  3. I am SOOO with you on the whitewater rafting! We need to have a reunion trip! Do you still have the pic from our 1993 excursion?

  4. Leah – sorry it took me a while:) I’m slow. Kristin – thank you for the encouragement! your testimony really hit home with me for that reason. i’m so glad you guys jumped. i pray we will have the courage to do the same when it’s time. Alison – YAY!!!!!!!!!!!! you really want to go? i loved that trip! it would be so much fun. i’m sure mandy would be up for it. can you believe that was um – maybe 12 years ago? i do still have that pic somewhere:)

  5. Kristin, Oh I loved that list! How fun. Its crazy though your 8 wishes other then 2 and 3:) are mine as well how crazy. We really need to get together! Just wish my kids would stay healthy long enough:)

  6. sorry kristin… but how to boil water is a show???~me~

  7. i wish i had some sort of space on the interwebs that was my own so i could complain about how i wasnt asked to list things simply because i dont have a blog. assuming thats the reason.

  8. Kristin, I’m all for going whitewater rafting this summer. I definitely think you could get a group organized for that sort of thing. I’ve always wanted to do that but haven’t gotten to yet.Did the 8 lists on my blog. Thanks for playing tag 🙂
