Sunday Journal: Just Another Week in Paradise

Sunday Journal: Easter Weekend

Thursday afternoon we left for western Kentucky so the kids could participate in the Hymn Fest with their piano teacher. We returned home just a few hours ago. I'm tired. There is lightening and thunder outside. Just pictures for this... Continue Reading →
