The Son is always shining, regardless of the weather

Cool Science Site

Our sweet friends at Co-op introduced us to this cool website. We have been doing “cool labs” (labs which cause the students to say, “Cool!”) at Co-op, and we have seen and tried some of these experiments. Two of my favorites are the hot-air balloon, and the awesome gliders. Tonight, we tried acorn cap whistling…and […]

Happy B-day, Dad!

My dad is one of those men who isn’t afraid to try anything, and he isn’t afraid to share new wisdom that he gains along life’s way. I love those qualities about him. Recently, one of my dad’s life experiences  involved trying new things (like a roasted jalapeno…pronounced ha-la-pain-yo), and learning new things. (You are […]

Strawberry Picking

Believe it or not, we were wearing jackets when we went strawberry picking last week (April 27)!  On a day like this…simple pleasures…who would want to check their cell phone, right? Well, Paige has more to say about our day in her post. What a “berry” nice day it was! We had a lovely time […]

We Did It!

“The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.”        Isaiah 40:8 Earlier…back on January 5, we attempted to read through the Bible, as a family, for 90 days. Well, it took us 100 days, but by God’s grace…we did it, and it was such a blessing to our […]

The Living Last Supper

The Sunday before Easter, we visited the church where Nana attends (with Nana), and we were blessed by a presentation of a living Last Supper. It gave a glimpse into the heart of each one of the twelve disciples, who were gathered around that table for the Passover. They were asking themselves deep questions regarding […]

Some Flowery Language

One spring afternoon, when my daughter Faith was about three years old, we were driving down the access road (the same one which is pictured above). As I looked to my left, I delightfully exclaimed, “Ooh! Look at all those blue bonnets!” Faith gently piped in “…and yellow bonnets too, Momma!”:) Here in Texas, the […]

The Quilt Is Finished!

The other evening, a dear and industrious friend (you will soon discover why I refer to her this way) called me. Our conversation went something like this: My Industrious Friend: “CC, Do you have time to talk?” (This question is always appreciated by me. Sometimes there are better time slots to talk on the phone […]

Bible DVDs That We Love

As we entered 2010, Brad and I were both led to increase our “Family Bible Reading Time”. There was a lot of movie watching over our holiday break, and I knew we needed more Bible time…as a family. So, I prayed that BC would be led in this way too, because he primarily leads our […]

Our List of Games That We Love to Play:

One of my favorite memories of growing up in my home was playing games together. We just returned from a lovely Thanksgiving with my parents and brother, and we still enjoy playing games together! I have found most of my games at thrift stores, book swaps, etc. One year for Christmas, our family decided to […]

Unbelievably Unbreakable, Huh?

I was combing through an old purse and I found a comb which had the words : “unbreakable” embossed on the side. I thought, Yep…it still has all of it’s teeth. Then, a hair-brained thought broke into my childish brain…”Is it really unbreakable? How unbreakable is it?” So, I tried to bend it. Just as […]
