I moved here from NC in 8/1999. I miss it sometimes but it has changed alot. I met my husband while working the drive-thru at Lena State Bank. We built a log home, his dream home, his design and have 2 active boys, Tristen 5 and Bo 3.
This whole weekend at all four services of our church "Crossraods Community Church" we were entertained by the African Children's Choir and it was enjoyable to watch the choreography. I did take a video with my camera but am not sure if it worked or if I could figure out how to post it???
We were at this UKC (United Kennel Club) event yesterday in Elizabeth, IL. My stepdad is an avid coon hunter and their club hosted this event this year. They show dogs and at night go hunting coon. My mom modeling a t-shirt worn by many volunteers. Each shirt was personalized with the first name. Tristen and Bo had their own shirt too. Taking a break to play. Bo checking out a bluetick puppy for sale. My stepdad hunts blueticks and usually only has females for when they have their litter of pups. A bit of a view of the goings on.
We went up to Warren, IL to help push Buelingo heifer calves and bull calves thru a chute for them to be vaccinated and such. In waiting........... My husband is getting the next one ready. The veterinarians supplies. Big needles. After all that work we had some popsicles before we went home to do our own chores.
Our trip to buy a bull to bred to our heifers was way up to Marshfield, WI, a very long 4 hours up and back. Unfortunately the only picture i was able to get was this and we passed by a handful of houses designed by renowned architect, Frank Lloyd Wright and by a HUGE moose penned in the back of a yard and we passed by the entrance to "House on the Rock". It was an eyefull of a trip and all I have to show for, is this airplane. I missed the 1st MOPs meeting of the season too :(
Tristen and Bo on the motorcycles. By the looks of Bo's lips, he must be making the noise of a motorcycle. Daddy and the boys enjoying the "Scrambler". I hope Bo is enjoying, since you can't see his face. Exiting. T&B loved the ride!! Mommy and Bo riding the "Dragon" roller coaster, for a kid ride it really whips ya around. We also took home a funnel cake to eat at 10p.
For those of you who have been fooled by my pretending, here is our actual home. Hope your not disappointed too much. Compared to what we moved out of to live in this house, it would be like my pretend picture.
