Day 18 - A Crazy Turn of Events

Tim and I have been known to change our plans at the last minute a time or two.  Our favorite memory has to be the morning we sent the kids off to school, but before they even arrived, we had called the carpool driver asking her to bring them back home after she'd dropped her own off.

Why?  We had decided to go to Florida!  To say that Tyler and Amy were surprised would be an understatement.  It was a crazy turn of events, but it proved to be a wonderful time together as a family.

This week, we did it again!  On Thursday, we changed our plans from just two of us going to Texas, to all of us going to Texas.   Soon after it was decided, I was kicking myself - I had now committed myself to packing for SIX rather than just two!  The extra work was well worth it, and our family has a had wonderful time on our Texas Road Trip!

Although it doesn't always jive with my too-practical, always-have-a-plan personality, I'm thankful for the Crazy Turn of Events.  It keeps life interesting and provides a collection of interesting memories for years to come!
