I hate to drive. I always have, but there are rare occasions where I want something bad enough to overcome the hate of driving to do something! Monday was one of those days. A long time ago, I joined an online group of women for fellowship as I was very isolated and really needed some friends. I have been blessed by their friendships over email through the years and every so often I have had the pleasure of meeting some of them in person. It has always been really fun! One of the ladies was from Alaska and we met about 5 years ago and had a wonderful time. Yesterday we got to see each other again. She has had 3 children since I have seen her last and I had one. We also got to meet several other women from the group as well as another friend from there, I had met a couple times before as well.
Here is a picture of all of us together……
<p> I was just so amazed as not only did I drive 8 hours (4 hours there + an extra half hour to where we spent the night, so I guess it was more like 9) all alone, I did it without a CD/Tape recorder and we all did really well. The car did okay, we spent not much money and we had a wonderful time. The boys had the time of their life playing with the other children and kept asking when we would see them again.  It was alot of fun to see Grace and her boys and one girl again! <p> We were at this beautiful park with a wonderful huge playground too. <p> I came home with the wonderful blessing of a bunch of pears, so I think I will be working on those tomorrow! The boys ate pears all the way home. Then tonight we went to the park with some families from the church and had a nice picnic together. It was really peaceful and nice! <p> My husband goes back to work as school starts tomorrow. He is really excited to be busy again, but as always I pray for everything involved! Back to  early mornings!! My school year is getting all laid out and we almost have everything. Hopefully I get the last book tomorrow and then we can start!
