Stoney Run Park

Last Sunday we visited Stoney Run Park in Lowell, IN. And since some of us were sick, we thought that would better to get some fresh air and do our church service outside.

Here we are by the water.

Josiah, isn't he cute?

Here, we were looking for rocks to "skip" across the water.

Somebody was Grumpy!

The twins are telling each other something...(probably, how much fun they're having!)

Later there were more people coming, so we went into the woods that were there. The whole woods had thorns in it, so when we came out, we were all scratched up!

My dad found us and he started having fun, too (with Christian!).

After we were tired and calmed down we started our service and began singing some hymns and listening to my dad teach about Character.
We had only been to this park once before, a couple years ago. I encourage families to go there and to have fun!

Last weekend!

Last weekend we went to a two day state convention called Michiana Homeschool Conference (or MCHE) in South Bend. The main speaker was Dr. S. M. Davis. On Friday night his sermon was entitled "The Influence of the Older Children on the Younger" which we sat in on. He pointed out different Bible siblings and how they treated each other. I thought it was very good and I have been trying to try harder since then (especially, since I am the oldest)! He also taught on Saturday either two or three times (I can't remember), but we didn't sit on any.
We also have some friends who live near there (the Wesco family) and have a church called Fellowship Baptist Church, so on Sunday we went to their church. My mom wrote more about their family on her blog.
We also took some pictures there.

And here are some of them... are the girls (top to bottom is Naomi, Janai, and Joy)...



...Stephen, ready to preach...

...Samson (Dad)...

"...Like father, like son..."

...Ravi (not so into it as the other ones were!)...

...Joshua (Ahh, he couldn't reach the pillars!)...

...and here is our family picture!
