Going on Road Trip

I am taking the kids with me to a convention in New Mexico and then we are going to hang out for a few days in Sante Fe. Scott is not coming with us - he 's busy working, somebody has to. Anyway, as I was driving, it suddenly hit me that I am taking the kids on a working road trip without back up! Oh good heavens, what was I thinking? It is the first time we've gone this far without Daddy. I think this might be a real test of how the kids are doing with each other,with independence and with making the wise choice. There are going to be several days that they are going to have to handle themselves under scrutiny from others and hopefully they will rise to the occasion. I think they will do fine but in the back of my mind the is a little voice that is telling me that I might be crazy. I'll let you know how it goes in a few days....

Day of Worship

In our family ministry service this week we had a Day of Worsgip where we learned to worship God for who He is and what He has done for us. The opening video was written and directed by very talented staff at our church. I am showing for two reasons. One, because Caileigh and Collin are in it and two, the message of the video is one of the reasons that I am so passionate about being involved in Children's Ministry and homeschooling - the message that we are to continually bring our kids to the feet of Jesus.
