We headed back north from Thanksgiving in Fred this afternoon, this time with an extra person in the back seat. Nancy got the call from back home that her mother has taken a turn for the worse, so we dropped her off at the airport for the trip out to Illinois. She was able to get a ticket to Bloomington at a relatively low price and will then drive down to Olney tomorrow to be with her mother and the rest of the family already in town. Doug and Michael will follow at some point, but for now, she'll head out alone.
Surprisingly, traffic wasn't too bad (either going down yesterday or coming back today). I'm not sure where everyone was, but they sure weren't on the highways we were on. (Not that I minded, I'm glad we traffic was as light as it was -- it makes the trip a little less stressful.)
We got the kids ready for bed and I read them a chapter from Robin Hood. There's only a few left and they're getting anxious for it to be finished. Well, M is getting anxious, N couldn't care less -- he just wants it to be over so he can see the movie. I've decided to watch both the 1937 version with Errol Flynn as well as the Disney version. I'm sure the kids won't mind.
