It's easy to forget...

...what the people that gave us freedom...

...go through to give it.

Thank you.

I've learned...

I will set no worthless thing before my eyes;
I hate the work of those who fall away;
It shall not fasten its grip on me.

Psalm 101:3

The fight for purity and righteousness is a constant battle. It is so important for Christians to be aware of what we watch and see. Be on your guard at all times and don't associate yourself with things of the world. Keep on and don't give in!

More Books?

ummm..... YES!!

(my bookshelf hates me!)

Speech Tournament

Last weekend we traveled to a speech/debate tournament. My sister Eady and her friend Sarah Beth preformed a dramatic duo from Sense and Sensibility and I did a humorous interpretation from Emma. As you can see, we had a lot of fun ;)

Whoa... a serious picture!

Ok... back to normal.

Expanding, Part II

I have been meaning to do this post for a month now!
After the bushes were eliminated, we had four pine trees cut down. I disliked having to take them out, but it really was impossible to have optimal sun for the planters without doing so. (Less pinecones to pick up, anyway ;)

Then the planters were built...
(blood, sweat, and tears - 6 x 6 x 16 timbers are H-E-A-V-Y)

Dirt hauled in...

...and finally planting!

Now all the vegetables are doing quite nicely, more pictures coming soon.
