Budding environmentalists

I have the coolest kids in the universe! We've been talking a lot over the past year about reducing our carbon footprint. Pretty soon we're going to be watching No Impact Man with some friends. We've been talking a lot about the movie even though we haven't seen it yet. So, we're all going to work on keeping the lights off in the house when we don't need them. That's where this picture comes from. The kids decided we should eat dinner by candlelight to save electricity!

choir videos

The kids' church choirs sang this Sunday. This Sunday was the first time Ray ever sang with the choir. He was really excited about it! The first video is of the Chalice Sparks with Olivia in it, and the second video is of the Chalice Flames with Ray and Beth Ann.

Great quote

We can learn things from the Nazis: "The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders... All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country." - Hermann Goering - Field Marshal of the Luftwaffe
