Unfortunately David had some projects at work that he had to complete, so he wasn't able to travel with us to Tennessee. I knew it would be difficult taking Xander, but without David going I decided it would be too much for me. And since my mom and David's mom offered to keep him, that worked out well. Erin, Nathan, their kids, Amelia Jayne and I all loaded up in my mom's van and headed out to Tennessee. A typically 7-hour drive was a 9-hour drive. It was a lot - 18 hours of driving in 3 days. But it was worth it. Despite the circumstances it was nice to see everyone. My Aunt Karen came in from Virginia and it was a nice visit with her and my dad and Karen. Thanks for your prayers.
