August 2017

August...what does it mean to you? Back to school? Fair time? Harvest and canning? All of that comes to mind for me... along with my anniversary. This year my husband, Greg, and I will be married 34 years!
    That sounds like such a long time...for some it is. For feels like it's only been a few years, but then I look in the mirror and realize that time has past.
    So much has happened in those flying 34 years. We have six children and 10 grand kids. We have moved twelve times, owned thirteen different vehicles. We owned three different homes along with the rentals in the beginning. Greg has supported us with different jobs. I taught music for 30 years and preschool for thirteen. We homeschooled for nineteen years.
     We raised two Eagle scouts. four tennis players, three cross country runners, two football players, one wrestler, four musicians, three  college students ( and two more coming up.) We raised a cowboy and rancher, a musician and mother, a business manager and corrections officer, a carpet layer, a construction worker, a well driller, two missionaries, and a pro tennis coach.
     Life has been good to us. We have had our trials....cancer came and left, along with other have changed, but here we are, still married...still raising our family.
      We are together forever. We are here to stay!
