My Love Story: Part 4
I know, I know - I promised that part 4 would be posted by Valentine's Day. I broke that promise. Both of my boys were sick, so this has been my first opportunity to catch-up on my writing. Now, where were we? Oh yeah! My first memory of Kyle was him scream...

My Love Story: Part 2
Welcome back, readers. If you read last week's entry, you know that basically the only reason I fell for my now husband was because he and his friend, David, saw a "UFO" and filmed their entire conversation about it. I have to pause that story for a moment ...

I write this entry as I have a bacterial eye infection and an eyepatch covering it, so cut me some slack, alright?! Okay. Let's talk about this new Star Wars teaser. (Side note: when are we getting a full trailer? This summer? Come one, JJ, make it happen)....

My Love Story: Part 3
I had met my roommate and soon-to-be best friend, Megan, while auditioning for Chapman's theatre program. We decided that day that if we both got in, we'd be roommates. So unlike many first-time college goers, I actually knew who my roomie would be. It took...

Story

My full time job is in education, but fun time job is crafting and adventuring.
Introduction

My name is Erin and I currently live in Missouri. Confused? Well, I grew up in Kansas, but I live in Kansas City, MO. Did you know there was a Kansas City, Kansas AND a Kansas City, Missouri AAAAND that they are right next to each other? Well, it's true.

I grew up in a small community called Argentine, Kansas. The neighborhood was built on a former Shawnee Indian Reservation. There are several landmarks that largely go unnoticed these days. The house I grew up in sits adjacent to a wooded area where a fresh water creek runs through - there is a monument there in honor of a Shawnee prophet whose relative, Susan Whitefeather, sold my family their land. 

I grew up in the house that my great grandfather built in the late 1800's. Its foundation is a large oak tree. No joke. In my parents' house basement, a large oak tree holds up the house. Seriously. (Side note: I have done a lot of ancestry study - more to come on that later!)

I don't know much about it, but apparently there was a silver smeltery in Argentine years ago and that was much of the reason why the community thrived. Argentine is also the largest rail yard in the United States and experiences the most rail traffic in the country. Crazy, huh?

I write all this to describe how I grew up - the sound of trains always in the background, playing in the woods and creek, and running across forgotten landmarks. I like to say my sister and I richly experienced a vibrant piece of Kansas history on a daily basis.

Bragging rights
I grew up in an awesome neighborhood, have the most amazing family and the BEST husband.
