A Texas Life in Cars

In honor of the Chevy Corvette I am driving to the Blissdom Conference in Dallas this week, I thought I would share a few automotive memories from my Texas past… The first memory of a car I have was the time I smashed my forehead on the dash of a 1970 Buick Estate Wagon that […]

We bring you news from the break in our regular program… Our crazy haze of end-of-school wrap up before spring break turned in to a world of busy fun the past few days. We had some friends who live quite a few hours away stop in for three days of fun in the sun. Our […]

I live in my car. I can drive figure-eight spaghetti-bowl asphalt ribbons around the proverbial soccer mom. Trust me. Texas sized BIG. Just like my gas bill each month. Think SUV, six-people deep… plus backpacks full of heavy books and fossilized french fries under every seat. So, I mentioned a while back that I was trying out […]

The post with these photos is not telling any sort of story… just mental drool today, sorry. However… I thought I would share the pictures to give me something fun to do on vacation. Everyone seems to have instantly turned in to a vegetable. I can’t stand the sound of snoring or Star Wars video […]

I’m finally getting the photos from the ‘longest field trip’ we took in April up. There’s just no excuse other than life itself for how behind I am. I can’t believe it has been this long since we drove up to Michigan. Seems like yesterday. It is nice having a ton of photos to remember […]

There’s nothing like meeting up with fellow Christians who are blessed with the gift of hospitality. Even right on the front porch, there is evidence that this family is serving the Lord. When Jacque found out I was going to be in her neck of the woods on my cross-country trip, she wouldn’t hear of […]
