Spring is in the air.

Rain is a sign of spring isn't it??

Dream On...

Not original or even profound but it is definitely a Sacred Echo for me this past weekend.

The theme for The Revolve Tour this weekend also happens to be the central theme in the book I was reading this past week. (Rooms, by James L. Rubart) and also the resounding cry from both of my children.

I don't believe in coincidence.
God has this on my heart for a reason and I will be faithful and search it out. What are my dreams for my life? What are His dreams for my life?

Are You A Nomad?

You must be careful when you give a student too much freedom in their writing selections or you may end up with something similar to this:

There are various ways to tell if you are a nomad. Here are a few to get you started.

You might be a nomad if your packing boxes also serve as dressers. If you find it tedious to pack, unpack, and fold clothes over and over again, then you probably don’t utilize a dresser in the first place. Supposing that you move more than the average person, even a mid-sized dresser is unwieldy to move with, especially up and down stairs. For my family, we’ve found out that stackable plastic drawers can work as dressers as well as nightstands and for regular storage.

You might nomadic if you have multiple phone numbers on speed dial for pizza places across the country. Pizza is a staple food in most people’s diet. It is practically its own food group. If you are on the road a lot it is easy to eat out or pick up. Pizza makes decent leftovers, whether it is hot or cold. One thing you have to be careful of if you have multiple numbers, is calling the wrong one. Be sure to label each number carefully or someone might get a free pizza.

You might be a nomad if your mail has four or more forwarding stickers on it. It also might take a year to get to you. If you have ever had a lack of birthday and/or Christmas cards or packages, it might be that your mail has not had enough time to catch up with you. Do not panic. All you need to do is slow down and stay in one place for a while. Or, if that makes you antsy and long for the open road, then transfer the address to your parents’ house -- with their permission, of course.

When you hold Library cards from 5 libraries in 3 different States and they are all still active you may consider a Nomad support group.

Remember, if you ever think you might be showing nomadic qualities, check to see if you have normal dressers. Then search you phone for numerous pizzeria contacts with different area codes. Lastly, look at the postmarks on your mail. Good luck.

By the way, this was inspired my the "my whole bedroom suite is made from moving boxes", "Mom, you have Domino's on speed dial for Montana, Idaho AND Washington!", "Have you checked your library account in Hamilton lately? They have a book in you placed on hold." (We are now living two States away in another time zone.) Well, once she got going we found ourselves both laughing and sighing over some of the realizations. We are still looking for a Nomads Anonymous group but it keeps relocating!

Soaked in Seattle (Everett really)

Not complaining just using a little humor to express the past couple of days.

I had a wonderful day yesterday celebrating my Birthday with my kiddos at Denny's. I don't know exactly why but we were all in rare humor and laughed so much I thought the management might ask us to leave. Even after Jordan asked me to go get his Epi-Pen out of the car...we were all having giggle fits as one thing after another struck our funny bones. Wish you could have been there because we had FUN! Just hanging out together.
By the way, if you have never heard Jordan on a roll with his dry humor then you are truly missing out in a treasure. Listening to him last night trying to read the instructions for administering his Epi-Pen made me laugh so hard I thought I was going to bruise a rib!

This week I am in training at Fluke Corporation in Everett, WA for Met/Cal Database & Reports. Kids are enjoying the change of pace although I am not sure how much schoolwork is getting done. : ) We wanted to tour the Boeing Plant but the tours end at 3pm so it doesn't look like we will make it this trip. The cold (low 30's) and wet weather are making it pretty miserable to do much outdoors.
