My Little Buddy, Ava


I went home to IL a few weeks ago to visit my family and friends. While there, I also go to see my mom’s day care kids. The older ones remembered me, but a couple of the younger ones were too little last time they saw me. One of the little guys, Noah, couldn’t talk last time I saw him… but now he has a huge vocabulary! And he was so funny because instead of calling me “Cole” like all of the other kids do, he called me “Cola”. Too cute! (more…)

Sniffing Boots


While I was home last weekend, I enjoyed the time I got to spend with my mom and brother. One day, Adam came home after work and left his boots by the back door since he had been out doing field work that day.

Within a few minutes, my cat Izzy found those boots. Apparently, Adam had walked through something that smelled really good to felines. Izzy spent the next 20 minutes sniffing, rubbing his head on, and hugging my brother’s work boots. It was quite a funny sight.  (more…)

Thankful Thursdays


This Thursday I am thankful for:

1. A safe drive home yesterday from TN to IL. It was free from snow storms, and rained only a little. Only for a few minutes did I drive through torrential rains… which is much better than my last few drives!

2. My books on cd. They make the drive go SOOOOO much faster. I have been listning to The Chronicles of Narnia recently. Yesterday I finished The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.

3. Getting to see my sweet friend Anne and her two adorable boys! I am having lunch with them today and I always look forward to my time with them when I am home.
