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)

Today -- Seemingly the End of Fall....

I'm About 1 1/2 weeks ago, Luke checked out a nonfiction book from his school's library about airplanes & such.  That evening he checked it out, my parents just so happened to be here.  My dad is a science teacher.  In fact, for over 30 years, he taught high school chemistry & physics.  SO, this nonfiction book thrilled both Luke and my dad (aka "Papa Andover").

After looking through the book, my dad mentioned to me that there were a few experiments in this book AND that he had some other experiments Luke would like.  My dad suggested that before the book was due, the kiddos & I should come over one day after picking up Luke from the bus stop (just one more reason I love 1/2 day kindergarten).  Well, today was that day!

So, after the bus arrived with some cute kindergartners, the kiddos & I headed to my parents' house.  The day, up until about 4:00 this afternoon, was windy but decently warm. Around 4:00ish or so, a cold front moved in, and the temperature went south in a hurry.  The wind also picked up even more.  SO, knowing the forecast, we picked up lunch at "Subway".  We went & ate at a park, and then, the kiddos had time to play one last time outside (at least for this week).

And, true to Kate's personality, she was telling us "No" very loudly.  "Why," you might ask?  Who knows!  It's just Kate, and though we love her immensely, sometimes, her antics are annoying -- Ha!

Kate took a bit to get brave enough to go down this slide.  I'm not sure why it scared her so much, but it did.  She ended up liking it!

After we got back to my parents' house, Kate went down for a nap, and Luke & his Papa Andover started experimenting.  I could most definitely not explain to you everything they did, but I know Luke had some smiles.  Overall, I'd say it was a good day and worth our time!

And then, to top it all off, the electricity went out at Marc's office.  So, he got to leave work early!  Since my parents live a lot closer to the city Marc works than we do, Marc & I decided to make an impromptu supper trip to "Red Robin" as a family!  Woo-Hoo!!!!

And then, because it's now SO much colder than earlier today, my two favorite guys (Marc & Luke) brought in firewood and started a fire in our fireplace once we got home!

(And, you can tell that we have a little girl living here based on the fact that a pink doll stroller is in the center of our family room.  BUT, I wouldn't have it any other way)!
