Perch Pond 2008

In this little town of Benson, VT, near Fair Haven, lies a little 20-something acre pond. We were able to spend a week here with my mother and my brother and his kids. These photos don’t document the entire week (don’t want to overrun your bandwidth), but I hope it’ll give you a taste. Josh, if you read this, I will get you a CD with all the pictures soon. And I will post more pictures, after I have touched them up a bit.

Grandma read lots of books to the kids, who listened intently.

Hopefully Jen won't have a heart attack when she sees what I let the kids do. You have to kind of tilt your head to the right to see this photo properly.

    Looks like a very fun time! I’ve never heard of Benson (oh, those small New England towns.) I’ve never heard of “efts” either ::shudder:: Great pics!

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]
