Look who's growing up

I'm actually talking about myself this time. Two things you should know about me are this
1. I'm the youngest of 8 kids. So that means I am a total baby.
2. I HATE driving 
Basically this means I never do road trips by myself. Besides my Dad always worried about us driving alone so it scared me. (I did say I was the baby of the family)Not to mention I have 3 boys. Well last Thursday I woke up, called my sister Terri and said I'm coming up. I don't know what got into me. Boredom?
So I think I figured out the key to a successful road trip for the Schultz family minus Scott ....
Nintendo Ds for max
Sonic the hedgehog videos for Ollie
Leaving at Harper's nap time for Harper and myself
A good book on CD(the Host) for me
I'm telling you with the book it almost makes me like the drive. It really keeps your mind off the fact that your tailbone hurts(I think I have an extra vertebra cuz my tailbone always hurts when I have to sit for too long)
My sisters Terri and Cathy live in a small town in northern California called Newman. It's the kind of town where they ran out of creativity for street names so they just used a letter like R Street. It always smells of cow poops. But I think it's kinda charming and it's an hour and a half away from everything. Like San franisco, Santa Cruz, Monterey, Yosemite and Target. WE had a fantastic time. I will be posting more on the trip this week. I just thought you should all know what a big girl I am!

Have fun on "R" street 1 1/2 hours from Target! Wow! Super Mom to go on a road trip all by yourself with 3 boys, one of them a baby! If you get a flat tire Max and Ollie can use their super powers to save the day, or you can call AAA! Have FUN!

The very 1st thing I asked my mom when she told me you were in Newman was, "Who drove with her?" I CAN'T believe YOU drove all the way there!

ps. in philadelphia there was a street named "Street Road." Pretty funny.

awww...all growd up. but you shouldn't be admitting it cuz now people are gonna make you do it more now. hahaha.

Good for you. You would never survive where I live... well for many reasons.. but mainly because there is nothing out here at all. Everything is at least one hour away, and the big city is 3 1/2 hours away. I'm glad your trip went well. Always fun to spend time with sisters. I read the host earlier this summer too. Are you twilight fan too? Secretly, ........i'm obsessed :)

Your A Big Girl Now (sung to the tune of Toy's R' Us)!!!

Its amazing what growing up does to the baby of the family....I should know....I am the baby of 5 kids. Its the greatest. Next thing you know, you will be saying no to things you really don't want to do.

Growing up is GRRREEEEATTTT!

Beth said...

I am so proud of you! Mostly because I am the one who ends up driving for you on other long trips! (I am glad you went without me cause I was feeling a little guilty for backing out.)

Crystal said...

I hate driving too! Its not so bad if I know the way to where Im going, but it stresses me out if its to a new place. Getting lost sucks.

Congrats on your successful journey.
