Mom, visiting with a friend that was able to come to the conference. We enjoyed seeing you.Â

The Redding conference was a blessing. The conference coordinator treated our family to burgers and fries from the famous In and Out Burger chain. That was the first time that we had In and Out Burgers, and they were great.

It was a highlight to be able to meet the homeschool father who has helped us so much by advising us of the California road conditions. We were also able to see some friends, whom we have known for a while, which was a special blessing.

The location for the conference was a tad unusual. It was held in a Christian college facility. Loading the books in took a little longer then usual simply because we were on the second floor, and we had to hand carry all of our materials. And because of the distance to tote our items, we didn’t do any music that night.

It was fascinating to see a scale model of the Tabernacle, which was on display in one of the rooms where the conference was held. We have just been reading about the Tabernacle in our family Bible time. We have discussed the different aspects of it, and amazingly the Lord provided a model for us to look at.

We had the privilege of parking in front of a family’s house, for the night. It was a perfect location to park and quiet. We were able to fill up with water, and we also had an electrical hookup too. The next morning we enjoyed playing with their little ones. The little two year old especially reminded me of Abigail.

“Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore” (Psalms 16:11).

  1. Oh how neat that “J” and “E” were able to attend the seminar! I have been praying for them as they made their trip. What an added blessing for them to spend time with you all before they headed home.

  2. There is a life size replica of the Tabernacle in Orlando Florida. I had the privilege of walking through it a few years ago. It’s on a donation basis and let me tell you it is fascinating. If you all are ever in that area you should check it out.
    Also I sure enjoyed see you all get that DQ treat! Yummy!
    Kelly, it’s great to hear from you :-). Thanks for the suggestion. Sarah

  3. Hey, it’s little Eliseo!
    Such a surprise when I clicked on the picture to view the larger one and recognized the faces in it!
    How wonderful that they were able to attend a conference while they were in the States – I hope it was a very nice visit for you all!

  4. It was soooo good to see you! I took a picture of the tabernacle too for my children as I thought they’d enjoy it. Know we are praying for you and enjoy each of your updates. May the Lord continue to use you all for His glory and service.
    I’ll write you all later; I got home late last night and I think I have a week of house cleaning to do to catch up :), but oh how good it is to be home!
    PS- That’s one cute looking little boy in that first photo 🙂

  5. PSS- I really like the new blog header! It looks great! And I don’t know why (as I’m so very computer challenged), but it now loads wwaaayyyy faster too. 🙂

  6. We were glad to have you here. The kids have been talking about their memorable “tag” game with you. The pictures you took are beautiful. Thanks!

    And Anna, thanks for doing school with Lily in her “doodle book”. She was showing me pictures you two drew together.

    Blessings to you all,
