Ah...Home Again.

Hi everyone! I'm back home. Our trip was very fun and the longest time away from home that I can personally remember. Thursday morning we left, and when we got to Birmingham we went to the McWane Center, which is a really cool place! The next two days we were at the CHEF convention, and Sunday we hung around the hotel until about 2 o'clock, then we went back to the McWane Center and watched a movie in the IMAX dome theater. And today we came back home. There's probably a lot more I could write to make that a lot more interesting, but Anna does that better than I do. Well, I'm going to go read my book. I love reading, and it's a great way to just cool it. :)

    Most of you, I expect, don't know that Miriam's parents started the very first statewide homeschool group in Alabama !
    The homeschool convention/bookfair this year in Birmingham was really a blessing to me this year--the best one I have ever been to. Anna's current roommate's mom did get there and it was such fun to introduce her to some old friends (even an unexpected old friend from Little Rock, ARK was there !)
    Did I tell you, Anna's roommate's mom and her husband have 11 (7 sons and 4 daughters) children and live in Athens, AL? Seven were a challenge for me--I sometimes wonder how it would have been to have even more.
    Anna's doing very well. She's called a couple of times. Only 13 entries were offered to be in the "closing program" Friday night so they said everyone can do theirs. Anna will do "Storm" the group song she did in the recital but adapted for just one to do.
    Lydia and I and maybe 2 more : ) are planning to go Friday and bring Anna back on Shabbat (Saturday).
    Please do pray for Anna to glorify Jesus Christ each day left.

    Goodness gracious! That's incredible. Eleven children.

    Thanks for the update.

    I know how it is to be 'home again'. Sometimes it's a wonderful relief, sometimes it's a very depressing and emotionally disturbing time. It can vary.

    Mrs. Lofgren, I think you and one of your daughters (Lydia right?) were on the news at an abortion clinic maybe? This was the only way I knew how to get in contact w/ you, so I thought I'd ask if that was you or not!

    When, exactly, does Anna come back? I think I will be out of town when she starts posting again.

    Anna will come back Saturday, but leave again the next day I think.
    She's going to be gone for another week.
