"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."

L.A. county fair

Hollie had her first field trip of the school year. The whole school went to the L.A. county fair. It was so much fun. We all got in FREE too.

I guess we had a FUN day. This was the ride home.

Wow, the WHOLE school?? How fun! And free! :) It's been a long time since I've been to the L.A. fair.
