We were headed home.... and then we went swimming!

We were due to leave Texas today, but literally as Kevin was loading the van, the van battery died as well as the air in the tire, it was gone, so back and forth to the car places Kevin and Chris went, and by 2 o'clock it was evident we were not only staying in San Antonio another night but we went swimming with the Pearsons for the afternoon! While we were at the pool however, the newspaper guy on base, asked if he could photograph all of team cooper (sans me, i wasn't in the water) he took a photograph of all 7 and told us they would be in the paper, Aunt Cori has promised to get us quite a few copies!

Well at least the van had problems before you got on the road and not during the road trip! And what kid would argue against swmimming over a long car ride! Be sure to post pics of the base paper!

See Jody-that is why you were supposed to stay there the extra day---so your family could be in the paper! That is so neat. Hope you can get on the road soon though.
