Birding at Malheur

When I was a child, my parents took me to the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. I have been wanting to take my husband, an avid birder, there for years. We finally got our chance and my husband’s sister’s family and my brother joined us on the trip too. We had lots of fun and saw […]

Brown Birds

I haven’t blogged for awhile. I hope you missed me! Once in awhile, life comes at me a little too fast and I just have to try to survive. I had one of those weeks, and then immediately after that we went on a much anticipated trip, but I’ll post about that later this […]

Please Pray & Thank you

A few of you sent me emails and left comments saying that you were praying for my brother (31 year old) who was hospitalized for internal bleeding a month ago. I just thought I’d say how much I appreciated all those comments. I’d like to also ask that you keep praying. He hasn’t got well. […]
