Meet Me In St. Louis (I Dare You)

My father, in fits of civic pride, loves to send me articles about the various stellar accomplishments of his current hometown, St. Louis, MO. One week, I'll receive an article declaring St. Louis to be "The Most Dangerous City in America." The next will find me reading a forwarded study proving that St. Louis has the highest rates of obesity in our nation. Yet another week brings the ringing declaration that St. Louis leads the U.S.A. in gonorrhea infection. Needless to say, my dad is too overwhelmed with self-esteem brought by actually living in the city herself to add much more by way of comment to these reports. They speak for themselves.

So, off Sadie and I fly tomorrow for a week in the Gateway City.

Please pray for us.

Is he doing the driving? St. Louis has got to be one of the worst cities for driving in.
You're going to be so close - yet so far! Wish we were heading out that way, but life has us firmly stuck here in good ol' TN right now.
I wish you and the bug safe and happy travels. I'll be praying for you!

Hope you're back safely now, Justine. Traveling with kids can be so much fun, especially the trip to grandparents' house! God bless!

Drop a line (or more) letting us know how the trip went. :-) I've missed reading your posts.

Don't be disquieted by the signs you see when you get off the plane at Lambert: "Abandon hope, all ye who enter here."
