Never ending french braid

I came across a blog all about hairdos and this hairdo caught my eye right away. It is called the never ending french braid and wraps around the whole head. I need to make it a little neater next time, but here is my first attempt at it. Looks really neat!

Isn't she cute!!

15 Top places to travel

There is a travel website—Budget Travel (which is also a magazine)—that sent out an email stating the following:

In 2011 we picked 15 places every kid should see before 15 from Ellis Island to Redwood National Park. Now it’s time to revisit that list with your input! What makes a monument worthy of inclusion? It needs to be fun, educational, and especially magical through the eyes of a child. Of course, it should be enjoyable for parents too. Submit your nomination and vote on existing nominations to move them higher in the list. Voting closes on February 21, at which time we’ll do our homework on your favorites and put together the new list. Check back in March for the results!

Guess what? Creation Museum was nominated for the list and stayed at the top for quite a while! But then what happened?
Atheists found out about it and started to write the following:

Keep the Children Out of Here … The website Budget Travel is taking nominations for a list of “15 places every kid should see before 15” — they’ll eventually feature their list (culled from the nominations) in the magazine of the same name.Currently at the top of the list? The Creation Museum … Of all the places kids ought to visit at a young age, the Creation Museum should be faaaaaaar down on the list. It’s much more entertaining when you’re older and know enough about how the world works to realize the whole thing’s a sham. So go vote for the current #2, the US Space & Rocket Center in Alabama. All you have to do is click on the Thumbs Up sign next to the site’s name. In fact, go vote for anything so that the museum gets kicked off the list. Then tell your friends to vote, too …

Then another atheist (a university professor with the University of Minnesota-Morris), who is so committed to his atheist religion that he arrogantly blasphemes and vehemently attacks Christians, also attempted to rally his “religious atheist” devotees (yes, atheism is a religion—it’s a whole worldview) to vote against the Creation Museum. He stated the following:

This is an awful poll: it’s trying to build a list of 15 Places Kids Should See Before 15, and here are the top 5 so far: #1:U.S. Space and Rocket Center, AL#2:Creation Museum, KY#3:Smithsonian Museum of American History, DC#4:Alabama Space and Rocket Center, AL#5:Yellowstone National Park, WY The Creation “Museum” was at #1 earlier, but it has begun to slide downward. How about pushing it further? There is the problem that there are so many options that it’ll be hard to focus and knock out the Creation “Museum” — it has 700 votes already — so you might want to peruse the list and vote for any choice that has a chance at passing it by.

They also went in and listed Creation Museum many times with wrong spellings to divide up the votes from those who truly intend to vote for the museum! If you would like to help boost the vote for the Creation Museum, click on this link,10/ and click on the orange thumbs up icon beside Creation Museum :) but make sure you vote for the correctly spelled one!!

School and house updates

Not alot going on around here. That's probably a good thing!! Everyone is healthy at the moment (except for my very minor sinus issues still). We are approaching the end of our school year. This year seems to be taking much longer than the others because we took Aug/Sept off for packing and moving etc. We have a little over 30 days left to our year. We are reviewing material to take our Year End Diagnostic tests.
No news on the house yet. We had another showing and people seem to love the house, but not the winter view through the backyard. I think once the leaves come in we will have different results. Our rental agreement here is up the end of March which leaves only 2 weeks before baby arrives. We are hoping he will allow us to extend our agreement on a month to month basis until our house sells.....still waiting to hear back from him.

more updates

We have a fever-free boy today! Yay!! He still has what sounds like a cold, but he is doing sooooo much better. Active and hungry once again :) I know he's glad to be out of his room and with his siblings again.

My sister in law still hasn't left the hospital yet. Baby boy is doing great but her platelets aren't going back up again. Please keep her in prayer. I know they are anxious to get home and see their other children as well!!

We had a little snow this morning on the ground and in the air. Didn't stick around long, but the kids always get excited when they see the least bit of snow! I'm making several loaves of wheat bread today, so we'll see how they turn out. I LOVE homemade bread!!! That's about it over here......

***Just heard she is going home! Her platelets have gone way up. What a praise :)

Updates and News

I have another nephew! He was born early this morning into a family of 3 older sisters!! Watch out baby boy :) You're going to have lots of 'momma's' looking out for you. Now that we live in a different state, we can only see him by pictures at the moment. Hopefully soon we will get to see him and hold him.

Other news, our boy is still running a high fever. He looks soooo pitiful!! It stays pretty constant at 103 - 103.5 during the day, but we give him meds at night so he (and mommy and daddy!) can sleep!! If it runs the same course as little sister, he will hopefully be over the fever part by Thurs.

No other real updates to talk of. No news on the new news on baby....although hearing about my nephew makes me wish April was here all the more!!! (but everyone needs to get better first)

Here we go again....

Seems like our little guy has caught whatever our littlest one had a week ago. He's had a high fever through the night, throat seems to be getting sore, eyes watering......oh, the next several days are not going to be fun! Please pray for this momma and our sweet boy (and that NO one else is the family gets it!!)

Not funny

I don't know if you are aware of the constant attack Ken Ham/Answers in Genesis and the Ark Encounter face daily, but here is just another example of the attack against them from the Kentucky Newspaper 'Courier Journal'.
