There are lots of different little steps we are taking while planning our big road trip. Some are more important than others, but they all require foresight.

Today, I put aside a roll of change in anticipation of the many pressed penny machines I’m sure we’ll come across. Two quarters and a penny, two quarters and a penny, right in a stack. Just enough for the cheap, kitschy souvenirs that I love.

Working 12 to 5

I periodically staff this little ceramics shop downtown. This afternoon I worked and the girls came with me. They were enthusiastic, then bored, then helpful, then independent and adventurous, and then back to bored again. It was a great experience for them, both the learning about how shops are run and practicing how to manage your own boredom!
