Grandma's Visit...

Oh are also posted on Flickr from when Grandma was here and we had bunches of fun at the lake!! Check 'em out.

Some Updates.

We stayed in Little Rock on Friday night...we spared no expense..hehe! Yeah right! It looks like a nice hotel on the outside of the building....that is about the only positive thing I can say about it. Let's see....there was a burn hole, more than likely cigarette induced, on the blanket on MY bed! It was a non-smoking floor...anyway, a couple little spots of stained blood or something on a pillowcase, and the wall mounted hair dryer blew up in my hand. Okay, it didn't actually blow up, but it rotated very slowly and then turned bright red and smoked more than a trucker. The entire room was engulfed in stink from the blow dryer drama. It was a great night!

The kids and I went to the Discovery museum in Little Rock on Saturday and had a really fun time. Pictures on flickr. We also went to the local mall and checked out the three story Dillards!! Neato!

School starts tomorrow and we are gearing up for that. We are both a little stressed out (David and myself). Gotta go and finish my lesson plans for the week. Will let you know how our first week goes. David will be back to blogging for some creative writing stay tuned!

A Visit From Grandma.

Grandma came to visit us for a few days and we had a great time. We went to the lake and had a picnic lunch and then went back the following day and rented a boat. It was a beautiful weekend and we couldn't have asked for a better time.

Thanks for coming to see us, Grandma!

Church At Our House.

On Sunday, when we were getting ready for church, the boys decided that all of their webkinz needed something to do while we were away. They decided if we were going to go learn about Jesus that the webkinz should have the same opportunity.

They lined up several webkinz that made up the choir, put a webkinz on the pulpit for the preacher, and finally filled the pews with the rest of the stuffed animals. It was very cute.

The sermon of the day was about Noah and his ark. I overheard "the preacher" discussing how Noah was condemned and laughed at because he was building such an absurd structure and that he was a faithful servant of the Lord. I listened to most of the sermon and it was great to hear that not all of what we teach them goes in one ear and out the other! They are great kiddos!

Now if all of their playtime could be that wholesome...yeah right, they are boys!
