Texarkana State Line Found - Finally!

When DD1 was about 1 year old, husband and I visited Texarkana to find the state line that divides Texas and Arkansas. Unfortunately we were unable to find the state line then.

All praise be to Allah SWT, yesterday we brought DD1, DD2 and DS to visit the same place and we found the state line this time.

Last Thursday, my dear sister drove down from Ohio with her two kids to visit us. All praise be to Allah SWT they arrived safely. While she was here, she made kimchi, organized my kids' clothes, helped me to rearrange bedroom furniture and watched the Korean drama 'Secret Garden' with me. I am so thankful that we had the opportunity to talk, laugh and cry about our lives together.

On Friday morning, she and I drove our five kids to Benton, Arkansas. Along the way, we stopped by President Bill Clinton's hometown, Hope. Husband drove to meet us at the hotel after work.

My dear sister and her kids left on Saturday morning and arrived home in the evening. All praise be to Allah SWT she arrived there safely. I really admire her stamina to drive 11 hours straight from Arkansas to Ohio. She is an amazing and strong person, and I am blessed to have her as my sister.
