Speakin of Mississippi

We lived in the town of Purvis, doesn't that sound so gross.
She got so dirty crawling around in the motor home and you know when you thought your kids were so cute and you look back and was like wow she looks really homeless
This is at one of the jobs, they put this mobile home in and had to move so much junk to put it in
She learned to walk in the motor home
Home sweet Home. Don't laugh at the chairs that's how they do it down there all white trash like I had to fit in you know.

So I was thinking I really should journal about our life in Mississippi. We went there in April of 2006 for hurricane relief work with Tyler's uncle Lynn. Tyler had just quite his job and school and we were looking for something to fill our time. So we figured why not, just another adventure to add to the list of life. So we took Kendal’s 1970's motor home that only got like 4 miles to the gallon (no really that's all it got) and made our way there. The motor home was so old and it would back fire a lot and it was so funny driving down neighborhoods and everyone probably thought there was a shooting or something. It took us I think two and a half days to get there. So we get there and an hour latter Tyler goes to work and I was like what in the heck did I get myself into. I was all by myself all day until like 12 that night in a new state and Tyler’s aunt and cousins were out of town. I hated it. But as time went on we had so much fun there the branch was so cute and fun and living in a motor home with Paige, Tyler and I was interesting (she slept between the driver’s seat and the passenger’s seat). I loved it, it was a great time. I will have to say that I am glad to be back in the west, the south is very pretty but there are so many trees and shrub that you can't see a long was and you couldn't see the sun rise or set really. But I will always love the memory of Mississippi and the friends that we still talk to from there. It was amazing to see what the hurricane did.

K, how come no one told me you had a blog?! I seriously was just thinking about you the other day because I helped a girl at the bank I work at and her name was Ali Rogers. I cn't believe you have 3 kids! I guess it's been that long since I've talked to you... probably since high school, huh?! YAY- I'm glad I get to keep in touch with you!
