What? How did it get to be January 14th already? I've been a bad blogger again, must get back to sharing! We have done so many things here in Oklahoma, done some traveling to see family, and I have so much to share. I'll have to just start doing some random posts.
In the immediate future...we have a date to go home to Mountain Dreams! We'll be leaving Oklahoma the last week of February instead of in April as we'd originally planned. I'll share more on that later.
I'll be headed to New Orleans this weekend for Girls Week with my sisters! I'll be home on the 25th or 26th (I may stay an extra day in Arkansas on the way back to do a little family history digging into the Brooks family.) And then comes the real traveling...we're flying to New York on the 29th and the following day we'll be leaving for Israel with a group led by Governor Mike Huckabee. We're very excited about this! We had started making plans to visit China next fall when this opportunity dropped in our laps last August. Israel was also on our list of future travels and we can't see ourselves getting another opportunity to go with someone like the governor. We just found out that Pat Boone and his wife, Shirley, and Dr. Tim LaHaye (author of the "Left Behind" series) and his wife, Dr. Beverly LaHaye will also be with us! When we return to New York we have tickets to see "Wicked" and I'll be able to cross Broadway off my Bucket List.
It doesn't end there. From New York we'll be flying to Tennessee to visit our friends, Tony and Tonya. Yes, they're the ones who were here in Oklahoma. They bailed from here in November and are enjoying their new log home in eastern Tennesseee. When we leave we'll be headed east in a rental car with a stop in Atlanta to visit a WWII, P-51 pilot that John knows from his Warbird days and then on to Savannah for a few days.
That'll give us just enough time to fly back to Oklahoma, pack up the duplex and head out for Montana and an aviation conference in Missoula the first week of March. It's going to be a busy few weeks and we can't wait to get back to Mountain Dreams!
