Zteen's magical mystery tour....

| | Comments (3)

Zteen is on his two week driving vacation with one of his friends, hereafter known as Sguy. They've know each other since they were six, and for the last two years they've dreamed of taking a vacation together "when school was over." Well, it finally is for Zteen, and we made the decision to let him go. He saved up the money, he's a responsible young man. Yes, I'm worried, but then I'm a mom, you know! Plus, it made me feel good to know that on Zteen's list of "To Do's Before I Go" were the following items for Saturday:

Confession 4:45 p.m.
Mass 5:30 p.m.
Mam-mom's 7:00 p.m.

Can't really fault a guy who leaves confessed, communicated and hugged by his grandmother.

They left Sunday morning at 7:15 a.m. Yes, two teenagers left that early in the morning. It is surprising what they can do when they want to. They are required to call us when they stop for the night and when they decide where they are headed the next day. The only thing they (and we!) know for sure is that Mount Rushmore is the first stop. Needless to say, you can't get there in one day from here!



565 miles, from Arlington to Alexandria NE, where they camped. And it started raining.


Sounds like a lot of fun. I'll keep them in my prayers for a safe and memorable trip.

(What about Wall Drug? And the Corn Palace in Mitchell, SD? I haven't been to the Dakotas since I was very young but I remember a lot of the highlights. The Corn Palace struck me as kind of a non-event. I think it's some sort of exhibition hall, but I was expecting a "palace.")

cool trip! i never did anything fun like that, but raising kids is enough adventure for me.

love reading this morning got sent here from dnielle site. reminded me of my vacation hree years ago after raing all my kids and a grandchild traveling these roads of usa I got more than two weeks but to do it in youth must be a joy God BLess them
