In Rapt Attention

Honey, how will we feed the kids?

One of the favorite things people tell me when I try and explain the way I’m doing college is…
“Well, how are you ever going to find a spouse that way?  I met my husband/wife at college!”
Now I have NOTHING against meeting your spouse at college.  My parents met at college.  It’s a great place to meet guys and gals.

But if that’s the ONLY reason I’m going to college (and the only reason you can think of for why I should go to college) than we have a serious problem!  That is one expensive husband.  :-) 

And if I have loads of debt so that I can find him, and he has loads of debt so that he can find me… how are we going to feed the kids?  Read the Rest Here!

Preparing for the Festival

A lot of work goes into preparing for the Film Festival.  We do things like...

Support Chick-fil-A

Buy large quantities of notebooks and paper... okay, that wasn't for the Festival.


We set up a LOT!

And hang a lot of paper

Smile for photos!

Baked some more muffins!

And bake cakes!

Prepared for five overnight guests

The boys bunked in one room. 

Quick Funny Photo

Any musicians, parents of musicians, or siblings of musicians can relate to this.  (as can our 12 year old cat who hides when the strings comes out.)
