Coleen and I are both excited about continuing our journey. She has been a great help the past few days as I've worked steadily to get things ready. I'm not sure how I would have managed without her handing me tools, holding a flashlight, crawling in tight spaces and giving me hugs when I got discouraged. She is quite the first mate!
We could conceivably leave today, but have decided to instead attend church, take the dog for one last trip to the dog park and wash, and then have a restful afternoon. I think it's better not to start an adventure when you are exhausted. So a day of rest ahead - well earned I'd say!
