These two backpacks contain EVERYTHING we have brought for this Europe adventure. Many doubted (even I did at times) if we could really do it. But we were serious! Today we arrived in our 4th country and we are going strong. Life is good and travelling is fun!
Today is Riley's Birthday, HAPPY BIRTHDAY RILEY!!!
After getting 20 hours of drving in in the last week to get the required 50 hours, Riley took his driver's test today. We were hoping he would pass so it wouldn't ruin his birthday... and luckily he did! YAY!
Sam is now 18 and today was the first time he could vote. We made it an outing and all went. The workers applauded for Sam cause he was a first time voter...the funny thing was the gal asked Katie if she was a first time voter because she looked so young! Life is good and it is a great privilege to live in a country where we can vote! Make a difference GO VOTE!
