We finally landed in Kissimmee, FL at 1130 Thursday night. After 40 hours in the car, 9 tanks of gas, 50 riddles, 20 sudoku games, and 10 Cd's made by our amazing friend Pat, we were ready to be out of the car and be settled. 
It was a long drive, but all our stops were very fun along the way. We truly made the best out of the drive. Sean is an amazing driver and busted through state after state.  We unpacked and got settled yesterday, made dinner and went to bed early. Today, Sean started camp. He was up at 6 for a physical, then onto working out and start spring training. He said it was a great day. He is very excited for the season. He said that there are not very many old guys and a lot of new guys that the Astros' picked up from other teams. Sean says it will be interesting where everyone fits on the teams. We are hoping for a great spring training. Sean feels mentally strong, and physically ready to work harder than any of his teammates. It is exciting to see the fire in his soul for baseball.  We are looking forward to meeting new friends and to be an ongoing light to all around us. I am currently looking for a part time job, but look forward to this time of rest for my body to heal. Please pray for both of us that we will be healthy. Also pray that God will place people in our lives to witness to and befriend. We look forward to opening our home open to boys each week for a home cooked meal. I loved doing it last year and hope to do it more this year.
Thank you for all your prayers. We are safe and excited to start a new chapter in our lives. Please read below for pictures and stories of our journey across the US.
