Griffin's First Bible Conference

Mike and Griffin went to a bible conference with a group of men from our church. They traveled to North Carolina for the weekend and had a wonderful time! They are home now and my heart is overflowing as Griffin shared some of the sermons he heard this weekend. The Lord was present in a mighty way!

Super Bubbles!

Today I introduced Griffin to 'Super Elastic Bubble Plastic' I loved this when I was a little girl!! I found a package when shopping earlier. I can't believe Griffin had never blown plastic bubbles!! It is fun introducing him to some of my childhood memories! In our house, it was a BIG deal to get something like this!

Homeschool Project - Orchids!

Griffin has wanted an orchid for awhile now. When I stopped into Lowe's I picked up a small one for him. I told him if he could take good care of it, he would be able to get the larger blue one that he really wants. So, this is a new homeschool project for him.
