Sand Underfoot

I leave tomorrow for a five-day trip to Florida with my youth group. I’m really looking forward to the retreat itself, but not so much to the drive there and back. I love road tripping, but I prefer to do it alone or with just one or two other people. I’ll admit that caravanning in a rented mini van with four teenagers for several hundred miles with two other vehicles doesn’t top my list of favorite things. It’s like practicing for my future as a soccer mom without the benefit of having had the sex that produced the offspring howling in the back seat. Still, I do enjoy getting to know the kids better in a smaller group than youth meetings usually afford. Plus, I’ll eventually end up on a beach in the gulf. That’s good, right?
