“but it rings and I rise”
Last week was vacation bible school for me and I think I’m just about to recuperate! It’s always fun but I’m usually tired by the end of the week. Most days I might get up around sixish but I don’t have to get out somewhere every morning. [...]

Last week Ava Clair had her pre-k graduation and today she turns five! Where does the time go? We didn’t get to be there for the event but my DIL shared some pictures on facebook so I snagged some to use!
She was very excited [...]

When my kids were little they belonged to something called The Best Book Club Ever; every month we got quite a few of these square paperback books. They loved them getting them and read them often at bedtime. Hubby and I read our fair share of them out loud too. [...]

Late last week I had a visit from a sweet little three year old! Her daddy (my son in law) was out of town working so my daughter and I decided at the last minute that Katelyn could come visit me for a few days. She’d been asking her mom to [...]

We haven’t seen our kids in Texas since Thanksgiving. I’m missing them terribly so I was excited last week when my daughter in law shared some pictures on facebook. She had signed Ava Clair up for dance classes and oh what fun I bet she’ll have. She’s such a little girlie [...]

Went to take my son last week for his laser eye surgery…..they let hubby go in to watch it all happen and he found to be interesting. Ewww, is all I can say to that, I couldn’t have done it! They said everything went ok. He slept most [...]

My youngest son David has been wearing contacts since he was a teenager. A few years ago he developed a problem with his eyes and hasn’t been able to wear contacts; giant papillary conjunctivitis, an allergic reaction to the lens. It’s very annoying to him and he’s wanted [...]

It was so easy having daughter Elizabeth home for the summer and fall. She took a class here, then finished up 2 reading hours she had left at Alabama and subbed at our school when she could. She kept me company while hubby worked long hours, made coffee every morning and [...]

It has been a busy week here for me….what about for you? Shopping and decorating are on the list now. Hubby got a cast on his arm/wrist and has had it x-rayed again to make sure it’s still in line (it is). It has to stay on at least 3 more weeks; [...]

If it was me, I would be crying because I don’t like critters of any sort! But Katelyn doesn’t seem to mind them, in fact she seems to love playing with them. I’ve not quite understood this interest she has…we’ve dug up worms for her, I’ve seen her chase bugs around [...]

This weekend our kids/grandkids in Texas sent us some pictures from their Halloween fun! The little ones looked like they had a good time.
There was Jack Sparrow………..savvy?

A pretty Dorothy……there’s no place like home.

And a sweet baby owl!

I wonder if he’s saying…… “Stop blowing holes in my ship!”

I guess you better not mess with Captain [...]
