I Can’t Remember …

Tracy / January 23, 2014

September 26, 2013– Zoo Trip

Tracy / September 27, 2013

He did finish…

Have you ever seen a television truck? They are the most massive, amazing things to see…wires and lights all over- people coming and going. Some have rooms that expand out from the sides of the truck. Paul works as a remote television engineer for a local, Christian-owned company. His job has him up, often before the light of day, preparing…

The Four Facts

Tracy / November 8, 2012

My littles have all been learning their multiplication facts, while the older children are working through drills. This is another video Paul created to help them drill facts.
