What's Up

We have been spending many hours working on the youth room at our church. It has literallly been an "extreme makeover" situation! We are tired, but thrilled with how the results are looking. We're having a big unveiling/open house this Sunday night. Looking forward to that a lot.

We enjoyed having Brent here for a quick visit and to perform at our weekly coffee house ministry a couple of weeks ago. We have such a great time being together, and our kids of course think he's just the coolest thing since.....well, anything cool. :) So good to be with friends.

Derek's computer just returned home today after weeks stuck in Texas for repair. Unfortunately, the timing of his sending it off for repair co-incided w/the hurricane disasters there in TX, so we were beginning to think we may never get the computer back. After I get the pics from Brent's visit uploaded, (the few I got to take before the camera died...grrrr....I'll put those up.)

We're doing well. Kids are growing like crazy.

Looking forward to watching the debate tonight. Not that it will make much difference, I'm afraid. These debates have done little to really get to the heart of matters. But I still watch them....they rile me up a little more! :) Supposedly the polls show McCain falling behind with three weeks to go. I am trying to prepare myself for the possibility of an Obama presidency, but oh how I cringe at the the thought. So that's 2 or 3 cents on my political thoughts.....a little but enough.

Blessings.
UPDATE: I decided to STEAL pics from Brent's facebook! :) So here are a few just for the kicks of it. :)

Wow... she lives!
Do you remember that the polls showed that John Kerry was ahead too? Thinking about that gives me some "hope" hee hee.

So nice to know you all are still there... doing well.
Thinkin' of you as you launch into the new ministry.
If Obama wins, I'm concerned about our freedom to homeschool-- especially with a democratic mojority in congress. I pray people will see what a socialist Obama's record shows him to be.
Blessings!

I clicked on your blog without much hope, and surprise and surprise. You're back.
Sorry our conversation got cut short, call me back!
Look up the polls are getting tighter once again. There's still hope.
