A Little Bit of This...And That

Too much to blog about! Could I have about 43 hours of uninterrupted time and an unlimited supply of coffee? Please?

I have gotten to the point where I love to chronicle our life almost as much as I love to collect my thoughts and get them written down. I have always been sentimental but never organized enough to journal and store our memories in a special way. Blogging has done that for me and I know it blesses our family, near and far....cause they tell me so :)

Then there are the thoughts. And oh, have mercy do they come a-floodin' in! I have decided that for my homeschool essay, I will write about it as it comes. Bit by bit. The same way the Lord revealed it to me. I am totally overwhelmed...burdened even...with the truth about our responsibility in regard to raising them and educating them in the Word. I am compelled to get it out. I also have some serious thoughts on evangelism. Not just the "how not to's" but the "how to's". I know lost people. I just don't want to know lost people. Was that too honest? More on that later. I have Spider-man, the achilles tendon, hair-cuts, popsicles, and so much more to purge from this peanut brain.

For now, I plan on just trying to catch up the friends & family with the events of the past couple of weeks. Fun stuff!

These are the remaining pic's and videos from Spring Break. Did I mention that we had a mighty fine time? Well...we did.

We went to Busch Gardens in Williamsburg with our two families and their kiddos. A clan. Maybe a mob. Either way, we were a bunch of people with a bunch of children and it was good-time fun. Here are some pics:

Darling Daughter...

Another Darling Daughter...

Here's our clan moseying through the crowd. See the guy in the yellow and blue striped shirt? He's our pastor. He is a blessing to our lives and to our church. He is an expositional preacher. He is all about the gospel...teaching it....preaching it. He is a humble man of God who places the highest priority on being a husband and father.

He is also a certified froot loop.

Here are the little fella's about to take flight.

The train ride! The children were spillin' over the side. We had wagon's and strollers and buggies...15 people in all and we managed to shove politely wait our turn for the second train. I think the people there thought we were either Mormon or obnoxious. The latter was mostly true.

Bring on the good times! Please notice the Froot Loop in the striped-shirt. He can translate Greek with the best of 'em.

Okay. Let me set this clip up for you. Small stage in the middle of a "Make-Believe European Country." Irish music is playing in the background. Pay very close attention to my boy and his unique ability to combine The River Dance with The Break Dance. It's cutting edge folks. Seriously.

Then you should notice the little guy in the turquoise shirt. That... is Froot Loop's boy. The apple didn't fall very far. That's all I'm sayin'.

The littlest midget-man belongs to my dear friend Dusty. He's a little younger so he is in the froot loop "learning stage". There is such a thing.

That was so much fun! Thanks for making me feel like I was THERE!

Oh my gosh- your little guy dancing was the cutest thing. He was totally into it and not gonna break stride, no matter what those other two "fruit loops" might do:-)

Looks like another great day of spring break. How nice that you seems to fellowship with your church family on days other than Sunday- what blessing!

Thanks so much for your comments on my blog expressing my desire to stay home. I appreciate it so much and would love to hear how you transitioned from 2 incomes to one. I tried to email you, but think it may not have gone through. Thanks again for your comments and encouragement!

Kim, you crack me up! I sympathize with you on needing several days uniterupted to blog! I have all these thoughts running through my head, but then don't have time to write them out. The post on my church history took almost a month for me to write!

Looking forward to your essay on homeschooling, even if it takes you a month too!
