Wow! It's fall! I've been a naughty blogger. I've neglected my blog. I've not neglected my blogger buddies, though. I've been sneaking in to check on you when time permits.

It was a busy summer here at the creek. Work, animals, renovations on the house, spending time with my soldier boy . . . . my plate has been full. There are just not enough hours in the day any more and I spend less and less time on the computer.

It's hard to believe we've been here at the creek for over a year now. Time has flown by so fast. So many changes. So many lessons learned. So many firsts. All the trials and joys that come with farm life. We've been tested. We've been blessed.

My son finished his basic training and AIT and just as he was getting ready to settle in to going to school and finding a job he found out that his Guard unit was being deployed in January. He'll be heading off for the mid East as a medic. I'm terrified. I'm anxious. I'm proud. I'm a mom. He'll always be my little boy.

There are so many things I could say. So many stories I could tell, but for now I'll leave you with this thought. . . . Two years ago when we began this journey, we were bound FOR Kentucky. Now, as a wise friend pointed out to me, we are bound TO Kentucky.

Blessings and hugs from the creek y'all!


P.S. Sorry for the lack of pictures, I tried, I failed. I'm technologically challenged!

Ah, my Kentucky friend, it's good to hear from you again. Please tell your wonderful son thank you from my heart to him and those who go with him. I appreciate the service they give and the sacrifice they make for us. And thank you to you, too, his family. Words don't express the gratitude for what each of you gives to us.

Can't wait to see pictures of the 'place' one of these days.

Good to know you're still kicking. Likewise, friend, likewise.

Hope things are more settled now than they were a year ago...

Hope you love it more than you imagined you would. Prayers for your son this night.
