If you missed Sonny’s sermon from March 30, you need to check it out. I don’t want to speak for Sonny, but I’m pretty sure the “lesson” of his sermon was that God loves the youngest son. I guess others could get something else from the sermon… if they don’t really pay attention.
Unfortunately, my friend Cory didn’t win the Bridge Run. I’m sure wearing a cloak and sword slowed him down…
Some of you have been asking if Sonny and I are following an American League team this season. My answer to you is... yes, we are. However, this year we have decided to do a little more research than we did last year. Therefore, this year we will do some research and decide who we are going to cheer for by late September/early October.
|Some more Daniel birthday pictures|
|Daniel playing ball with Trixie|
|Saw this picture on the interweb... If I owned a lake house, I might invest in a couple or ten of these|
|Daniel would hold the ball and count to 24 (more or less) and then throw the ball. I can't figure out why Trixie kept taking the ball back to him...|
|Mary Ruth won the Math Wizard contest for 2nd graders at her school!!!! Suck it, Sonny!|
