Welcome to our adventures. I try as best as I can to document the happenings here in our family - everything from the shenanigans to the spiritual, from the kid to the kitchen, from the cat to the catastrophes. We believe that adventure can be found in everything we do...even in the mundane tasks of the day. When we set our minds on things above in gratitude to God, we find the strength to approach life with a sense of purpose & adventure. The adventure may not always be what we have planned...but isn't that what adventure is all about?

In our family, where 3 or more are gathered (and one of the 3 happens to be 5 years old), we say "toot" instead of "fart". Not sure why fart got such a bad wrap....I mean, why is toot so much better than fart? What did fart ever do to anyone? Nonetheless, I'm sure it was in the parents manual somewhere that we should say toot and not fart when in the presence of young impressionable yutes. So, we do - and Abby has never heard otherwise.

So we are sitting in a diner in Holbrook, Az sometime last week and while we're waiting for our meal, we are checking out some fun little books that are on the table. You know, kitchy little books like, "The Disgruntled Drivers Handbook" and "If Life Were Fair Then..." Mike was reading one of the books, but laid it open on the table to talk with me about something. Meanwhile, Abby is looking at the page that Mike is reading - the title of the chapter is large and bolded there on the page.

Our little girl.....awwww....we are so proud of her reading accomplishments....she was able to read one of the words there on the chapter title...she read it nice and loud so all the diners around us could share in our pride.
