The Millard family no longer owns property in Middletown. We closed on the house on Friday Sept. 12. It was truly a wonderful moment. The bubbly "kids" (seemed like kids to me!) that bought it think it's so "cute" and "just can't wait!" to be in there! I loved it. They were so excited. Of course, we were pretty excited to hand it over. Thanks for all your prayers on our behalf in this matter.

Today we needed to find a Buckeye tree. Why? Because it ist the Ohio State Tree and Caleb needed to add to his Ohio State Study. So while we were out at the Arbaritum today I took quite a few pics. I'll share just a few pics of the good-looking guys.
My friend Amy and her 2 girls went along. We helped each other with pictures.
Love those eyes!
Oh yeah, almost forgot...the Buckeye Tree!

Last week was kind of a strange week for our family. Caleb went to Youth Camp and hence my babysitter was gone so...we had Daniel go spend the week with Chris's mom in Lebanon, OH. A ten year old in a retirement community for a week! Wrap your head around that! I lectured him for days about moving slowly around wheelchairs and walkers and speaking up when talking to the people. They all just love him because whether they can hear him or not, he loves to talk to anyone of them.
Well, all that said, it means Chris and I had the house to ourselves. I worked most of the time, but on Friday I didn't have to work. Chris's airplane was in S. Carolina getting some work done on it and he needed to rent a car and drive down there and fly it back.
Friday morning we left at 6:30am and headed down interstate 77. I have never driven on that interstate that I know of. It was beautiful. For 10 hours it was beautiful.
Road weary, ready for air travel
Everything is running smoothly.
The Heavens declare the Glory of God.
This was the view most of the way home. Causes my heart to lift in praise!
The trip home took one and a half hours. It was smooth! We were able to get home, make connections with Caleb's ride home from Youth Camp and sleep in our own bed that night! I just love living in this century!

Today was a day off work for me. I worked quite hard here at home and then off to the pool with the boys for an hour. That was so fun. My kids swim well, so I just turned on the iPod and lay back to sleep in the sun for a few. It was great.
One thing of note...Our house was shown today to a return couple. They saw it Monday and wanted to come back today. Please, Pleae pray that they just feel as though they can not live without that house. We really need them to take it off our hands.
Later..Blessings to you my friends.

Boys Craft time. (They made airplanes)
Wow, have we ever had fun this week. I took Daniel and 3 other girls Chiann, Rachel and Heidi, from our church to Kidz Adventure 2008. It was a kids camp held on our own Beulah Grove Camp Grounds. There were 55 kids there and we had great fun! This camp is put on by Appalachia Youth Ministries. This ministry is headed by Bro. Mac (McCrary) and his son Bro. Ray McCrary. They do a wonderful job. It was a camp for kids 7 - 11 years old. What brave souls to take on kids of that age!

The Flag drapped coffin
One very hot boy. This was our first day of really feeling like summer!
Salutes from every discipline! The Bikers for Jesus, Sheriff, Zanesville Police, Army, Navy...
The Bike Parade
Our tax dollars at work! The Sheriff had to jump the Army van because they could not get it going, while we all waited in the scorching hot sun! They never did get the van to go and had to move it out of the line so the procession could go.
Some of us just love the uniform! Go Army!
There were other good looking men there too!! My own of course! Caleb helped with parking detail.

I just wanted to show off my new favorite toy. I've had it for about a month. I just love it. It's my phone, PDA, and internet. Thank you Verizion! I started out with a Blackberry Pearl. That is a cute little phone, but there were some of the features that I didn't like and so I returned it for this Palm Treo. I love technology!!

It has been so long since I have posted anything on my blog. It is not due to lack of interest, believe me! I read alot of blogs and love to hear and see everything that is happening in the lives of others.
Myself, I have been very busy. I have been out of town a lot working on our house in Middletown to get it to sell. I took lots of really great pictures so I could show off all the neat things, but alas, I left my camera at a friends house and can not retrieve my pictures to show off.
The boys have been enjoying the warm weather. Caleb did an annual cleaning and inspection on their bicycles and they are up and running. They really took a hit over the winter as we did not have a protected place to keep them. We are looking forward to warm mornings and drinking our morning coffee out on the back porch. ummmm! Love that!
New for me is my new Palm Treo! What a great toy. It is my PDA and phone all rolled into one! It is a totally cool toy for those who love electronic toys! I'm more dependent on it than I ever was my phone or PDA! Is that good, or bad? Makes ya wonder, doesn't it?
Must continue on with our school day so that is all the updates so far. Will post pictures as soon as I get back in touch with my camera
Keep writing all I'm reading!

I have so much to say about Upward Basketball. It is truly a wonderful program.
It provided an opportunity for Daniel to learn the game, learn sportsmanlike conduct and Christlike conduct. He won an award for most improved player.
One of the biggest things that Daniel has learned in Upward Basketball is that you don't quit when you are behind. With game system games it is just so easy for him to push the reset button when he isn't doing all that well. He really needed a real life situation where there was no reset button! His team has only won 1 game, but they have learned alot.
Would you all give a round of applause for the most improved player, playing Forward (most of the time) Daniel Millard!

While we were together with Chris's family at Christmas, his mother brought some pictures for him and his sister to decide what they wanted. We found this picture of Caleb. Chris has looked and looked for this pictures because it was one of his favorites. We had a flood in our basement in Middletown years ago and we were just sure this was one of the pictures ruined. Behold, his mother had it all the time. What great gifts God sometimes hands us!
Caleb is standing under a Cessna 421 or, a Golden Eagle as it is sometimes called. He was such a cutie!
