Monday morning meanderings. (Tuesday) Vol. 9

Colorado Springs, Colorado

We left South Jordan, Utah and our kids Sunday afternoon about 2pm and drove to Fruita, Colorado, about 250 miles.  We stayed at a nice Colorado State Park on the Colorado River.  We didn’t leave too early yesterday morning but arrived in the Springs in time for dinner at my dad’s, with my brother and his wife.  It was fun.

Item one.  It was hard to leave our Utah kids in one sense but in another I was tired out and needed a break!  I have said before I don’t know how young mothers do it, day after day.  Sloan and Sean our great boys, they behave well, are happy and have fun but they are go, go, go.  We spent Saturday and Sunday morning watching the boys while Traci and Brandon had some time away.  They haven’t had much of that recently and with the addition very soon of a new boy (get info here), they really needed the time.  They are doing well but really busy.  Brandon works long hours, Traci is the coordinator of the MOPs group at their church and they are finishing their basement among all the other things young families do.  In addition they are waiting for the word to head to Africa to pick up their new boy.  They are all so excited and anticipating this new addition.  Linda and I will return to Utah while they are in Ethiopia to help watch the boys.  Linda will go back in a couple of weeks to help Brandon with the boys while Traci goes to Florida for the MOPs convention.  Busy, busy, busy.  Even though they tire me out, I miss them already.

Item two. There are all kinds of websites that are nothing more than a list of other websites.  If there is a bigger collection of Christian websites any where I would like to know about it.  This site has thousands of “Christian” sites.  If you are looking for something you can probably find it here.

Item three. Should baggy pants be bagged?  If you live in Atlanta you might get the chance to vote on it.  Read about it here.

Item four.  How about those Mariners.  How they have hung around as long as they have is more a testement to how bad the American League is.  Last night may have been as big a game as they have had in 3 years and they laid an egg.  Anyone think they will still be around in a month?

Item five.  Now for the big news. We are back in the dog ownership business.  We decided some time ago that when we were in or near a big city we would look for a puppy.  After years of having Labs we knew we would not be able to have another one since we live and travel in our RV.  So we started the research on small dogs and settled on a couple we would look for.  Linda found some puppies in the Salt Lake area and while we were there Traci, Brandon and the boys joined Linda and I in going to look at some Cairn Terrier puppies (read about them here).  If you are looking for a puppy and are undecided about whether you should buy one or not do not take two young boys with you.  So, we are now owned by a little fellow named Jake.  The Cairn is described as a big dog in a little dog’s body and that discribes Jake.

    Jake is a bonnie wee laddie!! Looking forward to meeting him. MacHarley will have fun meeting him.

    As I told you on the phone we sold the motor home. We left the man that bought it all kinds of stuff. As I was ready to leave I checked the cupboards again and there was Jordan’s photo. It brought back so many memories. Now it is in our house. I know you will have a lot of fun with Jake and I pray he brings you as much joy that Jordan did.

    We miss you guys already too. The boys told me they are sorry they wore you out. Just wait until there are three of them. We will need to have you here just so B and I aren’t out numbered. Thanks for taking the time to stay and to help out with the boys. B and I really enjoyed our time away. We love you!
