It was fine!
Sure, there was some whining, some "are we there yet"s and even a "do NOT ask again how much farther this ENTIRE day!" But, all in all, the kids have really grown into car travel. I'm amazed, and rather relieved. We thought back to how much Sammy fussed and cried on our car trip the year before (some extra views here), and how hard travel was when we couldn't explain ahead of time that it would be ALL day long... and realized how easy we have it now. The boys read and looked and books, colored on pages on their clipboards and played little cardboard travel games. On the Christmas trip they didn't even sleep except for maybe two hours at the very end. We actually enjoyed the time - how crazy is that?! I'm impressed with them and really grateful... especially as our next road trip looms on the horizon.
