Mom, Jake and I made the drive from Knoxville to Michigan by the skin of our teeth. Jake made it within seven miles of Port Hope before he just couldn't take it anymore, so that was a pretty successful trip. Throughout the trip he would say "Mommy, I need something!" He never knew what he needed but I'm thinking he just needed to be out of the car. I feel us, buddy. At one point we were stopped for about thirty minutes and Jake got to climb around in the car. He was elated to be out of his seat that he willingly took pictures with me, a definite first! At dinner we faced off in a game of Checkers. Jake's strategy was um, unique, but considering I always lose, what do I know?
