I am looking forward to
- Going to see lighthouses
- Going on some tours
- Wondering around the town
- Exploring Acadia
I am not looking forward to...
- Being stuck in the car for more than 10 hours
- Kids whining
- Kids fighting
- Kids not listening
- One of the children refusing to hike (bike, walk, etc)
- Being stressed out
We hope to leave tomorrow by 7 am...
Are we packed? No.
Do we have snacks ready? No.
Have we planned any activities in Maine? No.
Can this turn into a disaster of a trip? Yes.
Will we still have fun? YES
Will we ever learn to get ready and prepare in advance?
We have learned that poor planning leads to disaster (like our camping trip, when we forgot 1) the tarp and 2) bag with all the clothing....). But life always gets in the way - our last 2 weeks have been packed with guests, activities, back-to-school shopping, new shed, grandparents buying a house.
