July 4th at 1:30 am we pulled into our hometown! We prayed and thanked the Lord for bringing us through so many miles safely and without any problems with the van. We also thanked Him for taking away my fever~ Thursday morning, I woke up feeling 100% better! Thank you so much for all who have prayed for us as we've been traveling.
Thursday night, we stopped in Sacramento (about 3 hours south of our hometown) and were able to visit/meet the Burnetts, a homeschooling family of 10 who are from Oklahoma, but were in Californina for a ATI conference. What a sweet family! It was a wonderful break from the llloooonnnngggg drive to fellowship in their hotel room and the children had fun playing with their older ones.
Yesterday, we spent the day with GRANDMA and GRANDPA! :) We started the day at their church for a time of games, food, and fellowship. Then we went back home for an hour so our little ones and tired hubby could take a nap. The older ones helped me unpack, do laundry, clean out the van ect... and then we all headed over to Grandma/pa's house to swim. And then, Grandpa treated everyone to pizza! What a fun day! We got home close to 10 pm, sang some songs, Daddy shared from the Bible, we prayed and then "hugs, kisses, and to bed!" It's almost 8 am and everyone...even Eliseo...is still asleep this morning :)
Tomorrow Daniel preaches up at a church in the mountains (Burney, CA). We are looking forward to seeing more of our family and friends and sharing together about the wonderful things the Lord has done! Blessed be His precious name!
