Persimmons as early as September


For the second year now, we are enjoying some Persimmon bounty from our organic backyard. It actually is a little early this year to be harvesting and enjoying the fruits of the husband’s labor but hey, why not? This tree is one of the 20 Persimmon trees we have and this is the most abundant.

When I looked back to four years ago, that is, before we moved to Texas, I never could imagine that we would be growing Persimmons and other fruit trees here in Texas. Of course, we didn’t know that God would bring us to this place. All we did was prayed and asked and He provided. I think wherever we are, the farmer in us will always come out. Our dream before was just to be able to plant Moringa and lemon grass but after living here in Texas, we were able to plant more.

God is good! All the time!

Meet the Teachers Day


Today has been fun for the entire family. We headed off to Triz’s new school which is the Keene ISD and met her incoming 6th Grade Teachers. Guess who’s excited? Actually, we all do. From Daddy to Mommy to Big Sister Triz to Little T. That’s right, it feels like we are starting all over again from scratch! And, we are up for it!!!Image may contain: 3 people, people smiling, outdoor

Triz, after turning 11 years old last July 4th, is so very excited for what Keene ISD can offer. As an exemplary campus, I don’t have all major reasons to doubt the academic programs this school has but at the same time, she is only 11 years old. I don’t have to offer her huge things to accomplish because she is only a child.

Well, school starts this Thursday so it will be a fun day for her and us! How about you, friends? Have you been enjoying school so far?
