This month has been so excruciatingly busy, its been unreal! I barely have had time to breathe, much less blog about it, but FINALLY I have some downtime so I thought I would catch up everyone on all the happening's, especially my flat travelers families! I have definitely neglected my blog duties to them and I apologize :( What can I say, I am not a very consistent blogger, but I try to be :) We started our month off by attending a wonderful carnival at a local Elementary School called Tisinger. They had wonderful games from rock climbing, basketball, ring toss, duck finds, knocking bottles down, and of course FOOD! What good is a carnival without food? That's like going to a skating rink and not skating..not natural at all, so of course, we had to eat! Now we are vegetarian (more towards the raw vegan side) so finding food is a little harder for us than most at a carnival, but we always manage, besides we not aliens, we still love our junk food! Drizzle Fizzle spent most of his time at the basketball game, of course, hes my little basketball junkie. He lives for sports. Princess spent most of her time at the rock climbing wall and Munchkin basically hung out.He's 16 and too old and too cool to play little kids games (at least in public)! (pics to come)

Listened to a wonderful sermon today on The Ultimate Jesus, from the book of Hebrews at our church, Centerpoint, focusing on "What motivates us to respond to God? What are some appropriate responses to God? Sermon from Hebrews 10:19-25" http://www.centerpointmesquite.org/2011/04/03/sermon-our-ultimate-responses-to-the-ultimate-jesus/

04/04/11: School AGAIN
We love AWANA at our church. The kids get all psyched up memorizing their bible verses and seeing what the theme is. Its alot of fun. Today was canned food drive day. We support a local homeless ministry called Our Calling that one of our elders owns. Its a fanatic ministry : http://www.ourcalling.org/ Anyways, the kids and our traveling companions had a great time playing games, learning about the Lord, having snacks and helping out the homeless in Dallas. I would like to say I took pics, but I didn't sorry :( I will try to get some though and there are some on the church website as well.
04/06/11: RANGER GAME! WHOOT WHOOT
Ok we are a little fanatical when it comes to sports and we take them pretty serious in our house. I don't care if its baseball (Rangers/ New York Yankees) Hockey (Dallas Stars/ Penguins) Football (Cowboys/Vikings), Basketball (Mavericks all the way baby) or our all time favorite UFC (George St-Pierre AKA GSP/Urija Faber/Forest Griffin) we are fanatical about our teams and out players! So today we got to watch the Texas Rangers whoop up on the Mariners! That made us 5-0 baby! Thats right, we have not lost a single game all season and our flats were there to witness the greatness that is the TEXAS RANGERS!! Oh yea we also got to see people dressed up like M&M's, the official mascot the horse, Davie Crockett, Abraham Lincoln and others. The game was awesome, we remain undefeated and the kids got ice cream, fresh fruit, popcorn, nachos and we got Jr. Ranger Passes so we can come to the next 8 games and support out team. FANTASTIC DAY! (pics to come)

04/08/11: Tuck Everlasting and Grandmother's Birthday (we wont say which one..she might attack us)
Today was the day we had been prepping for. The day we set out to see Tuck Everlasting at the Dallas Children's Theater. The show was 2 hours long and the boys loved it, my daughter not so much. If you ever read the book its about this family who drinks from a stream and gets eternal life. The problem is they realize that its a blessing and a curse at the same time. They focus on love, loss, the hand of God in life, etc. The boys finished the book, so they knew what the ending was with Jess Tuck and Winnie, my daughter (the reading slacker) never got half way through, so she was real upset with the ending. I wont say how it ended jsut in case you never read the book, but for days she went on about how unfair it was and she was mad at Winnie and her decision. That's all I will say. Nope, no more, read the book to find out! Go on read, its good for you...really it is...would I lie? well than...watch the movie, slacker number 2! After the movie, we went over to the kids grandmother's house to celebrate her B-day! I promised her I would not put picks of her up for the world, so I have to keep my word, but we had fun and ate cake and played some games. I love watching my kids bond with their grandparents and realizing how important family is.
