Meet Rocky

Alex has been asking for a bearded dragon for a long time, (several kids at church have one). Yesterday, a friend called to ask if they could give their bearded dragon to Alex. Rocky came to live with us last night.

Sunset Park

We have not been to Sunset Park in a very long time. It has been completely redone. I like the fake nature theme they have. It is very big and very crowded and way too easy to lose track of your kids. At one point Sabrina got out of sight and tried to cross the monkey bars. She fell and bruised up her face.

Alex had to prove his daring and skill by crossing the rope bridge the hard way. He did it! He was so happy that he had lots of kids to play with.

I think the giant swings were the kids' favorite part of the playground. They learned about taking turns because they weren't the only ones who felt that way.

Here's proof that I was there.

Of course, with a crowd this size Frank could not resist witnessing to as many people as he could.

We spent hours there and the kids could have spent several more, if we let them.

Home Bible Study

One of the highlights of our week is the Friday Night Home Bible Study. These Bible Studies have not only helped us learn about God's Word, but they have also helped create a sense of community. We have met a lot of our neighbors through the Bible Studies and have gotten to know some members of our church better.


New Beds!

We used our tax refund to get new beds for us and Alex.

Alex was super excited when his loft bed was delivered. I am glad that he now has a desk and shelves for his Lego creations.

Our bed was delivered in a box, so Frank and the kids put it together last night. (Thankfully, Alex's bed was a floor model so they put it together for us.)

Our bedroom is a work in progress. I got the curtains for Christmas. I spent some of my babysitting money on the slipcovers. My next project is the computer desk in our room.


Modge Podge

I used Modge Podge for the first time yesterday.

 I used some cheap gift boxes that I got from the dollar store and some wrapping paper.

I love the way they turned out. I have plans for more modge podge projects that I'll share later.


MLK Park

Last week I took the three kids to MLK Park. It has been a long time since we've been to this park. They got rid of the sand- which was one of my kids' favorite parts. They had fun any way.

Fremont Street Experience

Last Thursday John and I went to Fremont Street to preach. We brought a small amp and got hundreds of passer-bys and some great one-on-one witnesses. Cat-in-the-Hat got a tract, Elvis tried to get me to reject God and John spoke to a young man that wept for his sin. Also, we met evangelists from two different ministries. All in all it was an awesome night. The place we found was a good fishing hole.

Harvest Time

I was given the opportunity to minister on Sunday night. The topic was: Harvest Time. There is a limited amount of time for the harvest. Then the crop is ready is when it needs to be brought it. The harvest will not wait for us to be ready. The harvest is all-important, our very survival depends upon it. It does not matter what your vocation or calling, but all must stop their pursuits and quite literally their lives in order to harvest so that all will survive.

Teaching Sunday School

Sabrina is super excited that I am starting to teach her Sunday School class. Yesterday was my first day teaching the preschool and kindergarten class. I had a lot of fun. We are going to have a lot of fun and learn alot.

The kids also loved my assistant; the Green Hippo.


Flamingo Arroyo Trail

On Saturday we walked the Flamingo Arroyo Trail. It's a trail near our house that we've never walked before.


Climbing Trees

Before we joined Frank on outreach Saturday, the kids had fun climbing trees in the church parking lot.
