We were able to get someone to look at the truck Saturday afternoon and I think we were on the road by 3:00. Turns out there was nothing wrong with the truck. It actually had to much transmission fluid in it! Sigh...
We were not on the road for an hour when we saw something flying back at us... It was coming from the camper. We called Mark and had him pull over. One of the tires was loosing tread! Mark and Joey changed the tire and put on the spare. We stopped for the night somewhere around Virginia.
The next morning we woke up early, had breakfast, and got on the road. Things were going well but I was a wreck! I was so worried we would loose another tire on the camper and not have a spare to use or worse..... We would get into an accident. Rain started to fall and it was coming down hard! Our caravan of vehicles had 9 children and 5 adults traveling and I was anxious that an accident would happen. I have never prayed so hard! One hour from our Cookeville exit we saw tread flying again! The camper was loosing another tire. We called Mark and he decided to drive it anyways because the hotel that my sister and brother in law were staying at was right off the exit. He was able to get the camper into the hotel parking lot! We made it!
We still had to worry about getting the camper into our driveway which is a bit steep.... I left that in Joey and Marks hands! They got it in the driveway and the drama was finally over! Now, all we had to do was unpack and get settled.
On the first day in our new home we had friends from Nashville come over and help us unload the truck. Not only did they help us unload the truck but they brought dinner! What a blessing they were!
So here we are. A month has flown by and it still feels surreal to be here. We are settling in and waiting for the arrival of Cristian and his family on Thursday. We are thankful for all that the Lord has provided and for his hand of protection.
