Living Room Camp-Out

We were once again disappointed by the weather and had to cancel a trip we’d been looking forward to. I was in a really bad mood about it. Finally the grace of God snapped me out of it, and I decided to make the most of our weekend at home.

The kids and I made a “campfire” with some blocks and colored paper constructed around an upside-down stool, and set up their tents in the living room. We invited a friend.

After dinner we made s’mores (thanks for the supplies, Lisa!) in the microwave and sat around the campfire.

We slept in our campsite all night. I had intended to be on the couch till the kids went to sleep, then get up and do dishes, etc. You can guess what happened. I fell asleep and the next thing I knew it was 4:30. Oh well.

My blog. Herein read entries related to who and what is important to me. Feel free to leave comments. I feel free to delete them if I don't like them. So there. By reading about my life, readers should expect to begin to see their own lives as increasingly more organized and sophisticated, their homes cleaner and neater.

Why This Blog?

Well, mostly this is for my family to see pictures and read anecdotes about the kids. It's also a venue for telling the story of my struggles and victories in my life as a Christian, a wife, a mother, and a teacher. Occasionally I toss in some weird or touching item that I've found.

What’s Christianity All About?

The Gospel is the news that Jesus Christ, the Righteous One, died for our sins and rose again, eternally triumphant over all his enemies, so that there is now no condemnation for those who believe, but only everlasting joy. [as said by John Piper]
