  You probably remember the post that I wrote around Christmas time of how bad of a storm we were receiving.  We are receiving another one of those types of storms; however, it is not as bad.  We are home bound, listening to XM radio, and feeling rather lazy.  The best news that came out of this whole ordeal was Bible Quiz Practice was canceled today.  The bad news is our Quiz Tournament is Friday.   In the picture below you can see a dark spot to the left of the house and just before the third telephone pole down, it is a car.  Some brilliant person, probably a native of Mississippi or Arkansas, thought they could make it through a snow drift.  They probably had four wheel drive and was feeling the kind of adventurous feeling you feel when you jump a clothesline.  When they were coming upon the snow drift they probably realized that the snow drift was bigger than their car, but then they remembered that they had four wheel drive.  The brilliant person probably put it in four low and took a plunge.  They are probably at home realizing that they might not be able to get their car back again until the winter in North Dakota has passed.  They got stuck yesterday before the toughest part of the storm came.  I wish this person the best of luck.
  The next picture that I am going to show is a picture of our gym door.  It has not done such a good job of keeping that snow on the outside instead of the inside.  We would fire the door but we are in the middle of winter and realize we must wait till summer before we do anything about this problem.  When summer comes we probably will forget about the whole scenario and the door we keep on making its millions.  The good news in this situation is the door is not next to the basketball hoop.

  One more thing that I am going to say in this long post.  Jared took today off school because of the storm, I already had the day off because I live in a free country and with my parents permission choose to go to school four days a week just like I did it when I went to a christian school in Oregon.  Jared must feel honored to be paying for school and taking days off at the same time, but if he does not go to school tomorrow then there will be a petition thrown by the home school students of this home school.  Let us all hope and pray that if this does happen the educators will grant the petition and we will once again be able to listen to XM radio and not accomplish very much work.

Nothing Much

There really has not been anything of interest that has happened over the last week in a half.  Quizzing has started, school has resumed for all of the us kids, and the pace in life has started to pick up again.  Probably the most interesting thing that happened was last Saturday.  Here at our church we have a thriving bus ministry.  One of the kids on the bus after Sunday School on the 3rd had a seizure and died. Last Saturday was the funeral, he was only 10.  It was held at our church and around 200 people came.  Other than that it has been life as normal.

Youth Retreat 09'

It was great!  Bro. Chuck Coburn from Orlando, Florida was our speaker and he did a phenomenal job.  He was a great basketball player, ping pong player, beat boxer, and, I almost forgot, great preacher.  There was a challenge issued for someone to beat him in ping pong after he pretty much beat everyone there including myself. On the last day I was able to pull of the upset.  Later on that day we played some basketball.  The big game was between the campers and the staff.  After Bro. Coburn missed a game winning three and the campers won, my Youth Retreat was awesome.   The services were awesome.  Bro. Coburn had a great testimony of how he got into the church after being recruited by the UNC baseball team.  He went on to backslide and be a drug dealer.  After getting busted and surviving a few scares he was able to get back into the church.  I am sorry that I didn't take any pictures.  My brother took a couple though, so here you are.

Happy New Years

I stayed up way past midnight, matter in fact it is 6:23 as I am starting to write this post. This fact I will not be happy about when I wake up this afternoon with half the day gone. Right now I have a couple of friends over and they have been playing video games both on the computer and on the 360. Finally given the chance to get on the computer I took advantage. As soon as I get back off the computer my friend will regain his position in playing video games for the rest of the morning. We had a good "Wash Night Service" my dad spoke on sleeping, which sounds pretty good right now.  I hope you are all enjoying your sleep.  I was at Youth Retreat between the 27th- 30th and was not able to post anything.  My friend is having withdrawals from his video game so I must end this post.  Happy New Year everyone!
