Imparting a classical education at home. Check out the Edwards Academy.

Psalm 78
. . . we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done. .
so the next generation would know them . . . and they in turn would tell their children.
Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands.

Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day!

A few pictures from our recent trip to visit my grandfather:

He's in the hospital right now, but was feeling pretty good and seemed very glad to see us. I know we were glad to see him!

While we were in town, we took the kids over to Great-Grandpa's house to see all his model boats. Lane has lately been drawing sailing ships and I knew he would enjoy seeing Great-Grandpa's boats. He has made models of the Bounty, the three Columbus ships, a Phoenician sailboat, the Mayflower, and others. The kids are pictured below standing next to the model of the Bounty.

Lane drew a picture of one of the model boats which he then gave to Great-Grandpa.

I'm so thankful for all the fathers in our family: my dad, my grandfather, my husband, and his dad.

It sounds like you had a good trip. I like the second photo, where your grandfather has his hand over Toby's shoulder. We have found that one of the best things about taking babies to see their older relatives is that the older relatives can actually hold them, even though they would be too weak to have a bigger kids sit on their lap. It Is lovely to see so many smiles on the faces of your kids as they visit.

Did you talk about the mutiny that the Bounty is so famous for? There are two old movies made about it, one starring Clark Gable and another starring Marlon Brando. They might be a bit violent, but because they are old movies the violence is likely to be much less than would be in comparable "historical" movies made today.
