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."

The next BIG step for the Family!

So, some of you know that Jeremy and I have been working very hard to buy us a house here in the area. We decided that we loved it here so much, we just had to stay. One day while exploring the local realtor's listings, I found it! Our dream house. Everything that we had on our "dream house" checklist! It was even at a price that little old poor us could afford! I worked my little tale off for 2 months, through issue after issue to buy the house. Well, as of October 22, we are official American home owners. It was worth every sleepless night and aggravating phone call to get here. It is a quaint 4 bedroom house built in 1920 on 21 acres in The Village of Page. Yes, we live in a village. It needs some big work, but we are just so excited that it is ours, we can hardly stand it. To make it even better, it is a mere 15 miles from O'Neill, where Weldon has to go to school and we go to church and shop... so MY driving time will go from 3 hours a day to 1 1/2 hours! Oh what I will do with all of that free time... Jeremy's new job is only 20 minutes away, the same distance from our old house. I have made a video tour for you to enjoy. Please ignore my annoying nasally voice (cold and flu season already)

It just got better and better as the movie progressed: the yard! the arbor! The sun room! A place for your music studio! Ooh I could not be more excited for you. Sounds like a great location to settle.
