Back in Jacksonville

Today was a very full day.

We left Milwaukee at 8:30am (pat on the back to us for leaving that early!) in the middle of icky weather-40 degrees and rainy. We drove to West Chicago to meet up with a friend from our days at church in Wheaton, IL. It was really great to see her. We had a delicious lunch with her and some nice time to chat. And surprisingly, Ian was actually very well-behaved while we were there. I was impressed.

We were hoping to meet up with another friend too, but unfortunately the timing didn't work out. So we hit the road for the long trip home. We made it back to Jacksonville late, so we're camping at Grandma Fox's house tonight and Jeremy will head back to work in the morning while I clean up the trailer and take Ian to his speech appointment.

All in all, I think this weekend was very helpful for us. Jeremy did awesome driving and I think he's feeling a lot more confident about that. We learned a few things, like a GPS with lane assist will be bumped up a lot higher on our priority list. Also some bungee cords and/or duct tape to keep the steps from flying open again while driving down the highway-wasn't in the original budget, but we think it should be now. :)

I honestly thought that after moving in supplies for a weekend, we'd be feeling worried about fitting everything in. But there are many, many cabinets that are still empty and the only thing in our large basement storage is strollers. I'm feeling very good about the storage space available. We also have some more ideas on furniture layouts that we want to try.

This weekend really gave us a taste of what things will be like, and everything is better than we had expected. We are even more excited now about being able to hit the road for good in a few more weeks. We just have a lot to do to get ready to go!
