Photos of our travels and stops along the way

Real Time

Life is certainly getting away from me these days and I’ll have lots to share in the days ahead. But for now I just wanted to check in and let you know that we have (sadly) left the Cabin, traveled to Columbus and are currently enjoying time with our two Ohio families. Since everyone is either in school or working we’ve been hanging out at the RV, catching up with life (and bills and emails and cleaning!). But our afternoons are full with family and fun.

We’re parked at the Union County Fairgrounds, and even though we’re here all by our lonesome, we have a lovely view –

(My Dad was big into Harness Racing, so every time one passes by it stirs all kinds of Dad-memories!)

Once I get the SOWER Newsletter wrapped up, I’m going to work on getting this blog caught up. You can check out the “So where are we now?” page to get a feel for just how chaotic our next couple of weeks will be!

Thanks for stopping by (even when it gets a little quiet over here!)

R&R&R

Although there is still more to share about our time in Montrose, right now I wanted to let all ya’all know that we have settled in at our most Fav-or-rite place on the planet – our family Cabin in Vermont.

And I have to tell you it feels pretty good to know that for the next two weeks (plus a day or two I hope) we will be soaking in all that is the Cabin. Oh, that will involve some yard work and some cleaning and some organizing, but it will also involve some family and some reading and some writing and some photography and some naps. And most mornings I’ll be waking up to the crackle of the fire and the grand aroma of fresh brewed coffee.

Things they are a’ changin’

Well, I guess it would be more accurate to say – things they are a ‘changin back.
Two years ago I shared how we had purchased this sweet house in Waco

It seemed weird, at the time, that even though we were in Pennsylvania we could buy a house in Texas. Ah, the magic of technology.
So today it didn’t seem quite so weird that even though we are (again!)in Pennsylvania we have been able to sell a house in Texas.

It was a bittersweet moment as we bid farewell (in a distant kind of way) to little bit of Waco, but I must confess that it was much nicer to see money arrive in our bank account rather than have it get sucked out. We wish the new owners much joy in the house, and pray they love it as much as we did!
But we’re not done with Waco. Not by a long shot. Even though the Parrott Ave (aka the PAZOO) Era is over, there is still lots to love about Waco. No, it’s not Chip and Joanna. It’s the friends we’ve made over the 10 years of our Waco connection and of course it’s these guys most of all –J&A&family
Yes, Waco – We’ll be baaaaack!!!

Fifteen Years

Fifteen Years of driving new roads and old roads, and willing to be surprised about what’s around the next corner.

We never could’ve imagined all the places God would take us when we set out on this “One Year, maybe Two” journey on August 1, 2004.
To Him be all the Praise and Glory!!
