Sunday 8.18.13 written Monday 8.12.13 ping pong paddles and school starting...

We got ping pong paddles today. The kids play ping pong before chuch and have a great time. We can play ping pong at home now on the dining room table. Our dining room table used to be my grandparents. We have heard stories that they had it set up as a ping pong table for a while. I still can't picture a ping pong table at their house. But we have heard that story from more than one person.

Maggie starts school tomorrow. She will be senior. She is very excited. She has come a long way. When she was little, she refused to scoot, crawl and talk. When she was a few years old Maggie decided that she would be the moon when she grew up and refused to learn the alphabet because she said that she had looked up into the sky and had never seen a book up there for the moon to read. She has decided not to become the moon and has learned to read.

Maggie started the countdown for school to start about week ago. When she was in junior high she would do the countdown on how many days she had left in the year.

August 2013 Bible verse: "But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus - the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God." Acts 20:24

  1. That was a wonderful story about Maggie wanting to be the moon and refusing to learn the alphabet. My daughter didn't want to ever go to school. She was going to grow up and marry a rich man who would take care of her. She will be ten this year and she loves school. She now plans on becoming a vet and supporting herself. I love how much changes as children grow.
