I had a couple flat canvases in the closet just begging to be used.
So… I made something for the children’s bedroom doors.
We decided to go with blue and green for the baby’s room. My sister and I picked out some material that has frogs and turtles that we’ll use to make a window treatment and bed decorations. We’re going to paint blue and green stripes on the walls. It will be fun!
Yes, his name will be Thomas Baozhen, but we’ll call him Tommy.

Abby has really taken off with her love of reading! She reads all the time. Last month, she read On the Banks of Plum Creek by Laura Ingalls Wilder. She is reading through all nine in that series. She takes a break from that to read other easy readers like the Magic Tree House books or the Junie B. Jones series. She is also reading a biography about Ben Franklin. Recently, she read a book about September 11 after we had visited New York City.
I love that she has taken such an early interest in reading.

It seems as if I am all about the videos right now. But this one only took a couple of hours to do.
The family and some friends came over for a picnic on the fourth of July, and so we decided to have a little obstacle course for them to do.
I have other pictures I took of the parade, etc., but I’ll post those another day.

I worked several hours on making two videos of our time in New York. So rather than put the individual pictures here, I’m linking to the videos!
We had a great time leading some of our youth group and a couple of adults as a team to minister with Street LIFE Ministries in New York. We were stretched in our faith and in our ability to talk to strangers.
I was concerned, at first, at how the girls would do, but they fit right in and had a great time, too.
Our day off was scheduled for Thursday. Thursday dawned with thick fog and threatening rain. We trudged on, though, and took in as much as we could.
