January 12, 2008 – Trip Redux – 6 Year Old Style

Martin kept a journal during the trip to Arizona, and I am going to post his thoughts here (to the best of my ability, as the handwriting is that of a six-year-old, often times writing in a vehicle or in bed)! You are lucky that I decided to post Martin’s rather than Claire’s 60 pages of notes from the trip.

I can’t wait to go to Arizona.  Going to Arizona. A book.
