Another 1100 Mile Drop-off

It is Summer Intensive Season.  Isaac was invited back, this time to dance the roll of Puck from Midsummer Night's Dream.  But even though most of our trips are because of the boy and his dancing, they are not all about him.  This time it was our 6 year old's turn to go.

We decided it was time to get her ears pierced.

She was so excited to have a surprise to show her sisters when she got home.  

It is a blinkin' long drive and we were in my good husband's car.  It gets something like 40 miles per gallon, but it is not comfortable and has no air conditioning--in fact, the heat and fan only have two options: off or full-blast.  Most of the time it is not that big of a deal, but yesterday it was bad.  The sun was really beating down and the fan only blew the hot air off the engine.  We rolled down the windows and at 80+ miles per hour, it was LOUD.  At those speeds, it didn't do much to cool us down--even with all of the windows down, the wind mostly blew past us instead of in.  Finally, as we continued north, the clouds rolled in and we were blessed by rain.


It was only then that we knew we would survive the drive!


Looking on the bright side of this ballet adventure (I forced myself to write adventure instead of  garbage), I do enjoy my long dates with one of the sisters.
