Beach Bible School

Henry attended VBS (Vacation Bible School) a couple of weeks ago at the church my mom attends. There was a beach theme and he really enjoyed it. He came home singing some of the catchy tunes - "Surfin' through the Scriptures" and "Beach Be-attitudes" were favorites.
He listened carefully to the stories they told him and he was able to partially recite them when he came home. Unsure exactly what he was taking away, as a 3 year old, I asked him if they talked about God in Bible School. "No" he answered.
He did take away some of the lessons whether he agrees with them or not - yesterday he proclaimed - "Mama, sometimes I do not love my neighbor". Well - at least he knows you should!?!
Maybe next summer - "Hiking to the Promised Land" - who knows?

Sleepy story

Last night after reading bedtime stories, Henry kept emphasizing how NOT tired he was. He then started trying to tell me a story that went something like this -

"Sometimes people paint horses (pause, pause)
I am too tired to tell this story." (sounds of sleeping)

A Flurry of Blogging

Finally, the blogging spirit has hit Rachel and me over the head today - be sure to scroll down to see all the new stuff. First off is a video of Claudia being cute and expanding her vocabulary.

Gardening, splashing around, climbing trees, working on the laptop... ahh, to be young again!

Howling Nellie

At the cool wine/beer shop at Topsail there was a bloodhound who had quite a voice - she sang along with a harmonica.


Ok - no excuse for the lack of postings this summer. Here is a smattering of pictures of beach, home, friends.

Plus some shots of the DC trip later added by Dan
