Welcome....Here's a glimpse of our happenings!

The verses that have REALLY spoken to me (Sarah) lately....

"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock." Matthew 7:24-25

Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings. I Peter 5:8-9

From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us. For in him we live and move and have our being. As some of your own poets have said, 'We are his offspring.' Acts 17:26-28

May the words of my mouth and the mediation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock, and my Redeemer. Psalm 19:14

So be careful to do what the Lord your God has commanded you; do not turn aside to the right or to the left. Walk in all the way that the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess. Deuteronomy 5:32-33

God, our God, will take care of the hidden things but the revealed things are our business. It's up to us and our children to attend to all the terms in this Revelation. Deuteronomy 29:29 (The Message)

This past Christmas, we gave Luke a tricycle as a gift.

Luke didn't get much riding in over the rest of the winter and early spring.

Finally, however, Luke's gotten some riding in. He's doing quite well, and if I do say so myself, he's pretty cute with it.

Last week, Luke's friends, Oliver & Lily, came over while their mother (and father) was at the hospital to get her sonogram -- the routine sonogram in the middle of pregnancy where gender can be determined (if the baby is positioned correctly).

It was SUPER nice out that day. So, we all spent the majority of their time here outside.

Now, Luke knows our neighbors, Willis & Joan, quite well, and Luke LOVES to go over there and talk to them.

Willis & Joan are not only parents but are also grandparents AND great-grandparents. So, they have quite a bit of experience with children.

Over the course of time, Oliver & Lily, have also learned to like to go over there and talk with Willis and Joan.

That particular morning, Willis walked outside to do some yard work.

I THOROUGHLY enjoyed watching all three children (Luke, Oliver, and Lily) RUN over there to talk with Willis....I quickly grabbed the camera and snapped a few pics.

I'm truly not sure what all they talked about with Willis, but I'm sure Willis was entertained.

(And yes, Luke AND Oliver both have their bike helmets on....)
