Big Ride

We are now in Alabama - a happy family in a small 2 bed/2 bath rental. the kids all did really good on the way over...a 5 1/2 hour trip all together. We got to Birmingham Saturday afternoon and stayed in a nice hotel with free hot breakfast, then drove the 3 hours south to our place. Merrill has enjoyed some home-cooked dinners and lunches.....and the boys are enjoying their "Thrift Shop" toys - 25 cents will get a lot of old McDonald's-Happy-Meal-Toys in Alabama. If it would just stop raining we could take the boys out side to use their bubbles and ball we got at the Enterprise Civic Center (Wal*Mart).

How long will you be in Alabama? You are by Enterprise? What post is that? I think I have good friends there. As a matter of fact, they are trying to sell their very nice house - with a pool- right now because they move this summer to Leavenworth for his Majors course. They are the Mendenhalls, you can see their blog from mine.

Okay, I checked with my friend and they live in Enterprise and attend the Enterprise Ward. She is the 1st counselor in the Primary, her name is Sara. I hope you get to meet them. How long will you be at Rucker? Her hubbie Shane is a medivac pilot, he has been teaching at Rucker for two years now.
