Well, well, well…I am sitting at a computer that works completely. Josh did a great thing and took the computer in to the APPLE store. They fixed a very expensive part of the computer that was still under warranty. Yipee. Today I took Ruby to school and Molly to her Art and Music classes. I always get to talk to […]
Well, it seems forever since I have been able to update the blog. Our internet service is working, but our computer ethernet port is defective. We cannot connect directly to the internet from our computer to the new modem our IP provider brought out today. SO, after a very frustrating week (really this has gone on at some level ever since we moved here 8 months ago), we now think we know what the main issue is. I hope it will be handled by then end of this week. We surely will see. In the meantime, I will share that Josh and I just got back from a Marriage Retreat weekend at Winshape Retreat in Rome, GA. It was phenomenal. I loved, loved, loved getting away with Josh. Our sitter did great; I was very confident that she could handle whatever may have happened here with the kids. And she did! The kids had a fun time. They played outside, watched Little House on the Prairie, and ate lots of food. Mack managed to wet his bed and himself each night. Oh well. It couldn’t have gone perfectly…..but it nearly did! Back to the retreat. Winshape is a beautiful, Christ-centered retreat facility. The workers there are Christians. The ladies who clean the rooms pray over the rooms and over the people who will be staying in them. The men who keep up the grounds also pray that the beauty of […]
Ruby is reading so well these days. She told me, “Reading is my favorite thing to do. It used to be coloring before I knew how to read. But now it is reading.” I am so proud of how much she reads. She reads signs on buildings. She reads her books, she reads my blog, she reads the cereal box, […]
We had a fun weekend. We stayed at home and watched it snow AGAIN. I don’t really have much good to say about the snow because when it snows, it is really cold, and I will take really warm rather than really cold any day. So, we let the kids have their Valentine gifts early since we’d be stuck in […]
During our trip to Augusta, the girls went to the dentist. Not just any dentist, I tell you….my childhood friend, the friend who watched out her window waving good bye to me as a drunk driver hit our car in her neighborhood, the friend who endured many, many violin sessions next to me as we shared a stand during several […]
I must start this post with some info about my dad. He loves the weather…watching the forecasts over and over, calling me to see if we are getting any kind of rough weather if The Weather Channel has called for it, and griping about it when the forecasters are dead wrong. The love for weather watching extends on out to […]
The kids each got a card from GG and Poppa Mac today. They were thrilled….and they got even more giddy when they opened it up and found some money inside! Thanks for thinking of us! The kids had fun opening their cards. We will be down soon to see everyone!
