I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking the kids to scout camp. I want there to be a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived.

Fackrell Reunion

We always have a good time at the Fackrell Family reunion in Mountain View. WY. We are grateful to Uncle Kenny and Aunt Bobbie for opening their home to all of us every year.
This year, Uncle Kenny took the kids out to ride the horses. This was such a treat for my kids!
Kaden not so sure at first, but soon got the hang of it!

Aubree was a natural! It made me wish she had the chance to ride more often.

Brennen was NOT a fan, and just got more and more mad.

He and another cousin decided to scoop poop instead.

Uncle Kenny and Aunt Nancy.

Tyson really tried to be brave.

Brennen would rather hang out with Uncle Darryl than play games.

Waiting for the games to begin! Aunt Laura did a great job and had some fun water games!
