This blog was created with the intent of keeping you in touch with our family. I am a secondary school teacher and an adjunct history instructor. The last 25 plus years of my life have been shared with my husband Randal. He works for an Electric Coop. We have one daughter, who graduated from Tech this year. We are amazed daily at how God works in our lives.
Summer is zooming by! Basically, I have 3 weeks left until the new school year starts. People ask what have you done this summer? To be honest….I don’t think a whole lot. It seems the first two weeks of July we were on the road a lot. One of those times, we took a small vacation to Ruidoso, New Mexico. We stayed 3 nights at the Inn of the Mountain Gods. Ashley and Randal played the course at the Inn. It is really a nice and beautiful course. Of course Ashley and I did some shopping in town! What could a trip be to Ruidoso without shopping in Midtown? A real treat we enjoyed was massages. Ashley, Nanna and I all splurged and each got a 55 minute massage. It was heaven!!!! Of course, no one can go to Ruidoso without eating at Casa Blanca. We ate there twice. Watch out for the green chilies. They were very hot! One of the favorite parts of vacation was the horse races. Every time we go to Ruidoso, we seem to miss the horse races, but this time they were there and we were there. It was a blast! I think I can do better at the races, then on the slots. Enjoy summer it is fleeting!
1. Gathering around the table to eat as a family 2. Playing card games and etc. 3. Family albums (especially old ones) 4. Laughing so hard until you cry or until someone starts snorting, which makes you laugh even harder. 5. Reminiscing about the past. It usually means dragging up some old story that probably needs to be kept in the past. 6. Watching movies and eating popcorn together. 7. Family vacations are the best. 8. Birthday dinners and etc. 9. Giant get togethers with my family. 10. The fact that I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt and belong to my family.
