Where The Orange Blossoms Grow....

Hello! Welcome to the Stricklen's blog. We hope to keep our family and friends up to date with what is going on with our family. You will find a variety of experiences posted here -- you may find pictures of the never ending project of building our house, Callie helping William with his first steps, Mary studying a rare insect species, or perhaps you may be terribly bored with Molly's numerous fruit trees, berries, vegetables and rare plant pictures! Who knows what we may find Chris and CJ doing -- probably something having to do with a tractor or machine of sorts. Abby and Margaret will keep us entertained with costumes from other lands or a fairy story. Whatever we post, we trust it will lift your spirits and bring honor and glory to our Lord!

Hey, y'all

Hey, y'all! Sorry we haven't posted in a while. On Sunday night, everyone came over for volleyball, and then Daddy and Uncle Eddie went to get pizza for everyone, and we all watched a movie! On Monday we went to our wonderful, patient Grandmother's house for art, Latin, Spanish and music practice. Here are a few pictures of Mama's beloved fruit trees. Several of our fruit trees have produced fruit this year. We had LOTS of sweet and juicy peaches, YUM! :) about 5 big pears, lots of mulberries, 2 avacados, 2 very sweet and delicious mangos (Well, delicious in some people's opinion:) and about 30 or 40 little, tiny bananas.
