I’m not one to create waves or become politically involved in issues.  BUT- I know what this country stands for and the price paid to obtain our freedoms.  Coming from a family where each senior father has fought in, and made great sacrifice defending this country, I know we are living in a generation where sadly, our freedom and those who fought for it are taken for granted.  

The Spirit of America Show is a wonderful way to show, teach, and allow you and your children to experience what made this country great.

You can check their website for shows coming near you, and even watch live steams of performances.  Best of all- it’s free!

As our high school day's’ marching band would chant~ “Yes, yes, yes we do- we’ve got spirit, how ‘bout you???”

a little closer

While it’s not the prettiest in roofing history, it will serve it’s purpose and allow us to be just another step closer to the end goal~ garageroof1 Which is why a commemorative flower must be placed in the center~ a symbol of finished projects, a symbol of wonderful friends (THANK YOU AGAIN JEFF!!!), a symbol a humor, a symbol of the awesome completed deck to come… WAY down the road :), and a symbol of a female touch.garageroof2

I think Mark may see it as something else--- a symbol of his wife’s crazy ideas… (which is really a politically-blog-correct way of saying it’s getting deep in here… )

Off to complete the list of to-do’s before the (gasp!) weather breaks!
