Much great work is going on behind the scenes; so much so that I am so behind updating the website! Last summer I took two girls (the rest didn't want to brave the jungle as it is very primitive there), to live in Costa Rica to meet with a wonderful missionary family on our way to living and doing volunteer work at Jaguar Rescue Center in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica. The girls and I spent six weeks working and my husband and one more daughter flew out for a week of fun, adventure, and family travel before flying home. I will need to upload pictures when I have some free time again. What an amazing experience and adventure!!
Meanwhile, I am in graduate school to learn more about how to expand FHM nation-wide as well as become a clinical licensed social worker as a trauma-informed therapist. This requires a lot of my time and attention. I am hoping to graduate July, 2017.

Lots of teenagers means lots of cars! We have three girls in college now, all driving, so there is a need for many more parking spaces. Between visitors, the girls, their friends and boyfriends, the front yard can be a muddy mess from people parking on the grass. Our next project is to stabilize the grass with a special material used for parking spaces in which grass is planted on top of heavy duty material which allows cars to park on the grass but prevents erosion and a muddy mess. We are soliciting various companies with a similar product that allows this. We need to raise the money to afford the product and help with installation. I will update when we know more. One company is looking into the cost for us right now. There is often five cars parked, with visitors coming and going.

The family went to Yellowstone National Park in July, 2013. Thank you to everyone who made this trip a possibility, we are very grateful! Everyone but Amanda was able to make it. We flew into Billings, Montanna and drove to Gardiner, Montanna which was our home base. We rented a house for a week. It was the best time! Montanna is so beautiful. We went horseback riding and rafting and lots of hikes and swimming in thermal rivers, etc.
