This past weekend was a busy one in our household. Packed with a homecoming, a celebration, working with heavy equipment, a little bit of pruning, a night outdoors and a goodbye.
At the end of all of our comings and goings, it turns out the weekend was all to brief…
Our weekend began on Friday night when we all loaded up into the car & truck (one vehicle doesn’t fit us all), and headed out to the airport to pick up our daughter, Rachele, who was flying in from Mississippi after finishing up her combat school.
The past couple of weeks have been quite busy with helping others with their landscapes, writing articles, keeping up with the kids, throwing a baby shower and my first television appearance thrown in to boot.
You would think that all of that would be enough to keep me preoccupied. But, there was something else going on during those two weeks that made me very happy.
Some of you may have been following along as I have updated you on my daughter, Rachele’s, journey as she joined the Navy.

Homesickness, discouragement were the subjects of our earlier correspondence. However, as time passed, we started to see her resolve to finish and do her best.
Did I mention that it was our 27th anniversary on that day? I couldn’t think of a better way to spend it.
