We’ve been on the road for roughly 33 hours! It felt so good to be traveling yesterday morning. The familiar highways of the northeast were rushing and then not so rushing past yesterday as we made our way to Philly for our 7 o‘clock concert appointment. The traffic was stop and go near NYC but I guess that’s to be expected. The fog was beautiful over the city from our view point on the George Washington Bridge!
I’ve been to Philadelphia twice before but this time we got to see a little more of the streets as we scoured the area for a parking spot. Ehem. We did finally find a parking spot. Miracles do happen! We did have to double park in front of the church to unload. :-P
Isn’t that art work kinda cool?
We got to meet up with some new friends as well as old in the city! Patterson, Smith, Levis, and Kocher families were represented. We had a nice time meeting them, most for the first time in person! It was great hanging out with them before the concert and after. Thank you all for making the first part of our trip so fun!
Technically, we had a really rough concert. Bonnie’s guitar that plugs in to the sound system was sadly forgotten at home, dad’s mic was hissing, mom’s mic wasn’t working well, Bonnie’s wireless vocal mic was cutting in and out and eventually she had to use another mic. (I’m wondering if some of this trouble wasn’t caused by being in a city. :-/ ) We’ve all been fighting colds and coughing so, ehem, some of our voices were rough. Thankfully, the Lord can work and DOES work even in things that don‘t sound like we think they should.
Pictures from that night….thanks to Daniel for most of these. : )
LOL….ok, some people weren’t ready for this pic.
There we go. :)
Thank you all for help with the packing up. That was great!
We’re hurrying down to Virginia to split wood and visit the grandparents. :) I doubt this will get posted for a while since yeah they have dial-up and last time knew their modem was broken,….so, we’ll see when the next Wifi spot is! (Note: modem was fixed, still too slow to upload pics.)

Listening to Blue Ridge - He Will Set Your Field on Fire, Rock Foundation and more!
Place: Wal-Mart - Winchester, VA
At this very moment I’m disgusted with Wal-Mart. They have reduced the fabric department to yarn, needles, and very little crafts. NO, fabric, NO embroidery floss. It’s just disgraceful. I walked out of that store not purchasing a solitary item. :-/ I hope they next Wal-Mart is better. *sniff*
Now that my rant is over…. ; ) …. We’ve left dial-up, my grandparents and a few stacks of split wood and now we’re headed to West Virginia! It was Bonnie’s birthday today as well!! We had her party and cake before we took off this afternoon.
*Carol just left the bus to run after a hopeful WiFi connection* * Carol returns with no connection and is now enjoying AC* *Thinks to herself how hot it is in the sun*
Here are a few pictures of Bonnie. Oops! I forgot to resize them....hmm...ok. You'll have to wait for the next post. Or maybe Bonnie will post some? I've only a little more time before church starts so I'll just tell you we're in WV (this is Sunday) and we'll be headed over to Ohio after tonight. Thanks for all your prayers for us as we travel!
