Sap, Stars and Street Signs

Sap- Is my Jasper/Brookeland lingo... It is really quite beautiful out here.... we live in a area outside of Jasper called Brookeland, we are surrounded by trees and wilderness. Many of you might know that I am not much into the wilderness but it is a nice break from the city. It is a quieter more peaceful life out here, everything is relaxed. It is a great reminder that sometime we just need to slow down and look at the world that God has created for us and Enjoy it!!!
Stars- Are what surround us here in Brookland.... I have never seen so many in my life. Stars are everywhere in the world.... we can see the same stars in Houston as we see in Brookland (just not as many probably), it is also allows us to remember that our friends and family see the same stars also. It allows us to feel connected without being in the same place as someone.
Street Signs- this is Houston, WOW! I have never been to such a crazy place. Don't get me wrong it has been great but it is defiantly crazy. I have decided that if I want to make it there, I am going to have to start driving a little different, so I don't get run over. Houston has been an adventure... I think it will take a little getting used to, but I think I we are going to fit right in. We have been able to make new, re-connect old and strengthen some existing friendships.... which has been really exciting.

Well over all Andy and I have been doing good. We have been crazy busy and will continue to be for the next month or so.
I promise i will post some pictures soon.

Andy should be able to teach you about Houston driving and then some! I recall when he drove a group of us to a formal one time that he brushed off a cop by pulling in someones driveway.
I am excited for you as God is teaching you how to relax and enjoy the outdoors!
The Jasper area is perfect for raising kids! :)
