumental proportions.
