I'm leaving shortly, driving to SeaTac, catching a flight to MSP, spending a week with Mom and Dad and my sis Rebecca, and driving to Iowa for a few days with all of the above. The Lord willing, I should add, knowing how quickly plans can change. For example, today somebody from this house was driving to Halsey and started passing a combine and didn't realize a large truck was trying to pass both of them. All ended well, praise God.

Quote of the Day:
"I knew you were leaving today, but I forgot today was the day you were leaving."


  1. You can always swing by my home in Iowa, that is if you care to do a few obstacle courses amongst the toys and clothes. We do have a guest room. :) The boys actually cleaned it up yesterday.

  2. Karen Layman9/09/2008 8:41 PM could come to the retreat couldn't you? It is the 18th and 19th!! Seriously....wouldn't it be fun for you to come??!!

  3. Just found your blog and am delighted! We returned from vacation today during which I read Ordinary Days. I gleaned so much, related so much (we have 8 children), and laughed a lot, too.

    So thrilled to see you have another book! Thanks for sharing your gift.
