About Me

"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp. I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."

Here is a collection of photos from Nebraska. Some are from the ranch but some are just from the surrounding country side. We have lots of turtles, most are quite a bit bigger then the picture here. The country here has lots of trees, mixed with some sand hill type desert with cactus. It really is a different bit of country out here! There is always something interesting to see on a drive. Of course the most interesting things we miss getting on camera, because we forget it. We are at least a 30 minute drive to anywhere, including school, church and shopping. But we love it and it is everything we wanted.

I've always dreamed of living in a place like that. Oh how wonderful! I am happy you are enjoying Nebraska so much. I don't know when we could ever make it to visit, but we certainly will if ever we can! Congratulations on all your fabulous findings on your adventure!!
