Great Time With Old Friends

Wow! I can't believe that we hadn't been back to Ringgold in 3 years!!! It seems like we have lived in North Carolina for forever, but I guess it really was just 5 years ago. WOW! Time flies too fast!
While we were in VA, we got to visit with most of our old friends there, and I just wanted to say thank you to the Bounds, Vogltanz, Fultures, Slaughters, Robbins, and Haleys for coming out to see us and for having our family in their really meant a lot to us :D

Me, Caelen, and Madison Vogltanz who used to be our neighbor in VA

2 crazy gals! :P

Our old home. It was sooo beautiful.....

Check the silkie page at the top of my blog page to see changes in the flock :(

Apologia Conference GA

Well, we got back from another Apologia conference in Atlanta GA . . . very tired, but we had lots of fun. It seems like we have traveled more in this one summer than ever before in my life! Thankfully, my family LOVES traveling and I'm just blown away at the opportunity that Apologia has given us to travel all over America!

Our booth

The Fullbrights were our "booth buds" for the Atlanta Conference this time

When the conference was over, we went to Big Chow Grill; a stir fry restaurant that was simply AMAZING!!!!! :P

Oh! And if you hear my new song on the ipod on the side of my blog, it is called, 'Hold Me' by Jamie Grace. We heard it on the way back from the conference, and I just thought it was sooo neat! It is about how God holds us even when things are not going exactly the way we want them to. So enjoy, and have a great weekend! I know I am looking forward to mine :)
In Christ,
Hannah ;)

In Raleigh with Aunt Su. . .

Aunt Susan had Caelen and I over to her house in Raleigh for a few days, and when Aunt Suey finds out that you have never been to Raleigh, she goes all out to make sure you see all the sights, and experience everything there is to be experienced! ;) We did everything from taking a tour of the city in a rickshaw, to attending a movie on the lawn with the Sound of Music singalong.
To say the least, we had a blast walking around with, sweating with, and laughing with Aunt Susan, her friend Nichole, and Margo (our cousin). Thank you everybody for making our trip sooo much fun! :P

Caelen got to see her beloved Egyptian artifacts at the art museum. . . can you tell she was a little excited???

I thought it was neat that the History museum had an exhibit on the Judaculla Rock when my family and the Sealy family just saw it in person 2 weeks ago!

This was a very old (beautiful) house there in town that hasn't been lived in or even bought for the longest time because there is a rumor that it is haunted. . . come on now, really?

Caelen loved her some purple house :P

Oh! And our trip to Raleigh wouldn't have been complete without a trip to the famous cupcake shoppe. . .which. . .was. . .uh. .closed. How convenient!

Aunt Suey's lovely little house! :)
