Calvin makes me laugh.

The other evening while our family was having our evening family devotions the kids asked if they could start off by singing the books of the bible song. We think it is adorable when they sing this all together, and even getting through this song normally without confusion is a crack up!
On this particular evening, Sydney's voice had died off right at Song- of- Sol-o-men. Calvin went on with
Isaiah, Jeremiah, Lamentations, Ezekiel, Daniel.....then paused, looked at us with one eyebrow up and his head cocked a bit and said with total seriousness the name of the book in the bible that he assumed had to be next...Travis?
So, most of you will get why this is so funny, but for those of you who don't, lots of our friends choose names for their children from the bible or from the books of the bible. Most of these names, with the exception of Lamentations (so far... just kidding!) he knows as friends, so the logical name next in line was of course Travis, not Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah. Jonah, Micah, Na-hum, Habakakuk, Zephani-ah. Haggai, Zechariah, and the last book Malachi!
Anyway, I'm sure had we not all stopped to giggle he would have gone on with Christian, Caleb, Luke, Jake, Elijah, Augustine!

Beach day

We love the beach. I can't believe that last week was the first time we went all summer! We will being going more soon, as the summer comes to an end.
The summer flew by. I can't believe that school is starting up already. I don't know how that happened. thankfully we love the beach in the fall. The water is warm, everyone else is at work or school and we get a beautiful warm sandy beach all to ourselves. We look forward to the fall all year. The whole summer Sydney has been reminding me of how she is ready for fall and is thrilled that September is here.  
Sydney will be starting 2nd grade and Calvin, although still not old enough to be in Kindergarten officially, will be starting up a kindergarten like school year. We will see how that goes!
