Books (Read aloud) Cabin on Trouble Creek, This book was written by the same woman who wrote On to Oregon, a book we read aloud for Konos Kids. The author found the story of two boys who survived the winter in a cabin in the Ohio frontier as their father had returned to PA to get their mother and younger siblings. There wasn’t much factual information about the boys so the author wrote the story of what might have happened. (audio book) Peter and the Sword of Mercy by Dave Barry and … The fourth in the series of creative stories of life behind the scenes of the original Peter Pan title. In these books evil is very evil and the suspense is high.
Why do I think that it won’t take days to get us all out of the house? After all these years of packing and planning I would think that I’d get better at making an accurate itinerary. The plan was to leave at about 1 p.m. after the boys finished their Thanksgiving Feast with CCS. We didn’t do too bad leaving at 2 p.m. Usually the ride is about 6 hours up to my sister's home. This time it took us 8 ½! We opted to call out for pizza at about Knoxville and had a picnic in the camper. By 10:30 p.m. we arrived to a welcoming crew. The kids all settled in to catching up with the cousins as did the adults.
