Rachel's vacation

Hey it is me Rachel again. This time I am going to tell you about my vacation. Me and my family went to Kalahari. It's in Ohio there is one in Wisconsin but we didn't go to that one. There is a GINORMOUS water park it said it was Americas largest indoor water park. I went on almost every water slide. There was one that went around in a spinning circle I went on it with my mom and she cried. I don't blame her it was scary. There was an outdoor water park but it was to cold to go out and play out there. It didn't look as cool though. Also there was a big giant yellow slide and it went outside my brother Brenden said it was his favorite thing in the park. There was also a zip coast0er when you frist lift off it is freaky but it is fun. The wave pool is fun but the life gaurds were a little whistle happy. Also are room was HUGE and it had flat screen tvs in each room awsome isn't it. There is a lot more but if you want to know about it you should go there. Good bye! God bless you!

Learning to Be Content (Katie)

Today, I went to woman's Bible Study. We are study the book of Hebrews. Today's discussion was on Hebrews 12:1-3. " 1Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. 2Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. " WOW, isn't that an awesome passage of scripture. So, motivating, encouraging, and powerful. We talked about the things that hinder us, and I remembered something that the Lord gave to me a few months back. You see my biggest hindrances tend to be in my mind. Those thoughts that are not so HOLY. Sometimes those thoughts leak out,and then they not only discourage me, but others. especially, my kids. The Lord told me a few months back that I needed to stop Seeing things in the wrong light. Stop Complaining, Comparing, Criticizing, and Coveting. I needed to Start Being the woman he made me to Be. By Blessing, Believing, Belonging, and Building Up. I don't know about you, but I think that is a great way to learn to be Content, and to teach it to our children. I have to tell you, I have not mastered this list, or even come close to fully understanding how God does these things in our lives. But, I am trusting him to do it.
So, here's the recap:
Stop Complaining (Phil. 2:14) Start Blessing (1 Cor. 4:12)
Stop Comparing (Gal. 6:4) Start Belonging (Eph. 4:6)
Stop Criticizing (Luke 6:37) Start Building Up (Eph. 4:29)
stop Coveting (Ex. 20:17) Start Believing (2 Tim. 1:12)

May God encourage you with these words.

My family vacation

Hey it is Daniel again I want to tell you about my family vacation. We went to Ohio. There we went to Kalahari the Indoor water park it is the biggest water in America. It was fun they had a hot tub in side and out it was cool. They had big rides. They had yellow, blue, purple, orange, and green too. I went on the big yellow, and the blue one. They let you pretend you can surf. They had hotel rooms, we were on the third floor it was a long way. Mom said it was a good exercise. The tv's were flat screen tv's how cool is that.

Tyler's Rabbit Snowball Gone

Hi, It`s Tyler again. I`m really sad because my pet rabbit Snowball just died. We don`t know why he died he had food, water, a warm bed of hay, and was a young bunny. My mom said he probably had a stroke or heart attack. I still have a bunny named Buggies its a girl bunny. I still miss Snowball a lot. Mom says I can get another bunny in the spring and maybe get it for free. I will take a boy rabbit are a girl. But I really want a girl so they won't have babies. Well then again baby Bunnies would be fun. Well that's all for now. It really helped to right about Snowballs death. Tyler.

Big Water park Hotel

Hi, my names Bekah. We went to a Indoor water park in Ohio. Before we got there we went to a restaurant called Ryans. Are room was the very last room in the big hotel. By the water park was a jungle gym. It was bigger then four McDonald's play place. In the water park I almost went on a big yellow water slid but I got to scared. But I did go on some of the smaller slides. Before, you even see the jungle gym out side the water park there's an arcade. On the first day, we played in the arcade. The hotel is an African theme and is called Kalahari. The hotel was fun. That's all for now. Bekah

Ugly Shirt

Hi, my name is Jeremy and I am the husband/father of this family. I wanted to tell you a story that gives a little insight to my sense of humor.

It started when my wife showed me these shirts she was thinking about getting my son and I on EBay. They were both radical Hawaiian style shirts, but I thought it might be fun to dress like my son for a day. Later in the week my wife called me at work upset, the shirts had arrived and they were not what she was expecting at all. The one said it was a boys 8/9 and it was a wore out men's medium and the other was a hideously ugly, old set of curtains or maybe a tablecloth, shirt. To try to make my wife feel better I assured her I would wear the ugly thing to work the next day. This just upset her more and said you better not that thing should be burned.

Well the next day I decided to wear the shirt as a joke hoping someone would say something, like "that shirt is a little loud" or "what are you wearing?" To setup my wonderfully funny joke of "this is not a shirt this is a cry out for help, I can't get my wife off of Ebay!!" I know you are thinking that is an awful long way to go just for one lame joke, but that is me.

Well wouldn't you know I went through eight hours of work and an hour long staff meeting, where every one in my department had to look at this hideouly ugly set of old curtains and not one person said anything. So I headed home sure that everybody was laughing as I left, well at least everyone else probably got a good chuckle out of it.

When I walked in the door my wife about fell over with embaresment, and the sheer hideousness of the shirt kept her in stitches throughout the night.

Later as we talked about the events of the day we wondered what was going through my coworkers heads, did they think that I looked nice in the shirt. I assure you that could not have been the case not even the sexiest man alive, even though I am close, would look good in this shirt. So the only other option is they think I always dress this tacky. Well it is a sad state of affairs, but that is my story.
