Our Cast of Characters on the Mission:
|Little Flower and Mother Bear|
The Mother Bear (40-something year old mother of five, English teacher, living the rural dream) Really, that's enough, isn't it?
Naynuh (second half of the Wonder Twins or E-Squared. 15 year old female who will be the voice of reason). She's carrying a backpack full of stuff we don't need including various novels, photos, heel pads, and a map of someplace foreign she hopes to go one day.
Sister (16 year old who wandered into my house and never left who will laugh at us when we fall down in public) She's the only kid in the house with an international stamp in her passport. We're counting on her to be the blonde everywhere we go (since she's the only blonde). She may or may not be performing various stunts of daring on our adventures. She's like that when the mood strikes her.
|No. 1 Son|
The Number One Son (Only boy, namesake, heir apparent, 12 year old who will be the daredevil). We will photograph him doing numerous stupid, dangerous things on the road, because he's the only one idiotic enough to actually try them. You'll recognize me, because I'll be running around after him screaming helpful things like, "PUT THE HELMET ON! DON'T LEAP FROM THERE! NO YOU CAN'T BASE JUMP!"
Featuring an assorted cast of friends and neighbors
