Day 1185 -- Electronics

On this long, long drive home, I am thankful today for the existence of electronics galore to keep my kids content and distracted.

We have laptops for watching movies -- Despicable Me 2 and Frozen have been watched multiple times each.  We have iPads for playing games -- Minion Rush has been extremely popular.  And we have a Nintendo DS with tons of games.

Despite being in the car for nearly 10 hours now, the kids have been wonderful.  And not that I think that electronics are always the answer to keeping your kids pacified, but they have been such a blessing during this long, sad trip back north with the beach long behind us and school, a dirty house, and business ahead.

Thank God for electronics!

Lord, thank you for tools to keep the kids happy and satisfied during this boring, long trip home.  Thank you for keeping us safe so far in our travels.  In your name I pray, Amen.
