Did you know...

- that white milk comes from white cows and chocolate milk comes from chocolate cows.

- airplanes can't eat or drink anything. They also cannot smell or hear anything because it would be silly if they could. The jumbo airplane can't talk (I wonder if the smaller ones can :).

- God can't eat anything because He is way up.

- Schnitzel can't see because he hurt his eyes.

A few random thoughts from A at the lunch table today. Hope your day is good!

Happy Father's Day!! And more

Well, we took David to see a Round Rock Express Game for Father's Day. Our whole family had a great time - it was free glove day so A, B, & C all have brand new gloves. They also gave us tickets to go back and see another game free for Father' s Day - whoohoo! They had a Father's Day pre-game catch for Dad and their kids and here are a few pics.

It seems like forever since my last post, partly because we have had some hard times come up. Our uncle Paul passed away from brain cancer a few weeks ago. We were able to attend his funeral service but we weren't really able to visit with family as much as we would have liked, we had to get back home. We will miss him and I am really glad to know that he was a man of faith and is in heaven.

Our great dog, Schnitzel, has officially gone blind. I suspected it a week or so ago and took him into the clinic and had it confirmed. He is doing quite well despite the fact that he cannot see anything! Cause is unknown, could just be age, could be a brain tumor. We just hope that he can continue to enjoy life and until something changes we will love on him as much as possible.

So, for some better news. We have our tickets and will be traveling overseas in just a few weeks. I am really looking forward to it and the kids are excited to ride on the "big plane." Please pray for safety and much grace for us. I have gotten some great advice on traveling with children. If you have any more, I am all ears....

And we were able to go to Houston and celebrate Bradley's big graduation. Congratulations again Bradley!! I guess that is all for now from the home front.
