Thalia: Hi Mimi!!! Today we pack, tomorrow we drive!
...and then we talked about how excited we both were to see each other.
Fast forward to 9:30 p.m.
Thalia: HI MIMI...ARE YOU EXCITED...WE'RE DRIVING!!!
Me: You're what? Where are you?
Thalia: We're in the truck...we already left, are you excited?
Me: YEAH! I'M ABSOLUTELY EXCITED.
Inside, however, I was cringing at the thought of Joshua taking off AT NIGHT to drive. Of course, I didn't bring to mind the MANY times Ron and I use to do that on our Texas trips when our kids were young....
Joshua and Thalia made it safe and sound...got here about 4:30 p.m. yesterday. Last night, Thalia was ready to play SORRY. She got the board all set up. After 7 games, it was Mimi: 4, Thalia: 3.
As I shuffled the cards, Thalia was impressed and wanted to learn how to shuffle...so I taught her.
Once she learned...she became THE shuffler!
