The kids and I have had a bit of stressful week, but we found just what the doctor ordered...Vacation PaPa's House.

There is something about "going home", hanging with my Dad, and losing cell service that replenishes my strength.

We headed out to Bollinger County, Mo mid-morning this morning; just in time to grab some Subway for lunch and hit the gravel road to PaPa's House.  We surprised PaPa today, which made this visit more exciting than ever.   The kids packed their special bags with "new" things that they were dying to show PaPa, one being their new "dog tags" that they were recently given.   PaPa is a US Army Veteran so they spent some time comparing dog tags and "talking Army".


After all the Army talk, we all loaded up and hit the road for an adventurous afternoon of driving tractors, picking grapes, gathering walnuts, building fence, and spending time with PaPa and Uncle Ben!   What a Day....this Momma is exhausted!

Born a Female, Made a Feminist

Sunday over lunch I told my family “I am a feminist” and they laughed at me.   As I sat there, I remembered we have forgotten what a true fe...
