Everyone knows I am not much of a sports person, I really don’t know the difference between sport things. So what caught my attention the most (besides her amazing arm and how fast she would throw the ball) was her attitude. She would always smile and if she made a mistake she wouldn’t let it get to her. This one player on the other team got hurt and Kayla was the first one there to help her out. In Upward Sports, you get a White Star for “Most Christ Like,”
Kayla, tonight you earned your White Star. I am proud of you! Keep on keeping on

I gave a letter to the post man, he put it his sack.Bright and early next morning, he brought my letter back.She wrote upon it:
Return to sender, address unknown.No such number, no such zone.We had a quarrel, a lovers' spat,I'd write "I'm sorry" but my letter keeps coming back.
So when I dropped it in the mailbox, I sent it "Special D"Bright and early next morning, it came right back to me.She wrote upon it:
Return to sender, address unknown.No such person, no such zone.
This time I'm gonna take it myself And put it right in her handAnd if it comes back the very next dayThen I'll understand.The writing on it:
Return to sender, address unknown.No such person, no such zone.

Cathy and I go grocery shopping together from now on.
“Meow – gurgle – cough – cough – spit – spit – hack – hack – barf.” At first I thought maybe Cathy was behind me. (Ha-ha just kidding) But in fact it was one of our cats (Marbles) throwing up some hair and food (other words Barfing)
But the thing that made me stop and think, was that the other cat (Spot) ran over and ate it all up. I turned and looked at Spot and he sort of gave me a “cat-smile” and burped.

I have no clue what he is so “freaked-out” about. Sometimes I can feel like this little fellow. I wonder if I look like that after a “stressful” day.
(Oh yea and no comments like: “You look like that all the time” or “Hey when did the church directory pictures get in” (ha-ha))
So what is with the box of “Frosty Flakes?” I really don’t know. I thought it would be cool to talk about them for a while. I like Frosty Flakes, they are quite tasty. I believe the best part is the warm sugar tasting milk it leaves behind. I also like the fact that it has a nice “crunch” sound as well.
That is all.

The RAF received their first B-17Cs in 1941, and were soon conducting daylight raids over Germany. The defensive armament soon proved inadequate, and the B-17's altitude was little defense against the German fighters. Orders for the B-17D were soon placed with self-sealing fuel tanks and more armor because of lessons learned in bombing missions over Europe. The B-17E and B-17F soon followed with larger tail. The B-17F was the first to serve with the USAAF 8th Air Force. After suffering staggering losses in late 1943, analysis proved head-on attacks by enemy fighters were a distinct problem. The final major version, the B-17G, added a chin turret with dual machineguns. This gave the B-17 a defensive armament of 13 guns.
After the war, several dozen B-17s lived on as fire-bombers and aerial surveyors until the last one was retired in the 1970s. Today, a few B-17s have been restored to their wartime splendor. Eleven are currently flying in the United States, one in the UK and another one in France

The other day Cathy and I were talking, and she asked me if I ever thought I would have three kids. To be honest with you I said, I never really thought about it much. But now that I am sitting here thinking, I think it is pretty awesome. I was going through some internet stuff just surfing a bit before I head to bed. I just got done watching M*A*S*H and Cathy and the boys headed to bed. I came down to “Man-Land” or what it used to be. Now it is Brady’s new room, Landon’s and Alexander’s play area and Cathy’s “Work – Out” world. So while I was surfing the net, I came across this music video. We heard this song before while we were in the car. So I thought I would post it. Cathy likes to read my blogs at work and at home. So I thought this would be nice for her.
In a few weeks (maybe around 2-3) Alexander will be here. I guess I am pretty lucky to have such a great family. Who despite my “goofiness” still think I am a pretty cool dad and husband.
Is there a point to this story? No, I just couldn’t figure out what else to say right now. Oh I could get into the whole “I think Cathy may have the baby (Alexander) any day now” story. But I will save it.
Well I guess I am out of here.

We had an incredible turn out for our closing program. I have to admit, it was an awesome fun time. Just a special “thank you” to everyone who had a part in this year’s Upward Ministry. As we have begun planting seeds in over 140 children and their families, my prayer is that they remember “That Jesus is the way, the truth and the life”

Just too cool..I love Speed Racer
Anyway when M*A*S*H was over, we started talking about switching Landon’s and Brady’s rooms around so we can make more room for Alexander (new edition). She thought it would be better to go ahead and finished the basement and move Brady down there. Brady had mentioned it earlier tonight. I told her that was funny, because Kevin said the same thing, “Why don’t you move Brady down to the basement”? So, that is what we are going to do. For the next few months we are going to remodel the basement and put Brady's new room down there. Now we won’t use the whole basement for him. We still want to have a place for the boys to play and Cathy to do her work-out exercise things. But I am excited now about the project. I went and got out my tool-belt and I am wearing it while I type this blog.
So until next time…. “Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars!”
Any way, I hope you feel better soon Kayla!! And my other buddy, I hope you feel better soon too!!

I hope we can get a chance to do some shopping on our “Date Night” there is a pretty good coin shop up there. By the way for those who didn’t know I do collect all types of coins from early American history to worldly currency. So if you have any lying around, I will take them.
See you when I get back!
P.S. We are taking our van, not the F-14, The F-14 needs an oil change.

Tonight, I was just sitting here in front of the computer making sure I got everything done and my ducks in a row before I leave for the Weekend To Remember conference this weekend.
I started to fall asleep and I wasn’t ready to go to bed yet, so I decided to look at some music videos. When I came across this song and video by Michael W. Smith, I’ve heard the song tons of times on the radio, but never seen the video until tonight. It got me thinking about the “marriage / family” conference. And the many, many lives God is going to touch this weekend. As a Minister of Families and Children, I see so much pain and despair in so many eyes of children and husbands and wives. I pray that this weekend that God will move in the hearts of the families that are going from my church. And I even pray harder that maybe one day we as a body of believers can start to change the mind set of this nation and this world, so that we can save a generation, one home at a time.
What is even more exciting is that three other couples from our church are attending the conference as well. I think the exciting time is going to be on Saturday night when we are let go from the conference early and have a “date-night” Wahoo… I feel like I am sixteen again, and on a date with my sweetie, (except we are both in our 30’s and we have two kids and one on the way (in a matter of weeks), and we both are sleepy by 10pm.)
Either way, I am looking forward to it.
