Location: Heading to Kentucky
Audio Book: Five Children and It by E. Nesbit. We all have laughed about this tale of vacationing siblings who find a psammead and dream up a wish per day. Of course the outcome of every wish is not how they envisioned it.
Four hours behind schedule we head out with half our family - me and the four youngers - in a car loaded down with enough stuff to take us through camping at the beach and living through the summer at camp.
In the depths of the blackness of the crate sits Baxter. Unwilling to be left behind she darted (as quick as her arthritic hips would allow her) into the crate when we opened the hatch to pack. There she remained for 2 hours nervously panting and patiently waiting. Off to summer camp she goes!
