We had a great sermon today about how God is watching, caring, and thinking about us at all times. To think that God is actually thinking about us all the time is mind blowing! What a great God we serve.
I just changed my blogger background to fit the upcoming season.

Leaf Fort

This is so late! You can definitely tell by the pics that this was done a couple weeks ago because all the leaves still have color, where as now, they are all dead and on the ground. This was our first model of the great leaf fort. We made 3 others that got better and bigger every time! One of them was so big, Nathan, Ben and I could lay down full length, and all four of us kids could sit up in it! It was soooo fun while it lasted, but we had to take it down before the Medieval Feast. Dad blew all of the leaves into the woods :(

The Mysterious Islands movie premiere

Late last night my family got back from watching the movie premiere of "The Mysterious Islands" (Vision Forum's latest film) (For more info on the film, visit in Durham NC. It was fantastic! I won't spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen it yet, but I will say that anyone who either sees the movie, or ever visits the Galapagos Islands cannot doubt God's work and beautiful design in creation. The soundtrack to this film is gorgeous! I'm Planning to get it myself! Well worth the money. Besides the movie, seeing all of the Christian home school families there was very encouraging to me.....and inspiring! You just don't see many feminine young ladies or gentlemanly young men anymore. I love it! I hope that we can do something like this again soon!!!

Medieval Feast

My family has been studying the Middle Ages for school, and last night we had a Grand Medieval Feast! We totally transformed our garage into a feasting hall. 70 people showed up :)!!!!! We all had a fantastic time. There were Friars and Scotts, noble ladies and serfs, cloaked rangers and even King Robert The Just, and Queen Brendalynn The Gentle were present at the gathering. Some of our family and friends acted out parts while Mom read some of the customs of a real feast. It was so fun!  My siblings and I had to read reports on what we had been studying in the Medieval times. Last ,we put on a short skit with our friends. It was called St. George and the Dragon. That turned out to be hilarious! We all enjoyed some great fellowship after the food was gone. Thus ended our Medieval Feast, thanks to the hard work of our friends the Robbins and Willis's.
