Today, when the kids get out of school, the family and I will hit the road and be gone for a week to my Mother's in CA for Thanksgiving. We were going to leave early tomorrow morning, but decided to drive half way today and stop over night at a hotel and continue the drive tomorrow. It's a good 11-12 hour drive...and with potentially yucky roads....just makes more sense to leave today. So excited! Grandma Hauck will be holding down the fort for us and caring for the animals. Awesome. Thanks, Grandma!
