What I did over my summer vacation…

School is starting up again.  Some of the kids returned to school this past week, some will go back on Monday.  The schools in the area have been busy with lawns being mowed and more cars in the parking lots and signs signaling the beginning of the school year.  I know that in several ofContinue reading “What I did over my summer vacation…”

Taking a Trip Back in Time…

We transferred back to the states in spring of 1979 from Japan.  We had lived there three years and it was one of the best places we had lived.  We met friends, we started our family, we became Christians there, and we grew up there.  I call those years my ‘college years’ as I neverContinue reading “Taking a Trip Back in Time…”

Uncovering…

I have not shared pictures of our home.  I had wanted to wait until it was completed and looked like a spread in a home and garden magazine.  I don’t think that will happen in the near future. Everyone talks about the joys of home ownership and most of the time it is talked aboutContinue reading “Uncovering…”

Now, comes the difficult part,  coming up with the next post. I have thought about this today and have come toContinue reading “Comparisons…”

Honestly….

Spoiler alert: This is a long post filled with thoughts I have decided to share with the world. The title to this post was going to be different from what it is.  I was going to title it Little Miss Life Lesson.  In truth, this post will be because of Little Miss.  She is openContinue reading “Honestly….”

Faithful Friends…

When I was in the fourth grade we were separated into groups for a science project.  I think the groups were only groups of two, and we were given an assignment and a time allotment to do the task.  The name of our project was “The effects of different environments on snails.”   A real thrillingContinue reading “Faithful Friends…”

Dinner with Friends…

This evening I was invited to have dinner with a couple of friends.  They wanted to have one more meal together while we were all still in the same town.  I was treated to a lovely meal downtown and I feel special because of their caring. We are getting closer to moving.  I have packedContinue reading “Dinner with Friends…”

Happy St Patrick’s Day!

This is always a fun day.  I have never gone out and celebrated the day with a bar crawl or anything, but it is still a great day. I was born into an Irish family.  Our family really hasn’t been in America that long.  I love that fact.  We were raised to be proud ofContinue reading “Happy St Patrick’s Day!”
