If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

1. Have you ever been to the US capital-Washington DC? If so, what's your favorite site? If not, what would you most like to see on a visit to that city someday in the future? Is it even on your list of places to visit?
I went with my oldest on her 8th grade trip and I absolutely loved it!  My favorite site is the Lincoln Monument.   Here are a couple of pictures.

I just so much wanted to climb up in his lap for a few minutes.

I also loved the White House, although we only saw it from the outside.

I loved zooming in on the White House.  I was hoping to see someone.  But I didn't.

The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier was really awesome to see.

Actually I loved all the monuments and memorials that we saw.  I think every American should have the opportunity to tour our nation's capital.  I hope to go back again someday with my husband.

2. When did you last attend a wedding? Are there any weddings on your summer calendar? Were you a summer bride? If you're single, is summer the season of your dream wedding?
It's been several years since I've been to a wedding.  It may have been my cousin's son's wedding.  I can't remember what season it was, although it was a beautiful wedding.  No I was a February bride but it was a beautiful, warm, bright, sunny day.

3. What is your favorite way to eat strawberries?
Dipped in chocolate. 

4. What is one thing you are especially looking forward to this summer?
Just spending time with my family.  Hopefully grilling out a lot and maybe a few day trips around our area.  Like hopefully, the Columbus Zoo.

5. Do you use/like the self checker at the grocery store?
Yes, I do like them as long as I don't have a great big order.

6. Share a favorite piece of common sense advice.
"Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you."

7. Barefoot, flip flops, tennis shoes, sassy sandals-your first choice for summertime?

8. Insert your own random thought here.
My youngest just has 1 project to complete and she will be done with her Freshman year of high school!  Yay! (edit:  Her assignment is finished now! )  As soon as it's graded, she is officially a Sophomore!  Congrats girl, you did a great job!


  1. I'm with you on being barefoot! Love the photos of Washington. Hope to go there some day. And dipped in Chocolate - forgot that one!! :)

  2. I love strawberries in chocolate too..I like them most anyway. And I like chocolate most anyway too : )

    I love the Columbus zoo...we lived in Columbus when my oldest was a baby and spent lots of weekends pushing the stroller around there. Hope you have a great summer!

  3. My daughter is technically finishing up her freshman year of high school this week too. We homeschool, and even though she will still have some math and writing to finish up over the summer...this final history project is the last thing to complete before her evaluation on Monday. Doesn't seem possible...they grow up so fast!

  4. I had forgotten about chocolate covered strawberries! YUMMY! Loved the photos of Washington, DC.

  5. congrats to your daughter.. Have fun at the Zoo...

  6. I agree with you that every American should go to DC at least once in their life. It's so incredible!

  7. Strawberries dipped in chocolate! (Smacks forehead with hand.) How could I forget to mention that?!? : )

  8. Awesome answers. I would love to go to DC. I am always barefoot at home!

  9. I enjoyed your pictures of Washington!
    I agree with your advice, it's among my favorite.
    A sophomore already? She's on the home stretch now!

  10. The Lincoln Memorial is one of my favorite sights to see in D.C. When I visited, I was awestruck at its size. It truly does represent the legacy of such a wise president.

  11. Enjoyed your answers! I am with you on being barefoot. I enjoyed DC also. I would like to go again since I have a good camera now. lol

    until next time... nel
