Having traveled on and seen what seems like a million miles of highway driving, the boys play their hand-held gaming toys to help pass the time. Sometimes there’s interesting stuff to see outside and we call a timeout. Two quiet boys in the back seat is a soothing sight and sound to the road warriors in the front seats. We also read books and have a variety of discussions ranging from the serious to the silly with a bent toward silly if you could imagine.
Ha-ha…when the sun makes the screen hard to see, Dayton has a solution, although a casual glance back in his direction startled me the first time I saw him covered up like this!
I’m not sure exactly why but our movie of the trip is Nacho Libre. We found it for $3 on DVD and have watched it with a few of our hosts along the way and I’m sure we’ll end up watching it a few more times before the trip is over. It’s a lot of fun and we’ve been quoting it or misquoting it (on purpose) all along the trip.
Dayton: “Where is your brother, Ignacio? He was…eh-stinky. But he is my recreational brother.”
Dayton (to one of our ministry partners while they played Tic-Tac-Toe): “I hope you lose or I win!”
Two kids looks quiet. And leaves a little space. Pray for us – we're traveling with four in the back….We're listening to audio drama – endless audio drama, but it keeps them quiet. We've got Narnia, Back of the North Wind, and a few others. But our CD player just died today. That is what I call an emergency!
