Description of Grandma's on the Go: A single mom and her passel of kids hit the road with guts and gusto by Carol Weishampel
No one would begrudge this overloaded mother the right to stay put. Yet, Carol Weishampel had an ironclad resolve to see the world--and take her motley brood with her! What makes a reasonably sane, single mom pack up her nine (yes, nine!) adopted kids-some severely physically and mentally challenged-for a 3,000-mile, three-week camping trip? A gutsy, determined Weishampel combines her love for travel with parenting a passel of children as she progresses from primitive, tent camping to a series of motor homes--while providing a loving nest for her young charges. Follow their adventures through 26 states, Canada, and Mexico as she and her kids dig for dinosaur bones, ride out storms, and explore God's creation. Under the tutelage of the resourceful Weishampel, even the inconveniences of flat tires and other roadside challenges become character builders for her fortunate young ones. Grandma's on the Go is crammed with ideas, trip-planning tips, and other helps for the novice camper, experienced RVer, or armchair traveler. When not on the road, author Carol V. Weishampel, a retired teacher with a doctorate in education, lives in Houston with her youngest son, Chris, two Shelties, and six cats . She Homeschools Chris and volunteers extensively.
