"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails.
I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp.
I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children.
I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden.
I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder.
I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."

Air Show 2008

A week ago they were having the annual air show at March Airforce base. Our good friends Phil and Marie went with us and we had a fun time. The airplanes were loud and the kids loved it. there was the big Stealth bomber that flew right on top of us and we didn't hear it until it was too late and the ground was shaking, ears ringing and all the kids crying. Hollie learned to pug her ears which was nice cause I had to plug Trevors. To this day they both run to me scared when they hear a plane cause they think its gonna be too loud. trevor also started putting his hands to his ears and says, Loud loud. it's cute. We had a fun time and it wasn't too hot this year.
