1) Prayer--for safe travel, harmony among the kids and God's merciful blessings on the whole process
(we asked others for their prayers too, and we can tell the power of prayer is working!)
2) Double DVD players (I know this sounds sacreligious as number two after prayer, but they have been really helpful as well). Expensive but cheaper than a plane ticket and well worth it.
3) Frequent stops. Who knew rest areas could be so much fun? I'm thinking we should pack up some weekend and just head to a rest area, then head home. (On second thought...)
4) Worked a little harder to make homemade meals before we left and bought fun some treats too. Being able to eat our own food feels comforting, saves money, and allows us to spend more time relaxing at the rest areas while the boys run and expend gobs of energy. It is more peaceful than going to a restaurant where you are stressed about the "wiggliness" of your boys (plus that's way more expensive too, and I like my cooking better--most of the time) :)
