A brief overview of the last summers adventures!

Last summer was full of adventure, goodbye parties, and visits to friends and family that we might not see for awhile.
It was a lot of fun, although sad at times. I learned a long time ago, that one cannot move forward without letting go of something. There is always sadness in letting go, but it is an energy that can be processed..and used to fuel the future. The greater sadness, is being afraid to let go, and never experience life to its fullest..for even when we think we are hanging onto something...we still only have the memory..nothing more. In Scottsdale, I always had this feeling of being homesick, even though I was home. Everything that I knew as home was gone, torn down, or built over...the small town values had disappeared..the people self absorbed and cranky. (Not all of you..but as a culture) So, if I was already homesick, might as well experience something else eh? So, we began by heading to Payson to be with mom, but we left before she got there, from there back down to the townhouse to learn to swim, mighty mud mania, out to Lake Powell for a couple of weeks on a HUGE houseboat, from there to California to mend things with Nathan, and see Ava. Oh, right before Nathans, we did Dads, in Anaheim, Disneyland, the beach, Balboa Island which was my favorite when I was a kid...Then Jacinta's for her beautiful wedding..(pictures to follow) and then in search of our new home. In there are birthdays, graduations...and life.
Don't get me wrong, there are a lot of things and people I miss...Amazingly so...
but:
the Mississippi River is PHENOMINAL!! I am in love...and will try my best to let you all experience this place through the blog, as time goes on. Love to all....
