There off!

Yesterday morning, we bade half of our household goodbye for a short 4 day vacation to visit relatives in north Arkansas. Dad, Dad's mother Faye, Caleb, Johanna & Jaden packed up and headed for a wonderful time of visiting with relatives whom we hadn't seen in 3 years. They arrived safe and sound yesterday evening, and had a great time at Dad's Uncle Paul's after their arrival.

The main reason for this trip, was to visit with our Great-grandma, Una Mae who is 93, and not in the best of health. She has declined lately, and so Dad thought that a short trip up would be a good thing. We all agreed with him! :)

Hopefully, those of us who staid here will accompany Grandpa & Grandma as they go up for Labor Day weekend later this month. We are looking forward to the beauty of that region of the country.

Praise the Lord for their safe travel and for the time they are enjoying getting to visit with relatives they've not seen in a while! I am so excited that Dad especially is taking a short break before church duties kick-in to full gear this fall.

I hope to post some more this week, but if not, please excuse the absence, I am ever so busy with a multitude of household related tasks.

On another note, we got close to 2 inches of rain yesterday afternoon & evening! It was such a blessing from Providence, because everything here has been baking in 100+ degree weather for the last 2 and a half weeks. Phoebe & I danced in the rain for a little bit; it felt so refreshing!

Blessings to all of our readers!
