One of the things I really appreciate about the AWANA Truth and Training club at our church is the opportunity to do special things with our kids. My husband is not into camping at all, but when it’s all organized and all he has to do is go, it’s a great time with his little… [continue reading]
Plant some trees!
My husband is obsessed with planting trees. He just can’t get enough. I wish I could say that we have reaped the benefits of his trees. We would if we didn’t keep moving. I like to imagine all the children playing in the shade of our trees, the squirrels playing peek-a-boo with the puppies, and… [continue reading]

Would Vacation Be Complete without a Trip to the ER?
Our Family Vacation to Houston Part 16 Start at the beginning.

Finally, he said he was in… [continue reading]
Galveston Here We Come!
Our Family Vacation to Houston Part 9 Start at the beginning. Day four of our trip began with packing everything back up and heading to the Galveston area.

The Power of Suggestion
My husband fell playing basketball the other night and ended up with a stiff neck. I handed him some meds and an ice pack and wished him to feel better in the morning. Would you believe I woke up with a stiff neck the next morning? In spite of the fact that I had a… [continue reading]
