 Well, my family finally got home from California. You can click “More Photos” under the scrolling photos on the side bar to your bottom right to see a sampling of the trip. Everyone had a wonderful time and it sounded and looked like loads of fun according to the pictures and the rosy red sunburnt faces and bodies.

Rd Elementary where Jason attended when he was a little boy- how time flies!) While there, our car keys slipped off Darrell’s belt loop. We walked the path over and over, looking for those lost keys.  Finally, Darrell, Nora and I all stopped to pray. We asked God to take the blinders off our eyes and help us see those keys.

A final note: the next morning when Darrell went out to the car, he noticed one of Nora’s flip-flops on top of my car. He remembered putting them on the roof of the car while he was strapping Nora in her carseat at the playground. So, we got in the car and retraced our path of the previous evening and look what we found:


It did  have a tire tread mark on it- but other than that was in good shape! It was certainly a “seek and ye shall find” weekend in our household!!
