Trials and tribulations

Today I am sitting here wondering why kids say and do some things. Jman said something that got him suspended for 2 days. I am not sure where he got it, or why he would say it. I surely don't understand why he said it when he did.

Just keep me in your thoughts and prayers as we go thru a few struggles.

A father wanted to read a magazine, but was being bothered by his little girl, Shelby. She wanted to know what the United States looked like. Finally, he tore a sheet out of his news magazine on which was printed the map of the country. Tearing it into small pieces, he gave it to Shelby and said, "Go into the other room and see if you can put this together. This will show you our whole country today." After a few minutes, Shelby returned to her Dad and handed him the map, correctly fitted and taped together. The father was surprised and asked how she had finished so quickly. "Oh," she said, "on the other side of the paper is a picture of Jesus. When I got all of Jesus back where He belonged, then our country just came together."

I got that the above as an email and liked it so much I wanted to share it. Sometimes when the puzzles are too much for us, we need to just flip the paper over...and focus on the real stuff.

History Abounds

So we had the great pleasure of getting to meet up with some friends from FL this weekend. They were up on their spring break and were exploring history in the Williamsburg area. We joined them for lunch and a quick romp at the Yorktown Battlefield.

What a race!

So here is the Jman after "winning" his first "official" race. He was however one of the kids who got to be the first EVER kids to race around the monument. It was a cooler and wet day.

My race was a tough one for me. I wasn't ready but was determined to finish the race. I did it, even if the clock didn't register me.
