This is my simple photo journal. I like to take pictures and once a month or more, I load them onto this blog so that we can remember some of our family highlights.


Table Topics

About 2 years ago, Tom came back from a golf trip with this little gift of "family table topics."

Some of the cards we just laugh at and put aside. However, most questions I am really interested in hearing everybody answer. They require some thought and more than a yes or no answer. Oh, and Tom and I can also sneak in a little teaching moment, undetected. You can find this same family topic cube at
