Our soon-to-be new location

Posted in Family, Military Life, and Thoughts

That’s right. It’s getting to be that time again that we are preparing for another move. We’re surprisingly heading to Norfolk, VA. We’ll be starting house hunting soon as it looks like it might be difficult to find a decent house in our price range that won’t be a commute for D. We may go over and look this weekend since it’s less than 3 hours away. We’ll see. D is doing research to try to find out what exactly he’ll be doing once he gets there. It will be an adventure, I’m sure.

Some Fun Christmas Creations

Posted in Family, Holidays, and Homeschooling

On Sunday, after church, we created a fun snowman out of our leftover pumpkins from Fall. We had a blast doing it. Here’s our creation. On Monday, Little Song Bird and I had fun creating our own gingerbread house and gingerbread tree.

The Nativity Story

Posted in Christian Life, Family, and Reviews

On Sunday, a friend of ours invited us to attend their church for a special showing of the Nativity Story movie that is now playing in theaters. It was absolutely wonderful. I highly recommend seeing this film if you have the opportunity. Our daughter loved it and can’t wait for it to come out on dvd so she can see it again. What a blessing. It also lead to several conversations about differences between the movie and scripture (though it was pretty accurate).

Narnia

Posted in Homeschooling

Yesterday, we went over to the local dinner theater with our homeschool group for a lunch showing of their production — Narnia. We had chicken breast sandwiches, apples, goldfish, oreo snackers, and a juice box. The production, although greatly different than the book/movie, was good. The kids were clapping very loudly after each scene. We had a wonderful time.
