7/4/15 broken boilers and mission trips…

written 1/21/14 – Our boiler broke yesterday. When we got up it was chilly in the house, not cold, just chilly. The pilot light had gone out. We have lit it before, so we tried again. Sometimes in the summer the wind gets in through an open window and blows out the pilot light. But, this is winter and the windows are closed. It didn’t light. We found the directions and tried again. It didn’t light. We called the maintenance man. He came over said that a part had broken and he replaced it. While he was here he showed us the correct way to relight the pilot. I asked if there was any preventative maintenance that we should be doing and he said no. We already bleed the pipes in the house once a year. Have you had a quiet week? 12112

We went to a mission trip meeting tonight. Maggie and Beth are going on a mission trip this summer. They went on a mission trip two years ago with the church to New Orleans for a week and they did a camp in the morning and went to neighborhoods in the afternoon. The girls are really looking forward to going back and helping in the camp with the kids again. It is a great chance for them to be the hands and feet of Christ.

The next mission trip meeting is next Tuesday. People can still sign up for the mission trips. There are also two other trips scheduled for that week.

Thanks for stopping by. If you like my blog, please stop in again tomorrow!!!

1/13/15 youth group and mission trip…

written 8/24/13 – The youth group at church kicked off their new year so the first week the parents came to hear about the plans for the year. They talked about the topic for the next year and introduced some of the parents who lead the youth group. I guess they would be called advisers. There are some retreats coming up too. There is a Fall and a Winter retreat. They are in the local area. Not in town but only an hour or so drive away. Next summer there are two mission trips. They have mission trips for the youth every other year. The adults have mission trips every year that they can volunteer on. The girls went last year and really enjoyed it. They did a Bible study in the morning and went to play grounds in the afternoon to play with the local kids. The girls talked a lot when they got home about how the kids in this area for whatever reason don’t have a lot of adult interaction. The kids needed a lot of hugs and liked to be right next to the mission team. It made a big impression on the girls. We have started selling candy bars to pay for the trip. I am glad that the kids have a heart for missions.



11/11/14 summer school and mission trips…

written 7/18/12 – Maggie had to take English in summer school. Summer school started a week before their mission trip for church. She had enough done in the class that the teacher let her have the week off to go on the trip. Maggie had worked really hard to get enough done to be allowed to leave for a week. I told her that the class came first. If the teacher said that she needed to stay and be present in the class, then that is how it would be.
There were thirty-two kids and seven adults on the mission trip. They took two vans and an SUV. One of the vans pulled a trailer that had their luggage and supplies for the vacation Bible school in it. The kids went to New Orleans for a week to do a vacation Bible study in the morning and to go and play with the kids in the neighborhoods in the afternoon.


11/6/14 William signs up for college…

written 4/2/12 – We signed up William today for summer classes at college.

Beth got her Prom dress, shoes and purse this weekend. We took her friend with us. She shops better with a friend.  Beth got a knee length dress. I was happy and so was she.

Maggie’s air gun does shoot out a candle at 20 feet. What a relief. She redesigned it at least three times. Her designs came off of U-Tube. Each design needed a bucket and something to push the air out of the bucket toward the candle. The problem is that each new design needed a smaller hole cut into the bottom of the bucket. We now have three buckets with holes in the bottom of them. I can put plants in them and have good drainage holes. She needs to write the paper that goes with it. It is all due tomorrow.

We are almost done selling candy bars for the girl’s mission trip. Selling was fun for a while, but now I would just like to be done with it. Selling candy bars in the winter isn’t stressful, but as soon at the weather gets hot, I spend a lot of time wondering if everything is going to melt.


8/19/14 moving furniture and mission trip meeting…

written 2/1/12 – Maggie and Beth share a room now. So far it is working out well. The girls moved the rooms themselves. Since they didn’t want any help, I moved the boxes in the basement so that they aren’t in front of the shoe shelf. We need to sort through the shoes on the shelf and have the kids get rid of everything that doesn’t fit. It will be nice to get all of the extra shoes out of the kitchen and onto the shoe shelf.

We went to the mission trip meeting at church. There were a lot of kids there. The meeting was about how to raise money for the trip, what the kids would see and do on the trip and they had time for the families to ask questions. It looked very organized to me. They did say that everyone should go with an open mind because sometimes plans do change. If the supplies don’t show up or if they had planned on an outside project and it starts to rain, everything changes. They said that everyone needs to be ready to make an adjustment without complaining. The girls each saw someone that they knew at the meeting. I was glad about that since we are still so new to the church.


8/18/14 church mission trip and moving rooms…

written 1/18/12 – The girls want to go on a mission trip with the church to New Orleans. We got them boxes of candy bars to start selling to pay for the trip. We know that Beth is allowed to sell candy at her school. Maggie is going to check Monday and see if she can sell candy too.

We are going to move Beth’s bed into Maggie’s room. They like to be in the same room, and Beth’s room has the old style of outlets, so Beth can’t plug anything in. I am not sure that this will work, but we will try it. When I asked Maggie what she thought about moving Beth into her room she said yes right away.. Maggie started yesterday moving her things…book shelf, toys, table… into her closet. She said that she would rather have these things in her closet than in Beth’s room.

blog income
I have been looking for a way to bring extra cash into my family without getting a second job. I just want enough extra income to be able to pay the bills but still be able to have time to enjoy my kids. I tried a lot of web sites that offered envelope stuffing, they were all dead ends. Then I tried blogging. I figured that if enough people visited my blog then I could add advertisements and get paid. If I monetized my blog I could take the profit to help my family. I have found Blogsvertise. With them I can have advertisements on my blog, or have guest posts or have banner ads. I am still new to this.
