My Little Runner Girl


I took this picture at track practice yesterday evening. Morgan, of course, is in track. Because she has to play everything. She’s the one in front, grabbing the baton. This coming week is college spring break here, by the way. (Not for high school–that’s in April.) So, Weston will be home! And Ross will be home sometime in April, I hope. He has his orders–he has been assigned to the USS Scranton in Norfolk, Virginia. (Yay! Only 7 hours away from mom.)

In other news, I’m all loaded up with supplies, ready for fencing, and it’s supposed to rain, which could also interfere with Buttercup’s arrival this weekend. Cross fingers for dry weather!

    Glad to hear the good news about your kids!

    Seriously… if he needs a home cooked meal he is always welcome here. We’re right next door in Chesapeake (hubby is stationed at Little Creek). And if you want to visit and need a place to stay you’re always welcome!

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....
