I'm here! Just catching up on your summer and fall. I can relate to so much of what you are saying, like in your last post about jumping in rain puddles in college. At least with young kids I can relive some of it, if I don't let the hectic details of life get me down.

Was at my Sister's church last weekend and I found out something about those glass walls behind the pulpit that I never knew! They open. They roll back all the way, I mean you could drive a truck through there. Actually my first thought was "They could have a car show in here" but then I remembered that it is a church and there is no reason to have a car show in church (there are no NASCAR fans reading this, right?). The occasion to have the glass walls rolled back was the 35th anniversary of the church and to announce that funds have been donated to the church to build a garden at the tree line and people will be able to place cremains (evidently that's what one's ashes are called after one is cremated...I think I'll just keep saying "their ashes") in the garden.

Oh, and my sister really wants a print of that view through her front door! It's beautiful!

Jen, it's so good to hear from you! And i'm glad you're enjoying your kids--i always thought you'd be a fun mom--but you're right about the "hectic details of life"--good way to put that, for sure. That speaks LOUDLY to me! Well said.

Lea Ann, SO COOL about those windows at the church! who woulda thought?? (And who but you would have thought about having a car show in there! LOL Altho, Redwood Chapel here in CV has a car show in their parking lot every year...)

Also thank you for the word lesson--i did not know to call a person's ashes "cremains", even though that is a darn cool word, if you think about it... AND--putting "cremains" in the garden would be a great way to put people together who had issues with each other--"Yep, Aunt Gladys is out there in the garden aaaall mixed up with cousin Florence who she wouldn't speak to for the last 25 years..." Evil? Perhaps. Justice? Maybe. ;-)
