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.

Way to go kids!!!

Three days and counting... before we leave for Ethiopia. Can you believe it??? Our life is so completely busy it would truly make "your head spin". In the midst of all the last minute details, shopping, paperwork and just getting people here to help us, our kids had their Lego Mindstorm competition today.

If you are unfamiliar with Lego Mindstorm, it is a two part competition. The first part the kids had to create a Lego robot using a special computerized "brain" which has to perform certain "tasks" on a special playing field (you get points for doing different things). The second part of the competition is the research project, where the kids have to present a project on a certain topic. Crazy enough as it might sound...our team won first place in the scoring part of the robot competition and we have now been invited to compete in the state level of the competition.

Way to go kids!!!

  1. That's great. I would like to do a lego club with my daughter or sign her up for one. Maybe next year we will...
    Congrats on going to Ethiopia. I will be praying for you and your family.
    God bless.
