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.

Christmas Card Photo Shoot Outtakes

Last Saturday we put on our "wedding clothes," as the kids now call them, to go to a wedding. All dressed up, we decided to shoot our family picture for Christmas cards. Out of about sixty shots, we found one that will go out with Christmas greetings. It isn't easy to get one photograph that brings out the best in seven people, especially when persons number six and seven are under five years old! My dad gamely agreed to be photographer and judging from his laughter, I think these outtakes are his favorites.



We were at this for nearly thirty minutes I think, when Toby's tongue escaped!



I'll post our final choice with bloggy Christmas greetings on Christmas Day.

It's an impressive thing to get seven people all neat, clean, gorgeously dressed and smiling nicely at the same time. Very impressive!! I didn't even try to get our family of FOUR doing that this year so in our Christmas letter there are two separate photos - one of the adults taken by one of the boys (slightly blurry but that adds to the charm and softens some of the wrinkles too!!) and one of the boys taken by me. So well done to your family. A great effort.
