We’re home. It was very hard to leave Ross, but today he is on his way to the Navy’s submarine training base in Goose Creek, South Carolina. I should be hearing from him within the next day or two with his new address so I can send him his cell phone! “A school” isn’t boot camp. He can have his cell phone. And cookies!



Everybody’s fine here–and growing! The babies are getting frisky!

P.S. I’ll get back up to speed around here tomorrow, I promise!

    You just take your time Momma – I think you have some cookies to make. We’ll be patient. [And the goat-lings are adorable. Yay Clover!]

    Take care.

    PS – I realize goat-lings is not a word, but? I don’t have goats and they looking like goat-lings to me. Besides I didn’t know what they were called. Kids?

    Thing 1 and Thing 2 are sssssoooo cute! Take your time, S., we will still be here. You probably need a little time to transition after all the driving and emotional events.

    What great photos! The green grass is so lush and the chickens are so beautiful. Their red combs and feather patterns are so amazing. I do believe in the second photo that new little blue eyes is looking straight at you like Momma for a COOKIE!

    Rest up…we’ll all be here when you’re ready! My son’s graduation in Goose Creek began my love affair with Charleston! What a grand old city that is. Carriage rides, street markets, rainbow houses and GHOST WALKS…oh yeah, and Palmetto bugs or as they are known there, Carolina skateboards…I just call them BIG ARSE COCKROACHES!!! lol :dancingmonster:

    Many, many moons ago, I went to boot camp graduation in Waukegan, Illinois (the graduation was outside though). I lived in Goose Creek for about 1 1/2 years too but we left in 1987. Very pretty area. You’ll have to visit the old, open, slave market in downtown Charleston – the vendors sell all kinds of things. And the Palmetto bugs ARE huge – you can throw a saddle on some of them.

    Welcome Home!
    It’s always great to get away but it’s so wonderful to be back home!
    Take your time getting back to work; that was a whirlwind trip.

    Even though it was hard to leave Ross, I bet it is fantastic to be home with all your familiar surroundings!
    Looks like all the fur and feathered babies did well in your absence (good caretaker while you were gone) I’m sure they missed you lots too!
    Get rested up, make cookies, relax, we’ll be here…

    Welcome home, Suzanne. Glad everyone made it in one piece. The babies are sooooo cute and Clover looks like a good mommy. Ross will have it a little easier now. He’ll be looking forward to receiving his cell phone… and COOKIES! :) We’ll be here when you get settled in again.

    Welcome home. When Ross has time, ask him to enroll at Soldiers Angels: http://soldiersangels.org/join-or-adopt.html I’m a volunteer on the Soldiers Angels Baking Team. I send letters and care packages to “my troops” every month. This is a great morale booster for our men/women in uniform!

    Sailor is a great name! But what would you call the other one? It should be similiar/related type of name….hmmmm. You did a great job of keeping us posted while you were gone, and thank you for sharing it with us! You have a wonderful life and family.

    The babies are so adorable–can understand why you like to hold them. My daughter was in the Navy several years ago and I know she was ready for some home made goodies by the time she got out of boot camp! Thanks again for sharing all the wonderful pictures and the great recipes–everything we have tried has been enjoyed greatly!

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
