Train day!

If you couldn't tell, we have a love for trains in our house. While some kids pretend to be superheros, ours chug around the house pretending to be Thomas, Percy and all the crew from Thomas the Train. Our living room is usually covered in tracks, and the oldest reads everything he can get his hands on whether it be model trains or trains in history. So this weekend we headed to the Lake Mary Historical Museum for a special model train collection. Although it was a small museum, they made sure there was something for everyone to do. From model train setups (we found Garry under the exibit with the model maker examining the wiring layout), to coloring pages and crafts for the kids, each kid had a grand time. My favorite part? Free! Can't beat that for a fun day out!

He won a bike!

Ok, so this is old news. He won it back in June at church. But anyway....Congratulations, you no longer have to ride the pink bike!

Bible bee!

Our first year participating in the Bible Bee has gotten off to a slow start. Actually, it has not moved much at all. Until this week. Realizing that this week marks the 1/2 point, we (I) decided it was time to kick it in gear. So, the above picture shows how my entire dining room looks. However, we are progressing! In order to participate, each contestant must memorize verses (Shelby about 200, Garry 400) and also be familiar enough with 1 Peter to be able to answer questions. IF we continue the pace, we just might make it! We'll keep you posted!
