home again

We are back from our whirlwind tour of the South-Eastern United States. The boys endured the long road trip with minimal screaming and fighting in the backseat. Jay and I endured the long road trip with minimal screaming and fighting in the front seat. Seriously, the trip was beautiful and we had a great time. The Wigington Farm in SC was so much fun and just breathtaking. The farm is home to 250 beef cattle, a few horses, some dogs and the Wigington Family, which has owned the farm land for over 100 years. Thanks for taking care of us and making us part of your family. After two nights at the farm, we all drove up to Virginia for the two-day Family Conference. It was very inspiring and well-attended. Doug Phillips was especially motivating with his talk on the role of the father today. Very convicting! We spent the morning grooming our garden, adding more mulch, staking the tomatoes, peas and cucumbers. After only a week, we have fruit growing, there are baby watermelons, yellow squash, and corn too! It's so exciting to watch it all grow and the boys are loving it!

Nancy,
Looking good, Nancy! We hope to get a garden going before too long..albeit in clay pots with hot peppers but hey, anything will do! We would like to see about getting a sweet mango tree too! (Then we can enjoy the mangoes from our own backyard.) Enjoy the fruits of your labor!
