We are back in Wilmington now to spend the last week before Micah begins orientation at GaTech. This drive from Atlanta was one of the worst by far. Before we even got to the interstate, the a/c stopped working. Then we drove through a crazy rain storm.

I'm trying to convince Micah that we should drive in the middle of the night on the return trip so it won't be so hot.
