the longest haul
Today we begin the most dreaded part of our trek. It's the longest haul. As we leave the loved ones we've visited behind, we set our eyes and hearts toward home.
The place we've created a nest for ourselves. The land of berries and pleasant summers. The location where we've put down roots over the last eleven years, and made memories.
The longest haul. Five days of pushing, pushing, pushing. Trying to balance rest with efficiency. Meals on the go, a different bed every night. And in the end...home. Home.
We covet your prayers during this time. This is likely the most difficult part of our journey. We are tired, we have passed the climax of our trip, we're a little frayed and fairly homesick. Please pray for happy hearts, safe travel, and a very patient baby.
Thanks for reading about our adventures. Happy Trails!
