Our week in Iowa

Relaxing around the campfire, going out to eat, shelling the corn that Papa, Daddy, Allyson, and Kaleb gleaned from the fields, cutting down a dead apple tree, and Papa's new cocker spaniel puppy. :)

Hard at Work

Here's a picture of Eric that was on the news for this manhunt. It was also in the Jacksonville newspaper.

Thanks for the shampoo money!

This is about one fourth of the post cards, letters and post it notes that I got from daddy and mama when I was at college. While looking through some of the letters I found a five dollar bill that had a post it note on it that said this from daddy, "Here is some shampoo $. It sure was good to hear from you the other day. This sem. is just about over. You are just about a junior! I love you-stay focused. I'm proud of you, love daddy." It was those notes that kept me going. I am almost sure that I kept it in there so that I would find it years later. And I did!

H.E.D.G.E. - Home Educators Developing Godly Examples

We had our monthly H.E.D.G.E. meeting today. Above is a group of 3 - 8 year olds singing a song before going to separate classes. Trisha and I taught the 5-8 year olds, and I had such a good time. The kids were a blast! We had a great day together of learning, eating lunch, and making crafts.
