First off, I’d like to offer this cute photo for Project Look Through. Dianne and Dawn have inspired me to join in the fun (with what little time I have left before our trip). This was what I saw when I looked through a family member’s windshield the other day. I had to take a picture of it. Maybe I can send in a few more “look through” shots while on our big trip? We’ll see!
SPRITTIBEE’S HEARTLAND-AMERICA ROADTRIP
I thought I would make this post the Dashboard for our trip. Here is where I’m keeping our list of things to get done and a place to refer to with all our updates. Hopefully if you have been to Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio or Michigan, it will also be a place where you can leave some comments about places that MUST be seen along the way. I’m also accepting emails to this affect – if you don’t want to post it for the world, that is.

I’ll be having a few blog buddies step in to update you on our trip. Here are the ones who have agreed to post so far…
I’ll be updating this post as we check off our list. If you have something to say, please drop a note in the comments box! If you are the praying type – pray for some sanity, peace, wisdom, and mad efficiency to be sent my way! Hopefully I’ll be back in tomorrow! We are leaving Thursday.
