Wow! I didn't realize how you birthed your children. I would LOVE to hear more about those!!!

Where did you go to college?

Have fun on your cruise! Where's it headed?

Hey we have some things in common. I had three of our four children at home and our first at a birthing center too. Lovely experience isn't it.

4th Gen. Christ follower - that is just amazing! No wonder you have the foundation you do - and your kids - 5th generation! God is truly Good!

Piano and vocal major? Now, that's impressive.

Robin Meadows said...

Hey, thanks guys----but I still want to know some unknown facts about you!

A little more info: I went to OBU--Dirk graduated, I didn't.

Cruising from San Diego to Acapulco and two other ports on Carnival Spirit.

piano and vocal major--my mom was/is a vocal and piano instructor with a degree from OU. Still a passion of mine.

4th gen Christ-follower--it's a blessing that's hard to believe! I'll share more about it later.
