The Trav-ELS have begun

Yesterday we piled into a rented minivan- And headed on a big road trip. Our goal departure time was 5am. We left at 7am. Destination: lake Geneva, Wisconsin for Escape to the Lake 2014. We drove and drove and drove all the way to Wildwood, Missouri. We grabbed a quick dinner upon arrival and headed to bed.
We've had our not so good moments and we've had great ones. Let me pause to brag on the ELs for a minute. These kids are amazing travELers. Seriously amazing. They hardly ever complain and as I write this they've spent approximately 17 hours in the car over the last two days. We didn't plan to watch movies. But, we lucked out with our car rental. I can't complain. It's worked out great and Three out of the four Els have slept a lot. And El Dad has done all of the driving. Not that I don't want to drive. He seems to like it and I'm a great passenger.
We will arrive at ETTL in the next hour in the final minutes of registration. Oh how I hope our cabin/ room is ready for this family to do a quick change before the first session and dinner. So far, it's been a great experience. Seeing America like this is inspiring. PS. I think I'm in love with Missouri...
