So the rest of the morning we finished up on some homeschooling, and then jumped in the car and drove into Nashville to meet my niece and her fiance'. We had hugs all around as our kids hadn't seen their cousin for years. Then Tim whisked the kids just 4 minutes away to a museum that they got in free with our MOSI passes, and I stayed and hung out to catch up with my niece and her fiance'. We ended up spending like 2 1/2 hours together - it was so nice! They dropped me off at the museum and then shortly after that we had to be kicked out as they were closing (do all museums close at 5pm? - why can't they be open longer?). We've been to a lot of big cities on our trip and driven in a lot of traffic, and I have to say Nashville's rush hour is really not that bad. So far, I think Chicago's is the WORST! Great city - but hate the traffic!
Anyway, my dad's situation has obviously been on my mind all day, and I'm glad for a forum to unashamedly solicit prayers for him. They will be much appreciated! Oh, here are some pictures from today:
