The place God calls you is the place where your deep gladness and the world's deep hunger meet.

Mmmm. It's Nice Here.

It's safe to say, I would do okay as a snowbird. I'd possibly be the youngest (poorest?) snowbird down here. But, I'd be warm - oh so warm.

We got here with only one minor glitch. The flights were smooth, quick, and the boys enjoyed more TV than they usually would in a month. So, it's safe to say they thought it was fabulous. Unfortunately, I was frisked beyond my imagination at customs between Edmonton and Palm Springs. What was it that the Customs Officer said to me as he was leaving me with the woman who was to "check me over"? Ah yes, it was "this will leave you feeling refreshed". Sick.

My words of wisdom to anyone traveling across a border: innocent 1/4 full bottles of hand sanitizer will indeed lead you to be violated if you make it through customs in one go. Yuck.

(in our yard...oranges, sweet grapefruit, and lemons)

Today, at least 2 referrals were given out so to say that made the day more wonderful (in all of it's 30 degrees warmth) than it already was, would be an understatement.

May the week continue so incredibly.

(my parents were upgraded from their prius...I'd say they did okay)

Enjoy the heat!! Palm Springs is awesome--are you visiting anyone there or are you there on your own?

Family vacation. No agenda :)...except relaxation and reminiscing...this is where we always came as kids.
