We are South!

Well, we are as south as we are going to get! Arrived yesterday and noticed that we did not have to wear our heavy winter jackets!!! We are enjoying an 12 C (54 F) this morning, not sure what the high will be.
Rwanda is in the middle of their day with a 30 C (86 F) - oh I'm missing it but it is nice to have a bit of coolness!

Surprised Keelyn and Kiersten! That was such fun!!! (It is so heart warming to be recognized by your grandchildren!) We are so glad to be here and get another chance to visit our family in Alabama.
We had a good, safe trip down, 3 - 10 hour days of driving. The GPS is a wonderful tool, but ours doesn't seem to know the difference between 'Quick' and 'Major', or else I don't. We had a wonderful scenic route the last few miles, which wasn't bad, just not quick or on major roads (that I would call major roads). And the last few miles you always want to go quicker! We never got lost and we tried to follow the directions - good thing for 'recalculations' option!
Mostly cloudy and rainy on the way down. The snow, little that is around, disappeared about half way down if I'm right! It seemed like it went a lot longer than I thought it would. There didn't seem to be much more than what Saskatchewan had when we left there.
The green grass started to show for sure by Tennessee, and leaves on the trees too!

Going to go enjoy a bowl of 'Grits', then we will attend church with Kirk and Candace!
