Things have been crazy busy this past week, but so good!
Tuesday night we drove to Dallas after my 7 pm class- we got in very late, then on Wednesday morning we packed up to head to Arkansas. This was my first time to Arkansas and my first time to meet a lot of this side of Steve's family. We had the best time.
Arkansas is beautiful this time of year. The trees are amazing colors and when you drive down the highway it looks like a patch work quilt- amazing. It was great to meet Steve's dad side of the family. They welcomed me to the family and made me feel right at home- that was a good feeling.
I had my first (and last) buttermilk experience. Steve's granddad love to have buttermilk with crushed saltines after he eats. So the fist night we were there I thought I would join him in this endeavor- not a good idea. I took one pretty big bite and couldn't even get it down my throat. Never again, but at least I tried!
Friday we went all over the Little Rock area and the Sargent's showed me the places they use to live and such- it was good to be with Steve for that.
We drove back to Dallas on Saturday night and we all stayed with Steve's family. We made breakfast together that night and it was good to all be together. Kelly also has taught me to crochet. I am in the middle of making my first scarf. I kinda like this new hobby.
I have also started reading a new book: A Million Little Pieces. It is a very hard book to read, but I am so glad I am reading it. It is about a recovering drug and alcohol addict. I think it is a great book for people to read- it is real, but know that is a pretty hard book to read.
Today at 1 pm I am leaving for the Christian Camping Conference I go to every year with camps. This year it is in San Antonio. I am very excited about this trip, I always love this conference.
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving... Now bring on Christmas!!!!
