Very sad to find out that this book is not going to be available except as an e book once this printing has sold out. So if you've every thought about getting a copy, do it now because it will only be an e book within six months. I had no clue sales were low for this book. I think Tyndale did a great job with it.

 I think girls need to be able to hold the book. You can't put an e book on your shelf either. It's a new world and probably Family Christian declaring bankruptcy and then going out of business hasn't helped.

Family Photos

One day Adam, Tara and a friend from the Marine Corps went rafting and ziplining, and the rest of us took photos by the creek where it runs by the campgrounds. (We took more with them later). Which do you like best?

After pictures, they decided to play king of the rock. LOL. Guess who won?

Hiking/Tubing in the Smokey Mountains

After rafting, we hiked up the trail to show Adam and Tara where we would be tubing. Here are some of our photos.

Later we tubed the same route. Some of the kids went several times.

Adventuring in North Carolina

Tyler, Jasmine and I left for Bryson City on Tuesday. Adam and Tara too. We all got here in the evening. I was worried about my car, but it made it. I was worried because the forecast for this area showed 90% chance of storms everyday. The weather has been beautiful.

Wednesday morning we went whitewater rafting. It was not nearly as fun or challenging as last year. Partly because last year we had Felicia from "Stare if You Must" blog's kids with us. Her adult kids were guides. We had two rafts and a lot of competition and rescuing of each other. The water is much higher this year, so not as many obstacles. And her adult kids weren't here to guide, so we did a guided trip. It seems like we floated more than rafted at times. But we had fun being together. Just wish the trip had been more thrilling.

Since then we have done a lot of tubing, and now the Stare If You Must crew is here too,and Rick and the twins will be here soon, so there will be a lot more photos to come. But I only have internet using Adam's hotspot so I'm not sure how often I'll be online.
