Blog Redesign

Gave up on trying to get a photo to work on my header of my blog for tonight.  While on a trip to Galena for a weekend with friends, I found a chocolate shop whose sign has the very name of my blog.  I took several pictures and hope to use one for the header of my blog.  So if any of you people out there reading my blog know how I can do that, let me know.  I will probably have lots of questions, but am sure that some of you have already done this.

Enjoy the new look.  I plan to keep it and just update a bit with the photo, if I can make that work.
Thanks in advance.

Did Ya Miss Me?

It has been 13 months since I blogged.  How bad is that?

Life gets hectic and while I come up with a lot of blog posts ideas in my mind, I rarely find (I mean make) the time to blog.  Probably because I feel it has to be something important or newsworthy or something worthing of making commentary on (ie. a current event).

I do a pretty good job of taking a lot of photos and need to do a better job of sharing them here. Business, homeschooling, church and other commitments keep our family on the go, a lot but we try to do as much as  we can as a family.  Today, we waited a bit before deciding, but did attend Homeschool Day at the Capitol in Des Moines and listened to several speakers.  Bill Federer has an almost encyclopedic knowledge of history and we could have listened to him all day.  We also listened to Steve Deace, who challenged us to not become complacent in being active in the political arena and being devoted to protecting our freedoms and not just talking about it once a year and not being eternally vigilant the rest of the time.

I hope to get on a regular schedule for blogging, so perhaps you will see more posts from me.
