Farewell Port Charlotte
After two wonderful years here in Port Charlotte, Steve and I are, once again, heading out to travel around the country in our RV.
We will be leaving Port Charlotte on August 16 and head to Asheville, North Carolina where we will be until mid-September. Our oldest son, his wife and daughter live there and we are excited to be celebrating a renewal of their wedding vows. They've been married for almost two years, but didn't have a reception. So, family and friends from all over the country will be converging on Asheville to have a great party and a weekend of hiking in the mountains. Plus we get to spend some quality time with little granddaughter who really only knows us as faces on a computer screen. It's interesting to know that her generation will think seeing people on the computer will be perfectly normal . . . ah, technology and the pace of change.
Anyway, from there, Steve and I will have a brief stop in Covington, Kentucky to visit the Creation Museum and the new Ark Encounter (https://arkencounter.com/) built by Ken Hamm (Answers in Genesis). I cannot wait as I have heard marvelous things about both venues. The ark is "life-size" so how cool is that going to be?????
Next, we are off to Toledo/Michigan to visit with our daughter, and our other grandchildren. We have missed them so much this past couple of years and look forward to them visiting us while we are on the road this next year or two.
Additionally, we will be spending time with our parents and our siblings. Lastly, but certainly not least, we are especially excited that we will be present for the birth of grandchild #5 - a boy whose name will be Tytus Landry Anderson on or about October 2nd. His parents are our youngest son, Steve Jr. and his wife Aime who live in Colorado Springs. Due to Stevie's need to be in training the month of September (he's a special agent for the Air Force), Aime elected to go home to Ohio and have the baby where her mother and our daughter Jill live. We will be in Toledo/Michigan from mid-September until Mid-October and then travel to Colorado Springs to stay with Stevie and Aime and the new baby for a week or so before we land in El Mirage, Arizona for the winter.
Next spring, we plan to head to the Pacific Northwest to explore God's creation in that area of our country.
Finally, let me just say from the bottom of Steve's and my heart,.. thank you so, so much to all our dear friends in Port Charlotte. We have loved getting to know you and spending the past two years playing, praying and worshiping with you. I cannot believe what a loving group of people you have been to both of us and we will miss you all so very much. Please come back to this website often and check up on us. You can even get in contact with us through the website if you would like. We are also thinking of creating a Facebook page so keep an eye out for that.
May God bless you all. We love you!!!
