The Kids helped clean all day yesterday.
They each packed their own clothes.
I stayed up late packing the van and making sure everything was ready to go.
I got up early this morning to take a shower and pick up the house for my DH who is staying at home to work on his dissertation.
The Kids woke excited to drive back to Saint Paul to see friends and dance at Irish Fair.
We got in the van.
It wouldn't start.
We're waiting for a tow truck.
Everyone is bummed. super. bummed.
(Please say a little prayer that this is a quick, inexpensive fix and we can still make our trip.)
UPDATE: We made it. We left two and a half hours, $117, and a new battery later. Thanks for the prayers. Stay tuned for pictures from our trip.
