DISCLAIMER- First off, I know we chose to attend public school. PLEASE don't lecture me on the spoils of that. I'm sure I have heard it. Public schools have given us LOTS of life lessons to deal with and problem solve. So here goes...Zach shared with us he "may" be getting in some trouble. He NEVER gets in trouble at "school" so we were a lil concerned. He went on to tell us that his high school is doing a moment of "silence" for the kids that are gay on Friday. He refused to sign the petition or participate in "their silent moment". We wearily asked him why....the sum of his thoughts were as follows...he likes people and tries to look past the junk and just love on people. He is sure that a couple of friends are probably gay but that is between them and GOD. He will not judge them but he also won't sit by and rebuke everything the Bible tells him. He is not going to support that everything God has shown him and proved to him many times is wrong. The fact he may socially an "outsider" for not participating is crazy. We are however proud of him for his ability love on people!

Sofi had kindergarten screening. They asked her to sing her A,B,C's her response was " no, I don't feel wike it wight now". They then asked if she could say them? Her response "duh, I'm 5". I sat in awe...that it sounded like her 10 yr old brother. Today the girls were put in time out in their rooms. I hear Lize say "why does she always know when were naughty?" Sofi replys "she only hears what she wants to hear" (exactly what I tell their 15 yr old brother....)

This was our first trip together in nearly 10 years without children. Although WE both really missed the kids, it was nice to relax and have mommy/daddy time. Royal Carribean's Radience of the Seas
Just one of the many buffets....
James and I met at 12. Our first day of 6th grade. We got married at 21 and nearly 20 years later-we still like eachother, love to hangout and enjoy being parents.
In Cozumel Mexico.
Catamaran to Paradise Island.
On the cruise ship atrium. It is impossible to be bored on the ship. There is always something going on. Casino, shows, movie theater, games, pool, food, mall....
