AHHHHH! Did you hear that scream echoing throughout the land?
Yes, that scream that you heard was me. I was yelling because my computer has crashed for yet a third time in just over a year. This time, however, it had help from two little hoodlums. One with the last name of Tinkel and one not (next door neighbor boy). They decided that it would be fun to play Toontown on my computer, tripped over the cord where it was charging, and down came computer, hard drive and all. I am presently trying to install Ubuntu. Ubuntu miraculously was able to retrieve all of my data from the other two crashes, and I am praying it can retrieve the files from this hard drive as well. Such is life. It really is partially my fault. I knew that there was a screw missing from the hard drive and, sure enough, it fell out and was obviously damaged. Pray that I can retrieve the files that I need. I am on my wifes computer right now and will keep you posted (no pun intended ). Thanks for all of your prayers.

Blog Hop Week 4 is Here and I'm Terribly Embarrassed!
Topic: TOS Crew Blog Hop
Why am I embarrassed you may ask? Because all this time I've been calling it a blog HOP when it is actually a blog WALK! Well, you know we Tinkel's we just hate to be normal. We have to be a little different. We don't walk to all of these blogs. We're too excited to do that! We HOP! And let me tell you, you will want to hop to it and visit these blogs! There are some fascinating ones this week. You will really enjoy it. So, get hoppin'...I mean walking...I mean...OH FORGET IT! JUST DO IT!

Finally Some Day Camp Pictures are Up!
Finally some pictures of Day Camp 2 ~ held last week. The slide show begins with some Bible Teaching and general pictures, followed by some of our game time and, of course, water day pictures! The best pictures this week are of our baby food eating contest. Two teams lined up and they had to run down to a chair with bags on it, pick a bag, open it, and eat three bites of whatever baby food was in the bag. Of course we picked yummy vegetables and meat foods. As you can see by the looks on the kid's faces they will never complain about Mom's cooking again!
Thanks, everyone, for all of the prayers and support. In the environment that we are working in, there is a lot of distraction and constant drama. Your prayers are deeply felt, needed and appreciated. Please don't stop! We have another week of day camp next week. I'll be blogging about that one as well, so keep tuning in!

I know! I know! My blog looks slightly different! It's Clean!
The Bears cleaned their room. And in the process, my sidebar got cleaned up. In fact, it's empty. That's really a very good thing! I finally found out how to fix my problems. In doing so, however, I had to erase everything on my sidebar. Don't worry (as if you really were worrying ), I'm going to redo it better than ever and put things in the right place. Look for some fun changes in the near future! Thanks for putting up with the mess!

I'm So Excited! And with my blog in the mess that it's in, I need some excitement!
I am super excited! I have made the blog lists on two different very influential blogs!
The first is a blogroll from a great homeschool website called "Heart of the Matter" -
Heart of the matter is a great site with lots of tips that don't always have to do with homeschooling. So, please visit the site and some of the other blogs on the Blogroll!
The other great list that I made has to do with something that's near and dear to my heart ~ Compassion International. I made their Compassion Bloggers list. Please click on the following banner to get to the list and visit some of the other great blogs that promote "Relieving Children in Poverty in Jesus name."
