Day 23- Return

Day 23- Return 

The day that everyone has been dreading is finally here. Today is the day when we load the bus and head back to North Carolina. It’s crazy to think that this is the last blog. I think we can all agree that this has been the longest and shortest 23 days of our lives. This morning we woke up around 6:00 by Grant playing music. We gathered our things and began to pack the vehicles for the last time. We enjoyed mini doughnuts and bananas for breakfast as we journeyed our way back home. After making a few stops along the way (our last Walmart stop in Knoxville, TN) we finally made it back into North Carolina. Lunch consisted of a traditional peanut butter and jelly sandwiches served with animal crackers and pudding. Last clean up of vehicles are being done as we type and it’s all starting to sink in. 
  We are excited to spend these last few hours together, yet sad that we are passing by many familiar locations in NC; we are getting close to the end. Despite the amount of time we have left, the bonds in this family will last a lifetime, and we will never truly be apart. We love Teens Westward Bound and everything that this trip has given us. Thank you to everybody who has made it possible for us to travel this summer, especially the Deaton family.
