A list …

Saw this on my friends Leslie and Fran’s blogs … thought that it could be fun.   You copy and paste the list on your blog, and then bold the things that you have done. I made the items red and then commented on some of them. 1. Started your own blog – you are … Continue reading


Why. Toddlers are notorious for asking the question “why?”  Kids love asking questions and finding out answers to, well, just about everything. Ever known a kid like that? I’m 33 years old and I’m sure I’ve asked the question “why?” my fair share of times.  Times when I have wondered WHY schedules were changed, something … Continue reading

Monday is for … Missions … and MLK Jr.

MLK Jr. Today is the last day of Winter Break for us here at SEMO.  Students are back in town, traffic is picking back up, and classes resume in the morning.  The “break” has been a great time of refreshing for me and I’m excited for all that the upcoming semester has for us.  Thankful … Continue reading

It’s a New Year!

Well, it’s been ages since I’ve REALLY posted on here, and I make no promises that I can keep up with this on a very regular basis.  SO much has happened in the last year, there is no good way to try to summarize it all, so I’ll hit the highlights: In May I completed … Continue reading


Ha ha.  Seeing how it has been about 15 days since my last post, my “getting back into a regular schedule” didn’t work out too well!

Ho Ho’s or Swiss Cake Rolls

Today, we put to rest the age old question of which was better . . . Ho Ho’s or Swiss Cake Rolls … It had been a debated topic in the house the first few weeks. So, today on our trip to Wal-Mart we bought a box of each and had a blind taste test … Continue reading

life in community …

Well, it’s becoming increasingly evident that I’m not going to have a lot of “down time” this summer. I expected as much, but have come to learn it as reality over the last few days.
