Awful news out of Indiana regarding that church bus crash. I have been a youth pastor and have taken my share of groups to camp, and have even driven church vans like that many times. That was always my biggest fear! Praying for all those involved and those who lost loved ones.

Well, not much new to report here. Thank you all for the well wishes regarding my wife's interview today and my birthday. You guys are awesome!

Have a good day!
Praying for all of those involved.

Good luck to your with today and Happy Birthday! Are you doing anything special?

Glad you enjoyed yourself, but sorry you have to work on your birthday. Try to enjoy it the best you can, though!

Good morning!
It is going to be sunny today with temperatures in the lower 80's. Just walked the dogs a little while ago and it is warm out there. I am moving slow today, I'm on my third cup of coffee. It's going to be one of those days. But I have to get moving soon, I have a few errands to run and lots of chores to do. Dinner with my in laws again tonight, they head back to Florida tomorrow.
I hope everyone has a great day!

So they called me and asked that I pick her up for the night. Well airport is 1 1/2 hours from here so by the time we gassed up and got there and home again it was just after midnight. Now here it is 5 am and we have to get ready to go back again for a 9:25 am flight departure.
So off we go, have a great day everyone!
You really were not having a good day yesterday hope todays a lot better

The weather has changed drastically, the sun and dry weather has been replaced with grey skies and heavy rain. But atleast it is still warm so a walk in the rain feels quite pleasant We are looking at taking the children to the Science Museum in the city and the Sealife centre this week. They are indoor activities so the weather won't impact us and both trips will be very stimulating for the kids.

We had a nice weekend although we didn't really do much. It was just nice to be off work yesterday and unwind . We started watching The Hobbit last night but my eldest fell asleep after the first 15mins. We decided to stop and resume today as he has been looking forward to it.

As I am writting this the clouds are breaking up.......

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas in July weekend! Things will really pick up on here over the next few months!!

Have a wonderful day everybody!
Glad you guys had a relaxing weekend!

Have a wonderful time with the kids at the Science Museum & Sealife Centre!!
