Note: Our blog was giving us a runaround for the past several weeks. We weren’t able to post all the exciting things that occurred in our vacation to California (following an awesome debate camp). If you weren’t following us on Facebook, you missed it, but here is the post–finally restored–from August 25, the day before we left.
Traveling is so much fun. Anxious, but worth every headache.
The Jeubs are heading across the West — 18-20 hours of driving — to get to California for Training Minds Ministry’s Lincoln-Douglas Debate Camp. The van is packed, the children out of bed, and the last items are being dumped into the trailer.
The idea of traveling with so many children is daunting to most, but is has always been one of our biggest joys. The excitement is almost overwhelming to the little ones. They’ve been looking forward to this much like they look forward to Christmas. We manage to make the best of the excitement, taking advantage of the opportunity to clean the house and organize things.
Take this picture of how we travel, for example. Suitcases are a hassle. Tubs stack orderly in the trailer and work much, much better.
