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.

Last Year

Family Camp 2009

Archive post about Family Camp last summer, here.


We miss this guy on the right, who will miss camp this year because he is serving our country in Iraq.

* That would be "Iowa."

Five Years Ago

Family Camp 2005

Who's in Charge?

"And it at any time I declare concerning a nation or a kingdom that I will build and plant it, and if it does evil in my sight, not listening to my voice, then I will relent of the good that I had intended to do to it."
Jeremiah 18:9

Car Talk

"I know! What if the Toy Story toys acted in Star Wars?"

"Woody would be Luke and Jesse would be Leia."
"Buzz would be Han Solo!"
"Mr. Potato Head would be R2D2."
"Bull's Eye would be the Millennium Falcon."
"No, no, no. RC would be the Millennium Falcon."
"Yeah! And Bull's Eye would be one of those sand creatures."
"What about Rex?"
A chorus of voices: "Chewie!!!"
"Zorg would be Darth Vader."

(Conversation overheard as I drove my Suburban around town yesterday, as I remember it anyway.)

A Word From Horace. . .

. . . Horace Vandergelder, that is, not the poet. I get a huge kick out of this bit of dialogue from Thorton Wilder's "The Matchmaker."

Walter Matthau (Vandergelder) and Michael Crawford (Cornelius) do a nice job with this banter in the movie "Hello, Dolly!" My favorite is "A man's not worth a cent until he's forty. We just pay 'em wages to make mistakes--"

Be sure to scroll down to read about Cornelius's promotion!

Summer Smiles

Edwards Academy Girls

A lot of people think that Lydia looks a lot like her older brother Toby. Here is a picture of him at the same age. What do you think?

A good friend of ours who is serving in Baghdad sent Lane a boonie hat, which arrived yesterday. Lane was overjoyed since Mr. Edwards gave Toby a boonie hat about a month ago, so he could have a summer sun hat.
