What Have We Been Doing Lately? Reading!
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: Family

For those of you who have been following my blog for a while, it may seem like I have been lazy lately. There are quite a few days in which I haven't posted anything on my blog at all. Well, there is a reason.

Last year, at about this time, I made it a goal to post something on my blog daily for a year. I almost made it. There were a few days that I missed here and there, but, in reality, I missed less than 10 days of blogging.

Well, for the last few weeks I have been taking a break. And, you know what? It has felt kind of good! I have enjoyed not worrying about what I was going to post tonight. Now, don't get me wrong. I enjoyed the challenge and intend to continue with it. Very soon, you will be seeing me post almost everyday again. 

I also realized, though, that, while I was enjoying blogging, I was allowing some other worthy things to take a back seat because I had no time for them. One of the main things was reading. I have always enjoyed reading, and have been catching up for some lost time lately.

I have been having so much fun, in fact, that I have been thinking of a way to be able to prod myself to read while also working on my blog. So, I thought, why not join the two? I still don't know quite how it's going to work out, or what shape it's going to take, but I plan on having a weekly (or maybe monthly) reading post. Maybe it will be a "Tim's Book Club" type thing (watch out Oprah Wink). Perhaps it will be a "What is my family reading this week?" type post. I even thought about reading a particular book then reviewing it. Who knows?

Whatever the case might be, I want it to be fun and something to encourage you all to pick up a good book and read. Until I think of what form this "Book Project" will take, I'm going to just let you all know what my family is reading. Tomorrow (or maybe the next day ~ depending on how I feel) I'm going to tell you about what we have been reading recently. Let me tell you, that you will find a lot out about our personalities by what we are reading. It'll be fun! Until them, get your nose in a good book so you can tell me what you have been reading lately. Have fun!

Thank You Veterans
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: General

A few months ago I blogged about my two oldest sons shooting on a competitive BB gun team. I received a message from an old high school friend who seemed incredulous that I would allow my children to even touch a squirt gun let alone an actual working fire arm. After reading that, it was my turn to be incredulous.

It is not a dishonor to own a gun, nor is it a dishonor to serve in our military. My friend can seem surprised if she wants, but I will not deny my child the opportunity to dress up like a soldier like he wanted to do two Halloweens ago.


I will not prohibit my boys from playing "army" if they want to outside. And I will teach them to shoot, own and handle a firearm safely.

It would be an honor if one of them chose to serve our country in the military to keep our great country safe. Although I would rather live in peace, I respect and and very thankful for the men and women - many of them my relatives - who have fought to protect the freedoms that we cherish in the United States of America.

And so with that, I want to say once again:

Thank You Veterans!

Thank you all so much for the many birthday wishes that were sent my way today. At last count, I had around 140 people wish me a Happy Birthday on Facebook alone. Many more have sent birthday blessings in other ways. I have truly been blessed today. Thank you again!

Welcome to All Homeschool Blog Award Voters.
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: General

Thanks for checking out my blog. I am the father of three very unique boys. John Allen, 14, is a cancer survivor, Joshua, 9, has asperger's syndrome and Jacob, 4, is developmentally delayed. You can find out more about our journey with them by clicking on either the "Family" link or "The Kids" link to the left.

We are full time missionaries that work with low income housing folks in the town that we live in. Click on the "Ministry" link to the left to read more about the ministry that we direct.

Because I have a flexible schedule, I am able to share in the homeschooling responsibilities with my wife, Sarah. I love to homeschool and I am very blessed to be a member of The Old Schoolhouse Magazines "Homeschool Crew" and review great homeschool products. Since many of you are homeschoolers, please check out the reviews by clicking on the "Homeschool Product Review" link.

Two other categories that I feel very passionate about are the BCM International category and the Compassion International link. BCM Internationl is the mission organization that we are with. Click on it to find out what BCM is all about. We are either the financial sponsor or the correspondence sponsor to five Compassion International children. We love them and the Compassion organization. Please click on that link to learn about our Compassion kids and that great organization.

Feel free to click around the other links in the left hand column as well. Some categories have more entries in than others, but I try to write all of my posts, no matter what they are about, from the heart. I hope you enjoy them.
