Road Trips

As you might imagine with three boys, road trips are quite an adventure. This year for Fall Break we logged quite a few hours in the ol' minivan trying to catch up on some grandparent time. All the grandparents were making noise about us not having been to see them in a while, so we loaded up the fam and headed out. We managed to see all the grandparents and even made a side trip to catch a glimpse of our newest niece, Sophia. I'm not sure how many hours were spent in the van... but we counted at least ten counties we passed through on Friday alone. I was reminded again that we don't take 'vacations' anymore... we take 'trips.' And now, having this trip under our belt... I am quite ready for a vacation!

Jim Black! I found you through your comment on Amanda's blog! How come you haven't said hello?

Anyway, your boys are so cute! They're going to be heart breakers! Andy and David look so much like Celeste and Michael tends to favor you!

Glad to see you've jumped on the blogging bandwagon! Come "visit" me sometime! Tell Celeste hello!

Welcome to Jim's blog!

Thanks for visiting my blog... I hope you'll find it helpful, perhaps insightful or at least a little humorous. I hope to do several things through this blog... share pictures, thoughts, and funny stories... but also to converse back and forth about what we are reading in God's Word together. In preparing for Sunday's message each week, I am interested in hearing from you... what do YOU think about Sunday's text? What are your questions? Suggestions? Just click on the COMMENTS section and let's talk. I'll do my best to give you a "heads up" on upcoming lessons and I would greatly appreciate your thoughts. Thanks in advance!
