Geese





 On Feb 2, Jonathan came over with 4 geese that he had shot earlier that day. He wanted to show us how to skin and gut them. It was a very cold day, but we bundled up and headed outside.

Michelle, Mary, Matthew, Hannah, Stephen & Samuel went to watch. (Dad, Karen, Robert, Christopher & Sarah were gone.) Jonathan gave each of us a goose feather. Matthew was able to help with some of it. Jonathan gave us the meat. The little boys thought it was a lot of fun and we learned a lot about geese from Jonathan.

First Snow


On Friday, January 18, we got our first snow of the year, about one inch. It was beautiful outside. Everyone was excited, and wasted no time getting outside. 




We made a snowman, but the dogs knocked it down pretty quickly.We also had quite a few snowball fights. The snow was excellent for making snowballs.

Joseph really enjoyed his first snow. His favorite thing was sledding with Robert.

Samuel liked to throw snowballs at anyone he could. He also did some sledding.

Even though the snow was melted by the next day,everyone had lots of fun in it.

Earth Quaking Experience

     I experienced my first earthquake at my grandparents' house in VA on August 23, 2011.

     I was going into the house when I heard a big "BOOM!". At first, I thought it was the ac coming on. But then, the ground started shaking and I didn't know what it was. I heard the neighbors and my cousin Joshua shouting ''EARTHQUAKE!''. Then I ran to the driveway and stood there. I heard the garage doors shaking and I thought that everything in the garage was falling.

      I heard Grandma yelling in the house but I didn't know why. So I ran into the house. She had been calling for me and my cousins to come to her. My cousins came running up the basement stairs. Once we were all inside the earthquake only lasted a few more seconds.

     A few days later, on August 25th, at 1:30 in the morning, we had an aftershock and it woke most of us up.

     I am thankful that the Lord kept us all safe through the earthquake.

THOUGHTFULNESS

The ladies at church are reading through JR Miller's book Things To Live For. In January we read the chapter called The Grace of Thoughtfulness.

JR Miller says:

"Too often our thoughtfulness is an afterthought; the problem is to get it to its true place, where it will become motive and inspiration to gentleness, instead of pain and penitence over a failure in love’s duty."

God says:

"Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, to build him up." 
Romans 15:2

"Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others," 
Philippians 2:4

What a challenge to be more thoughtful and to be prepared whenever a need should arise.
