Haiku - 2017 school highlights

I am sorting my school room and going though the last year's books, etc.  I came across one of Gabe's impromptu scribblings, in Haiku form, written in the margin of some other thing he was supposed to be doing...

The Funniest

Sometime I think, as Christians, we shoot ourselves in the feet (maybe foot? Where are you Grammar Girl???) by being so offend-able and difficult and just plain not-funny.  Well, not Douglas Wilson.  This guy is the new Chesterton.  I just like him so much.  Besides battling earnestly, yet joyfully with the late Christopher Hitchens, he takes the time to co-create super funny videos like the one below.  

It will make you think twice about the gift of thumbs.

New home

We drove this very sweet little guy out to the Constance Creek Wildlife Refuge yesterday, near carp.  Super cool place.  We found him hanging from the eaves looking pretty weak and very lethargic.  We dropper fed him some water.  It was adorable.  

Cole wanted to keep him.
Jason wanted to keep him and train him to sit on his shoulder and eat mosquitoes while he chopped wood.

This is little "Batty"drinking formula for a sponge.

Resting Babies

Esther was a sweet and joyful little mommy today and helped me tidy a good friend's house in preparation for a wedding.  She also did a lot of baby holding and some flower arranging.  
I thank God for this little girl.  She is a sturdy and loving little girl.
