|Crossing the Mississippi!|
The boys were troopers again today. It was a long drive (and we all groaned when we realized that the change from Eastern to Central time meant another hour of driving) and they were cheerful and cooperative the whole way. We made up a song about crossing the state borders, gave the minivan a name, and listened to most of The Mysterious Howling (volume 1 of The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place series by Maryrose Wood).

Tomorrow's our third long driving day. We'll wind up in Mitchell, South Dakota. I'm looking forward to showing the boys the Corn Palace. Then on Wednesday we'll have a shorter day of driving to get to the Black Hills, where we'll stay put for a few days.
