We had a very fun group assembled at the Pringle’s in Wilson today. Sunny invited a family from Germany that is in Texas attending the Sunset International Bible Institute in Lubbock.

Accolades and a Traveling Cloud Show

Thursday, April 16 –

Today we ran to Lubbock. As with most of our trips to the big city, we had several reasons for going and several errands to run–many more than could possibly be accomplished.

Our main reason was to see Andrea Crowley inducted into the prestigious Sigma Tau Delta International Collegiate Honor Society.

We also enjoyed going to supper with her parents and grandparents. Earlier in the day we shopped at our favorite used clothing store and found some treasures.

On the way home, thunderstorms were active in counties all around us. We were treated to an awesome display of atmospheric eye candy.

Christmas at the Pringle’s (almost)

For the last few years we have enjoyed our Christmas get-togethers at Misty and Kevin’s. Again this year we were looking forward to it. However, at the last minute (due to unforeseen plumbing issues) we had to move the party to mom’s house.

It was as fun as ever. Lots of food, family and love.

A beautiful sunrise was in full bloom as we were loading up.

In the first valley we came to, a blanket of fog was hanging in the low spots.

Atlanta wanted Stockton and Carolina to pick out their own Christmas presents at Hobby Lobby. I think we spent 4 hours there and didn’t even make it to every isle. They had so much fun and got some real treasures.

Shower for Lora

Sunday, November 9, 2014 –

We traveled to Lubbock this afternoon to attend a shower for my niece. It was nice to see so many that I hadn’t seen in a while.

Fun Day in Amherst

 

Sunday, April 13

 

We enjoyed visiting the Amherst Church of Christ on Sunday. Several of our homeschooling friends attend there. Their kids were presenting their entries in the upcoming Leadership Training for Christ event coming up next weekend in Dallas. Puppet shows, skits, song leading, devotional speeches, scripture memory and more was presented by the kids and young adults of the congregation. I know they’re going to do well next weekend.

 

No, this fuzzy guy wasn’t at church, but afterwards we were invited to the Rodger’s home and the girls fell in love with these Pyrenees cross puppies.

Eugene Pringle Funeral

Saturday, April 5, 2014

 

We traveled to Lubbock Saturday morning to attend the memorial service for our good friend, Eugene Pringle.  Besides being Kevin’s father (Windy’s brother-in-law), he was also the father of Windy’s best friend in high school, Kayla. Over the years we’ve enjoyed visiting with Mona and Eugene at family gatherings. In the last few years, Misty and Kevin have hosted Thanksgiving and Christmas get-togethers at their beautiful home inWilson that brought both sides of the family together at the same time. This gave us lots of opportunity for getting to know the Pringle side of the family better. Eugene will be missed by everyone that was privileged to know him.
