"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."

Fall Wreath

Minnesota has some beautiful wild flowers this time of year! Here is a wreath I put together last night from some branches I found in the park and some wild flowers I found along our frontage road and dried in our garage.

Happy fall!

A week of firsts

Not only did Kamrie and Tyler have their first day of school this week, but Jacob got his first tooth and Kamrie rode her two wheeler bike for the first time! Wow! What a week! Here is a very short clip of the riding diva and her debut!
