Packing for a Road Trip

I love road trips.  I love leaving early in the morning with a Timmy's in hand and hitting the road for adventures known or unknown.  I have always loved road trips.  I like seeing new places, especially out of the way places and I like meeting new people.  For me the planning and the getting there is just as much a part of the whole journey as the destination.

Today, I am packing for a special road trip.  Jason and I leave before the sun is up on Friday morning to head south for a mission trip.  Our final destination is just outside of Memphis, Tennessee.  Can you imagine a better mission trip for two people who love music?  I am hoping that there will be just a little time to hear some local musicians.  Maybe we will even be working with some!  If you know of any great places I would love to hear about them.

Our church usually has a mission trip twice a year and this is the first time that I have been able to go (I usually stay home with the kids) so I can't wait.  I am not exactly sure what kind of serving that we will be doing down there but we will be helping to build a building at a camp!  Have I ever built a building before?  No, not even close but I am willing to do what I can.  I am not much of a handy girl but I can sing tunes as we work and I am great at cleaning up and fetching tools for people who know what they are doing!  I am looking forward to seeing what God has in store.

As I said though, today I am packing, doing lots of laundry so I have something to pack and organizing and packing some more.
