The latest edition to the CasaDeVerno

    The CasaDeVerno has had an invasion!     We received our new couch this afternoon!  It is WONDERFUL!  Considering it is replacing a couch that a friend gave me.  It was in his garage, I mean… an actual garage.  He worked on VW vans, etc.  After cleaning it and de-greasing it, it was a nice […]

I was just surfing and thought I would check up on Friends…

    A girl we met at our 1st visit to KKI, Anna Maria, is still battling her "condition".  The local paper published an article about her on May 2nd.  It was titled, "Digestive disorder makes mealtimes tough for girl".  Check it out here:  http://helpcureanamaria.blogspot.com/     Makes you think about the families that are going through […]

What’s been happening since KKI

    By the look of things, I know you are all thinking that I had something to do with this… Well, I can say with a CLEAR CONSCIENCE… It was Aunt Ali!  Although I do love a good read… Our former Pastor once said, "The bathroom tends to be a PRAYER CLOSET of many"… Talk […]

Happy Birthday Novalea!

    Well, I truly can’t believe it… Novalea is 2 today!  She is such a CUTIE!  I am definitely biased, but I think I am "dead on" on this one!     She really is accelerating her learning.  She is saying more things… Saying FUNNIER things at that as well!  Getting into more trouble.  She is […]

Happy Birthday Novalea!

2 years going on 13!     It’s hard to imagine that Novalea is turning 2 years old.  She is growing into such a beautiful girl.  She had a blast today at the Park.  Devon (we) had a small party with Novalea & Devon’s TotLot Playgroup!  It was fun.  Novalea loves the park and loves to […]

Sorry for the “Lack of Blogging”

    It’s been a different experience at KKI this month.  Last time we had Novalea stay with Grandma & Aunt Ali.  The nice thing was time to spend with Devon and Irelyn…also I was able to update/post more regularly.  But the "aftermath" of that experience was almost UNBEARABLE!  It took Novalea some time to get […]

The Road to KKI is ALWAYS interesting…

    OK… Finally some quiet time to get some posting/blogging done about our latest adventure so far!     For me, the trip started Tuesday after my LOVELY field trip to the Whitaker Center in Harrisburg.  Devon’s trip started Monday night:  planning the packing and beginning, etc.      Our morning on Wednesday started pretty normal… You […]
