Yes! We made it to Nova Scotia! We arrived the evening of August 22nd, 2012 after 7 days of driving. What an adventure . Although I expected to be updating the blog as we drove along it just. didn’t. happen. Whenever we stopped somewhere with WiFi I just ran in, grabbed food and headed back to the bus! Either that or Larry was the one running in. We couldn’t really leave the bus alone with all of us in a stopping place because we couldn’t lock the front door properly!
In any case, it’s all a bit of a blur.
If anything is certain – I thank God for portable DVD players. Our children were SO happy as long as we were on the road and they were plugged in. Hey – whatever it takes!
In any case, they were pretty cheerful, the trip cost less than we expected, and we’re all ready to forget it now (although the children have fond memories of their trip, Larry and I were a bit burned out at the end of it). I didn’t even take photos. (I’m a bit photo challenged at the best of times.)
Larry did ALL the driving – what a man!
SO! The house needs a LOT of work! It’s in progress and likely will be for a couple of years . We’re still mostly living out of boxes – left all the furniture behind in Alberta, and don’t have much built yet (but we did buy a nice new couch and clothes dryer and Larry built me my first bookcase, dining room table, bed, and island for the kitchen).
Life is good, baby is due to arrive in 2 weeks – stay tuned .
