Deep South in Alabama

Yes, yes we are in Montgomery, Alabama. It is nice to be in the deep south, where everyone is friendly. If you haven't heard yet, Aaron has accepted a job as assistant manager of the adventist book center for the Gulf States Conference here in Montgomery. Aaron arrived here on Sunday. Mom and I came Monday. And all today we have been searching for an apartment for Aaron. It has been quite an experience. Finding one that is close to his work, and yet affordable. We had found the one that we liked. But when he went back to pay the reservation fee, someone else had already sent in a reservation fee and the apartment we were looking at wasn't available. That was an disappointment. But we had in mind another apartment that is really nice. It is right next to a park with an walking trail, and lake. And he will be able to move in August 4 at the earliest. Right now I am on Aaron's labtop in Hampton Inn. We are enjoying our vacation so far. It is nice not to go to work. And Mom is leisurely reading her Adventist Review instead of washing dishes. I am happy for her. We are going to go sight seeing. Possibly the Rosa Parks museum, Old Alabama town, Confederate White House. Probably won't see all of that. And yes, I am going swimming hopefully tomorrow. Aaron is going to start at work tomorrow. It is starting to wind down in the summer, which I am sad about. I am not excited about starting up school again. So enjoy vacation while we have it. Take care . Will post soon.

Happy Fourth of July!

Happy Fourth of July everyone! Today we are celebrating our independence. By the way, I am thankful that I live in America, where I can serve God and worship Him. Today we had our annual picnic. We had potato salad, veggies, baked beans, pink lemonade, and top it off with blueberry pie. Stephen and Uncle Dave came over, with Grandma,mom, and I here. Then, Stephen played the piano, and we sang patriotic songs. When the party was over,Stephen and I took a driving lesson. This the second time I have driven behind the wheel. When we first started I would sit in the passengers seat and do the steering wheel, and Stephen the brakes. I think I am doing pretty good, I just need to get my turns down. I am glad that Aaron is back from Africa, that is a lot of miles to travel. Norman was wondering what books I am reading so here it goes:
The Bible
Testimonies for the Church, vol 1:Ellen White
From Hollywood to Heaven, Steve Wohlberg
Little Town on the Prairie, Laura Ingalls Wilder

You can't go wrong with reading a good book. I love reading. Grandma likes to read a lot too. She is so sweet, to live with here at home. I hope everyones summer is going well, and I am looking forward to my vacation at the end of the month when I have a week off from work. Happy Fourth of July!
