I have had trouble with some sort of malware issue blocking my access to the blog, but it is finally fixed! Yay!
I have so much to get out of my head and into writing! :)
I cannot believe how fast this year has flown by! Miss Erika is doing SO.MUCH.BETTER with her RA. She still has pain, but it isn't sapping her life away like it was late last year and earlier this year.
She has moved out on her own again, and is now a Senior in College AND works as a bank teller!
Sarah is doing well and taking a semester off of college, MAINLY, because they dropped her class.
She is working and writing, studying and is a great host for the college group and a girls group.
She is still dancing her heart out, and loves to sing and dance in the house. I love having her around.
Alli is such a good mommy. I'm really proud of how she has grown. Our little grandson, is quite adorable and full of smiles.
I don't hear from Anna very often. I'm sad about that.
It is been so fun watching the girls interact with college friends. Our family has expanded to a long list of young people who come over and hang out. I love them all. Some of them are child hood friends all grown up, some are college friends, some are room mates that come "home" for the weekend.
We took a recent trip to Albuquerque to visit Lilly and our son Chuck. Katie is living in Oregon now! We had so much fun on our little vacation! I think we sang our way from Wylie to Albuquerque and back! Our names are written on the tree on the mountain!
We were at the top overlooking the city. What a fantastic time!
I cannot believe that Lilly is in HIGH SCHOOL!
Life is definitely full and busy!

“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)
