June 20, 2016

By Karen Gordon It was 200 degrees outside and the mosquitoes got to their busywork as early as sunrise. Our family was getting moved into our new house, Bossman was at work, LeScoot and his cousin were at day camp and my nephew was helping me with the fun task of packing up boxes of stuff. As in, “stuff” that we should’ve gotten rid of when the big kids moved out years ago. Our new lawn guy was scheduled to lay the foundation for a beautiful backyard garden with the option of a water feature (but probably not…you know…mosquitoes). Upon...

I Smell Trouble

By Paige Tucker   One Friday night, Julia Reynolds was lying next to me in our bed to fall asleep as we were heading into the weekend. She drifted off snuggled close to me and I was enjoying every minute of her cuddles, but then I started smelling something less than pleasant coming from around my sweet angel’s face.   I was sniffing all around her head and face to figure out where the smell was coming from. Surely a toddler’s breath cannot be this bad, I thought, but I made a mental note to crack down on our teeth...

“Hey!! Don’t judge me!”

By Karen Gordon   So many things have happened since my last column both locally and globally. The holidays were pretty cool, except that our adult children and a few siblings were unable to come home for Christmas.

Santa’s Surprise Stop

By Paige Tucker   Christmas is… HERE! It’s my most favorite time of year! The family and friends, the music, the decorations, the excitement — it all makes for a spectacular season.   These days, I feel like a kid at Christmas again, getting to see all the magic through Julia Reynolds’ big blue eyes. The holidays get better and better the older she gets. Her Christmas list grows longer by the day, and she just announced to us at the dinner table that, “Santa was watching!” Can you tell we’ve been using that line lately?   The excitement of...

Partying With Jesus

By Karen Gordon   Confession: I struggle with religion, the perks and the baggage that comes along with it. I’ve never struggled before because I’ve always been comfortable in the knowledge that there’s something bigger than all of us… something watching, waiting and keeping us safe from harm. But, as I continue to meet new and different people, I welcome diverse opinions so the struggle continues and intensifies. My husband is very conservative and I’m liberal. It is true that opposites attract, but nobody ever told me that I would have to bite my tongue this much. Sheesh! Dad (a.k.a....
