About Me

My photo
Married twenty-three years to my wonderful husband and best friend. We have 3 "home-grown" kids, 1 hand-picked by God from Africa and 1 very hyper-active dog. Our life is blessed. We are a close knit family with strong Christian beliefs. And just recently we have bought ourselves a farm. Do we know what we are doing? Nope. Come along with us on our journey…you might have a great laugh or two.

These are the moments I never want to forget...


Maybe it was the floor cleaner talking (I'd been mopping our wood floors), or maybe it was the fact that we had been couped up in the house all day because it was pouring down rain...but the look on my kids faces was priceless. Here's how it went...

"Hey kids...I've got a crazy idea." "What?" "How would you like to go outside and play in the rain?" There was no sound for about two seconds (an amazing feat in our house) and then there was a hoopin' and hollerin' you would not have believed.

So we grabbed our ponchos from our camping gear and put on our swim shoes and out we tromped through the rain (it was raining so hard that even the dog didn't want to come). The creek behind our house had overflowed and we went wading in that as well as every other puddle we could find. In the end we ended up completely soaked, tired and made a memory to last a lifetime.

These are the moments I never want to forget...

  1. Oh, I'm sorry I missed this one! Maybe it will rain the next time I come...

    Love and miss you,
    Mom
