Adventure Week Away!

The Castle in the middle of the building

So, where have I been for the last month? I've been working my proverbial tail end off...for the coolest summer event ever! Fellowship Church has a huge summer event called Adventure Week and it's basically VBS on steroids....for FOUR weeks! We spent all of last week building up the preschool and children's areas into different environments (space, aquarium, city scape, sports, etc). The late nights are well worth it when you see the kid's faces as they enter the building and see it transformed from what it was the week before.
Each night the kids rotate through some really cool activites and then see a theatrical production at the end of the evening. My hubby is playing the bad guy and having a blast. I have been watching the show each night to see him and it's been so much fun!

Katie's back

I know this probably isn't too significant to a lot of people, but one of my favorite authors (Robin Jones Gunn) is going to be writing a new series about one of her characters named Katie Weldon. KW was in the Christy Miller series for teens and I loved the books (even though I read them past the teen years - and still read them from time to time now). I was left wondering what ever happened to Katie...and now we will find out. The downside is that the books won't be coming out until March 2008!! That's a long time...I guess if I waited this long...then what's another 9 months!

Good Bye to Sara

My hubby had to say good bye to his first (and only) car this weekend. He bought her 10 years ago and they traveled long roads together. He had to take her out for one last car wash on Thursday night. He came in with the hint of a tear in his eye and told me that they had had their last ride together. He did also mention that he was sad to get rid of the car because we had our first date in it. So sweet! He's getting my Camry and I'm getting the new car...So good bye to Sara and hello to the new Mazda CX-9!!!

Inaugural

Well, it has to be done...there has to be an inaugural post...and this is it. Everyone has one so maybe it's best to just get it over with!

I'm blogging (again) because I want to start writing again. Writing is an outlet for me and it's also a way to hone my writing skills. Yes, I write on a daily basis for work, but this is different writing.

Anyway, I'm wife to Ed and mom to K and friend to two four legged puppies - Scooter and Olive. Scooter is lovable and compliant. Olive is pesky, obnoxious, and sweet at times. I learn a lot of life when I take time to observe them.

So, now on with the business of real posts...
