Luke, Padme and I went to our local fire station recently for a field trip with some friends. The older kids had been to the fire station before, but this was Padme's first time. She was very excited. She got to try on the fireman's gear and it looked so comical because she is so little in it. Luke trying out the fire truck.
Padme loved it all.

This was the fourth or fifth time we have been to a fire station and I am always so impressed at the firemen's kindness and patience with the children. Truly public servants we are blessed to have protecting us. We will have to go back again when Yoda is a bit older and Leia can come along, too.
I am a child of God, a wife of 20 years, a homeschooling mom of 6 wonderful children, a daughter, a sister, and a friend.
My family moved last year 500 miles away from home where we had a wonderful life with family, friends, and church family. We are trying to find our way and settle down in our new home. I keep looking for a new normal, but God has a sense of humor, and I am not sure it exists.
I started this blog as a way to let our family and friends at home know a little about what we are up to in our new place, but it has become a scrapbook for me of our life and what the kids have been up to.
