Scavenger Hunt Sunday

Hey there! How are you all? Life has it's ups and downs, but all in all I'm doing good. On a sad note, I lost a follower this week...but the happy side of that is I also gained one. (And I just want to say a quick word: Blogger is shutting down Google friend connect, so if you don't have a blog yourself, you won't get my updates. Be sure to follow through email or FB) Ok, changing topics here...I finally did it-- I got this in the mail Friday: (!!!!!) 
Anyways, I've been taking a lot more pictures since then, and ALL these pictures are from this week. :) I'll have a few more posts up this week with more new pictures too. Have a great week! 

1. Crossed
A couple weeks ago we visited a Dollhouse museum. It was a lot better than I imagined it to be -- it was like a walk through history! So much fun. 

2. A Glimpse 
We've been having quite the "glimpse" into Spring these past few weeks. The daffodils started blooming in early January, so, as you can imagine, we haven't had much a winter. That's Kentucky for ya!

 3. Handwritten
Spanish. If you don't see me on here much it's because I am working on this. I'm really far behind right now, and have got big dreams to learn other languages, but I'm not aloud to until I finish Spanish. So I suppose I'll be working on it...

 4. Bliss
bliss (bls)
n.
1. Extreme happiness; ecstasy.

I think this picture fits pretty good. :)


5. Gray
Our gray cat. She's the best cat ever. It's kinda funny, my dad and I picked a cat out and when we went to our neighbors to get one of their kittens, we couldn't tell the difference between the two kittens. So daddy just said, let's get them both! It turns out this is the cat we weren't going to get, and it's our favorite of the two! (We do like the other one too, though.) 

Well, that's it for now! Do come again my dear friends!

A True Soldier

Why God Made Little Girls


God made the world with towering trees, majestic mountains and restless seas. 
Then paused and said , "It needs one more thing... 
Someone to laugh and dance and sing. To walk in the wood and gather flowers... 
To commune with nature in quiet hours."So God made little girls 
With laughing eyes and bouncing curls, With joyful hearts and infectious smiles, 
Enchanting ways and feminine wiles. And when He'd completed the task He'd begun. 
He was pleased and proud of the job He'd done. 
For the world, when seen through little girl's eyesGreatly resembled Paradise.

And I needed to let you know that me and coffee are best friends. :)

Godspeed, Daddy

Remember I said I had something to tell you today? Well...for those of you who have been following for at least a year, you may have known what this was going to be about. Last year my dad traveled to Tanzania, Africa to teach church leaders. He was handed down the ministry, and is in charge of Forward in Africa. So he departs us again to teach others about Christ and the church so that they in turn can teach even more. He left this morning, and will be gone for six weeks. Please pray for him, that he will have safe travels and teach well; for us, that we will be able to survive without Dad around :); and his students, that they will learn well and be equipped to teach many people.
