The Big Picture

The Last Part of the Journey

As you might know, we have just returned from spring break in Vermont.  The six hour drive isn't too bad,  but if you're familiar with this part of the country, you know the scenery consists of cows, barns, hills, and trees. 
"Can we listen to the LARIOUS song?" Silas asked the last hour of the trip.  FYI, the "larious song" is a song that sister Mary once played  for Silas in order to cheer him up.  She shook her hair around with such aggression that Silas thought it was hilarious.  Now it's known as the "larious song.".
Without question,  the last part of the journey is always the hardest, the longest, the loudest. I try to be prepared with plenty of ammo:  the larious song, of course, but also food, music, gum, candy, videos. I will stop at almost nothing to keep my kids, and especially the baby, happy.  And woe to the child who needs to stop for the bathroom while the baby is asleep!
It looks as if my family and I are on the last part of our journey here in Norwich, as our house went up for sale this week.  That being said, I plan to simplify.  My blogs will be sporadic from here on out, but you can follow me on twitter @mom_of_nine.
"Once you find out you're leaving, you're already gone," someone said to me just before we moved to Vermont.  I have found it to be true--with six kids to plan for, both my heart and mind are racing ahead to the future. 
Just like those road trips, the last part of this journey is the hardest. 
PS Here's a link to the Larious Song video (aka Born Again by Newsboys)

Generally I don't read article on blogs, however I would like to say that this write-up very compelled me to try and do so! Your writing style has been surprised me. Thank you, very great article.
