Working on a bus till the wee hours in the morning with your brothers and sisters, you really get to spend some quality time deepening those ever important sibling relationships. But how well do you know my brothers and sisters?
Which one of my siblings do you think:
-called a utility knife a “cutter cutter thing”
-touched both the hot and neutral electrical connections in the breaker box at the same time, calmly stepped back and said, “ ouch, that kind of hurt”
-was our human dinner bell (ok, so maybe this one is to easy)
So how well do you know my sibling? Who and why, do you think did what?

When it comes to food I will be the first to admit, with a mom and four sisters that can cook really well, and more learning, I am spoiled! Here recently they themed a restaurant that we have been at up in Michigan called, Taboo. Now Taboo serves wonderful lamb, but we didn't have any lamb so instead they used one of my favorite meats, cow tongue. (the meat in the center of the platter) So I come home from work and wonder what's for supper, lift up the lid on the pot and there is a cow tongue boiling around in the pot. That's a little different, but if you can get past the mental block, cow tongue is one of the best parts of the cow. I rate it up there with the steaks. It's very tender and tasty!

Happy New Year! As in thinking of 2007, in one word or phrase, How would you sum up the year? What is the top ten memories of the last year? And what has the Lord taught you in the past year?
For me to sum up the year: Practical learning, and rubber meets the road. Practical learning: having gone out to Wyoming and living some on my own, I had to learn how to do laundry, make my own lunches…ect (yes I was spoiled up with wonderful sisters who did all that for me) Rubber meets the road: I also have had a great opportunity this year for learning how to apply my convictions and wisdom from God’s word to real life situations.
The top ten memories of ‘07. (It was hard to limit it to only ten!)
1.The Bus wreck
2.Dad Buying a C-150 and flying it back from VA
3.Surprising my twin when I came back from Wyoming, and helping him drive his car back from Philadelphia.
4.NCHEA Kids conference
5.Kids Camp up in North Dakota
6. Wissmann Ent. Christmas trip
7. Silver Dollar City this spring
8.Leaving for Wyoming
9.Catching the Stingray in Florida
10.Spending time with Caleb in California
Over the last year the Lord has taught me a lot of things. But if I were to sum it up I would say it would have to be, simply trust the Lord for EVERYTHING, He knows what He is doing and that’s all I need to know.

So whats down the road for '08?

Only the Lord knows!

And that is all I need to know!
