Les Miserables and My First Car (Two Wildly Exciting, Yet Unrelated Things)

Hello, All! How are you? I’ve had quite an exciting week. Over the weekend, we got to attend Les Miserables with some friends at the Peace Center in Greenville. It was a breathtaking performance. The sets were unbelievable and the scene changes were flawless. I loved it. Since this was an event we got to dress up for, I’d love to share some photos of our spiffy-looking crew! Now, for […]

A Conference Called INBOUND

Howdy, What’ve you been up to? Yesterday, I had the amazing chance to attend my first conference about inbound marketing! It’s called INBOUND17 and roughly 20,000 people have been attending (the conference isn’t over until tomorrow). The atmosphere is almost like a party, with food trucks and adult swings and blaring lights and music. I enjoyed the unique experience and wanted to share some photos! What was one thing that […]

Ten Words A Week – Week 1

Hi, there! What’ve you been up to today? The Cummins kids are in possession of a new learning assignment: to write a list of ten words and their meanings each week. The words can come from things we’ve heard, books we’re reading, and occasionally a dictionary or thesaurus. (I say occasionally because the main point is learning words in the real world.) After the list is amassed, we are expected […]

A Ferry, A Camper, A Family

Hi, there! We rode a ferry over Lake Champlain last Saturday. We started in New York and finished in Grand Isle, Vermont. (I didn’t know until the ferry ride that Vermont owns an island!) From there, we drove into the rest of Vermont by bridge. The ride only lasted fifteen minutes, but it was such fun. The reason I wanted to share is that we took our camper, too! (Which […]

After A Hitch In The Giddy-Up, We’re On The Road Again

We were driving along in a sleepy little town on Sunday when our truck put up the words “trailer brakes disconnected.” As Dad started pulling off the road, the lady behind us rolled down her window and told us something was smoking. Sure enough, our camper’s wheel bearings burned right off. God caused a lot of kind people to help us, and we ended up getting towed and boon docking […]

Niagara Falls and a Poem

Hi, Folks! How are you? We’re in the truck, driving to Wilmington, New York. I’d love to share a quick free-verse I wrote about a sunset I saw while we were driving through Pennsylvania (before Pennsylvania becomes too far away). There were dark rain clouds contrasting with a glowing sunset. I took a little poetic license to increase the drama. Pennsylvania Sky The world lay sleeping beneath a leaden blanket […]

Fallingwater

Hi, Folks, How are you? We embarked yesterday on another Cummins Crew camping adventure! This one’s North-bound, with much cooler temps. We drove eleven and a half hours yesterday, which makes today’s six hour ride seem smooth and breezy. We’re heading to Buffalo, New York, today to see Niagra Falls (I’m writing this in the truck on my handy new WordPress app!) Our family just finished a fascinating tour of […]
