Men's Monday Meme - Happy Father's Day!
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: Men's Monday Meme

My dad passed away almost nine years ago now. I miss my dad. When I was growing up, Dad and I weren't as close as we could have been. I loved Dad and I knew that he loved me. It was just that he was very busy. Busy taking care of our needs and busy doing what God wanted him to do. He was a bivocational pastor. He worked full time during the week, then pastored a church on the weekend. It wasn't until after I graduated that Dad and I became really close. We talked about marital relationships. We talked about life. I could call him if I had any problems and he would always help in any way that he could. I loved my father and still miss him terribly. I would have to say he was the most influential, caring, human man that I've had in my life. Which, leads me to this week's question.

Who is/was the most influential man in your life? Tell us about him?

Here's the rules:

  1. This is a man's meme, so the answers must be the answers from a man. Either the man can answer on his blog, or a wife can interview her husband for her blog. However, if the wife puts it on her blog, she must stay true to what her husband said.
  2. You are encouraged to put one of the Men's Monday Meme buttons found to the left on your blog. Just copy the code below the button of your choice. The more folks who link, the more readers you may have to visit your blog.
  3. You may answer the question any time during the week up through next Monday. After you answer the question, add the address to your post to the Mr.Linky below. If you could, please only add the direct link to the post to make it easier for readers to find the entry.
  4. My answer along with a new question will be posted next Monday. The new Mr. Linky will be added at midnight Monday night or sometime within the next couple of days after that Wink.
And here's the new Mr. Linky:

On Father's Day, Give the Gift of a Father to Someone Who Doesn't Have One!

Sponsor a Child in Jesus Name with Compassion


Hey Dad's. I know today is Father's Day and you are supposed to be getting the gifts. Today, however, I've been thinking somewhat about my Compassion kids. So many Compassion International children either don't have fathers, or don't have spiritual father's that can really make a difference in their lives. Why don't you give a gift to them on this Father's Day. Be the "Daddy" that they don't have.

I know what you always hear on T.V. ~ "For just a little over a dollar a day..." or "For less than the price of a cup of gourmet coffee...". Those statements are true, but I'm not Sally Struthers (does she still do that?) or any other celebrity. I'm just a plain old dad, whose family has chosen to sponsor kids through Compassion International. But this plain old dad can tell you from experience that Compassion International works. Your money will not be wasted.

Won't you consider being a "Dad" to a child who doesn't have one (or at least have a spiritual one). If you do, I can guarantee it will a Father's Day that you will never forget!

WATER DAY! - Day Camp 1
Mood:  silly
Topic: Ministry


I really like www.slide.com, but they don't have any Christian music to go with their slideshows.They list one Christian song, but it is certainly not Christian.So I opted not to have any music with this one.

Oh well, these are pictures from our last day of day camp. Water Day! Hope you enjoy them. Thanks for all of your prayers and support. We had a great week.

Next week is a garden and clean the house week, then the week after that is another Day Camp! I'll keep you posted.

I'm a Trippin'
Mood:  cheeky
Topic: Blog Carnivals!


No, I'm not trippin on some drug from the 60's Laughing, I'm going on a field trip. A meme field trip. Okay, I know it says a Blog Carnivals in the topic, but Meme's and Carnival's are very similar. Maybe I should change my topic to say Blog Carnivals and Memes.

Anyway, this meme is a field trip meme. It is a great meme to go to if you're looking for a cool place to take your kids on a field trip or just to live vicariously through someone else's adventure and learn about a new and different place. Now, I know that the field trip that I mentioned really isn't a learning field trip, but it was adventerous. Click on the button at the top of the page to find out what my adventure was and to see all of the great fun that some of the others went on. Have fun!

Blog Hopping? Hey I needed something to do in my spare time!
Mood:  cheeky
Topic: TOS Crew Blog Hop


After all, I don't bar hop, so I have to meet new people somehow Wink.

Just kidding!

Actually, I had no idea what blog hopping was until a few months ago. Even, then, I didn't really get into it. Just this past week, however, one of the new TOS Homeschool Crew members suggested doing a "Blog Hop" to get to know all of the other crew member's blogs. 

You all know that I am an FM (First Mate) this year on the homeschool crew. That means that I have 5 new crew members that I am kind of mentoring and helping along ~ at least at the beginning until they get their feet wet. Well, the new crew members just began about a week ago and they are a lively bunch. Not only do they like to talk, but there are twice as many folks on the homeschool crew since last year! So, we have twice as much chatter. But, that also means twice as many good ideas. 

One of the great ideas that was recommended was to do the Blog Hop. Then, someone suggested publishing the weekly list on our blogs in order for our readers to get to know all of the great homeschool blogs that the folks on this years crew write. I thought it was a great idea and so decided to participate. 

I'm a little behind the times, the first list was put out a few days ago, but it really doesn't matter when it is published as long as it is done every week. I'll try to do it around the end of the week every week, though it may not be on Thursday's. Thursday's are generally set aside for my weekly "Thursday's Child" post about Compassion International. If you follow my blog at all, you will know that I am notorious for not posting things on the days that they are supposed to be posted on, and, true to form, I've already posted my Thursday's Child post for the week so I decided to post my TOS Homeschool Crew Blog Hop today!

So, without further adieu, here are this week's great blogs -

1.  Reaping a Harvest
2.  Pink & Orange Coffee
3.  Live, Laugh, Learn!
4.  Mrs. Mandy's Musings
5.  The Fantastic Five
6.  Refined Metals Academy
7.  Just A Moment in Time
8.  Providence Farm
9.  My Journey
10. Petra School
Check them out, I think you'll find that they are well worth the read!
