You never know....

What life will throw out at you. Where life will send you. Who life will let you meet.

It's strange how one day you are little and the earliest memory you can remember is one of yourself being a little baby in a car seat, and the next you are almost middle aged, married and a mother to two children and one in heaven. (possibly more, unknown) Health issues you never anticipated on having when you was young. Ailments that hurt now when you get up and move around. That is what life can throw at you.

Life has sent me as far as Georgia in the southern states, as far as Tennessee to the west and, Virginia in the north.  Haven't been anywhere exotic, and really have no desires to go there. Montana would be a great place to visit and I have often wondered about what it would be like to live there. Pennsylvania, is another place I would love to visit, not live though.  There are so many places I would like to visit, most here in my own state. I am not hard to please as far as that goes…

Best Friends Wedding

Proverbs 18:22 “Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, And obtaineth favour of the LORD.”

On Saturday November 21, 2015 I was blessed to be a part of my best friends wedding. I have known her since third grade. 

As we grew up, I moved on before high school was over and got married myself. I had my family and lived away from my home town for many years, twelve to be exact.  A few years after moving back to my hometown I reconnected with Becky. We have been inseparable since.  I have been with her through the ups and the downs as she has for me. I have watched her survive through her divorce, and grow stronger. 

When she met Will, it was all of the sudden, but one I felt would be good for her.  I knew it would be just a matter of time. When she called me that Sunday and said are you sitting down, I knew there was something up. She told me how he had purposed to her and she had accepted it and the wedding was in a month.  Yep we threw this wedding together in a month. Hard to believe bu…

School is winding down for the Holidays

Well we have been having a blast so far with schooling. I haven't been pushing too hard, but we are making progress. My son is on a advanced level and he gets bored easily, so it is interesting to me to find things he is wanting to learn about.  Right now and as always, his interests still revolve around Dinosaurs, but I sneak other things in there too.  I have no clue as to when that will end, it's going on 4 yrs strong.  Learning comes so easy for him. So glad that it does.

With the holidays coming up we slow down on school work and go and learn in the field. We will be making several history field trips in the month of December. There is so many places just around here in my area, or with in a couple of hours away. With things being decorated for Christmas it make it even more interesting for me the mom.

A few of the places we will be visiting is:
Omni Grove Park INN for the annual Ginger Bread House competition displays.
The Thomas Wolfe Memorial for a tour of the writers …
