Where in the world are we?

Recently I realized many of you are wondering where we are and where we are heading. We have been a little vague regarding our current location. We arrived here in Texas just before Christmas – like literally JUST before. I had to shop for all of our presents the day before Christmas. Nice planning on […]

Wait, I didn’t send Christmas cards this year?

Since returning to Texas from the end of our trip I have had several things on my mind.  One of the things that has occupied my thoughts are Christmas cards. Yes, I just returned from a 10 week long trip and I am concerned by the fact I didn’t take the time to create and […]


When we visited NYC one thing I took note of were the police officers.  To say they work hard is a gross understatement.  This city is constant chaos.  People are always on the move and despite it’s rhythm, it takes a focused force to serve and protect.  I have a lot of respect for that […]

So I found this little beauty tonight…

  I have been trying to finish editing photos from our trip to Disney World.  I have been a little slow at the task.  We are nearing the end of our east coast trip.  In a few days we will be back in Texas.  Back in our “home” area.  We are still not sure what […]

After Disney…

Upon realizing we were leaving Walt Disney World for good, there were many tears shed. Despite our discussion earlier in the day (the one were I repeatedly said “hey guys, let’s get moving, this is our last day here, we want to make the most of our time here.”) the kids honestly thought we had […]

Changes in latitudes, changes in attitudes…

This trip has been amazing. Wonderful. Refreshing. Humbling. To say we have enjoyed it so far would be a huge understatement. We are, however, coming to the end of our east coast portion of the trip. Right now we are praying about where we will go after this. We would love to keep traveling. There […]

Wake up kids we are going to DISNEY!!!!

Yes, that is indeed how we told our kids that we were going to the Happiest Place on Earth. We woke them up, they opened gifts that told them the news. At 5am. They were a little tired. Perhaps they may have been more excited had it not been so early. Oh well, I wanted […]

Yup, I’m a little behind….

psssst.  We have been busy.  Can you tell?  Havin’ fun..playing…exploring a new “World.”  We’ll be back soon with pictures. A lot of pictures.  Until then have a “magical” day.


Does anyone remember this video? We came to you, our friends and family, and asked that you help serve the homeless community of Nashville by donating socks.  We could have purchased socks ourselves and taken them there, but wanted to show the kids what it was like to reach out and share a need with […]

Time in the Mountains – Shenandoah

We knew we’d need a mountain retreat after visiting the cities, so we planned a trip to the Great Smokey Mountains. We started with the Shenandoah Mountains in Virginia. Some friends of ours from Washington told us about a quaint place along the way called the Apple House.  It was considered a must visit.  How […]
