We are packing up our campsite right now. It is a "challenging" job, to say the least, made worse by this hot, dry weather. The sun is almost unbearable, and I'm glad to have the job of sitting by Benjamin in the shade. Sam has been "washing" dishes in the water, and I think the only thing that got wet was him. At least he is keeping cool!
The plan for today is to finish up here then head to Colorado Springs. We hope to see Focus on the Family, garden of the gods, and maybe Pikes Peak before we head towards the Grand Canyon. We will be driving all night, again, to arrive there in the morning.
Ben and Sam are doing great! They both did so well yesterday while traveling through the Rockies, all day long. Benjamin let us know a few times that he was tired of his seat, but for the most part, he was so good natured. Sam did well too, and was very compliant. He fell asleep before we got back to the campsite, and slept all night long.
I'm not sure when I'll be able to update again, since today is a travel day. Please continue to keep us in your prayers- we're having a great time and God has kept us safe thus far.
