It's Snowing...

And it still is. So far we have gotten 6 inches of snow. It has been snowing all day without stopping. The weather man said we are in the worst part of the storm at the moment.

This morning I took our 15 month old puppy, Kipper, outside to let him play in the snow. He loved it. Since we don't have a fence in our yard and we are not allowed to have Kipper outside without a leash on, I had to hold on to Kipper's leash while he ran around the yard. It was kind of hard because every where Kipper went I went too and he has a lot of energy! My siblings had fun throwing snowballs at Kipper, (specifically Tim) Taking pictures of him in the snow, (specifically Arlene) and giving him snow to eat, all which are things Kipper enjoyed very much except maybe the picture taking part.

Tomorrow, Church is changed to 1 o'clock p.m. That is going to be the only service, so that people won't have to drive in the snow at night. It stinks that we are only having one service instead of two but I'm glad that church is not totally canceled.

Have a great day and enjoy this winter season.

    We still have some snow, although we are expecting more before the 25th.

    Sound like Kipper had a lot of fun!!

    The changed schedule is good...less travel in that stuff.

Saturday: Bible Studies

Last Saturday I went to an all day bible study. It was really good! The theme of the classes was our role in the local congregation, "Let No One Despise Your Youth" and responsibility. There was about sixty young people there. It was really encouraging to see so many kids there who want to better serve the Lord.

What are you all planning to do this week? My family and I are planning to go on a field trip during the day on Wednesday.

Hope you all have a great rest of the week!

The 4-H Fair

Last weekend my county had their 4-H fair! It was a lot of fun! My family and I went to the fair all three days, Thursday night, all day Friday and most of Saturday. Our club sells drinks and candy to help make money for our club. We also have a sand art booth. For a little bit on Friday I helped run the sand art booth. That job meant I had to deal with the money, give the kids their plastic containers (that were in different shapes and sizes) to put their sand in and putting or hammering the cap or cork on the top of the kid's finished art. It was fun and challenging to work there because I was the only person working at the booth for most of the time. I was busy most of the time but it was a lot of fun!

For a little bit on Thursday night, Friday morning and Saturday afternoon I helped with parking cars. On Thursday, I helped put schedules in blue bags and on Friday Morning, I collected money. My two sisters, Connie and Arlene also collected money while my brother, Tim helped direct traffic with our Seeing Eye puppy, Kipper, who sat by his side the whole time. Saturday afternoon Tim and I helped direct parking. Tim’s job was to point people into parking spots while I stood in an intersection and directed people to the left if they wanted to park and to the right if they wanted to leave. Doing that was fun but I think my favorite job was collecting the money.
Besides doing all those things, I got to spend time with lots of different people, participate in two of our clubs demos and lots more. The whole weekend was fun.

What did you all do last weekend?

    Some of the members of the church here got a little surprise birthday party together for us on Sunday, after the potluck. =)

    Our county fair was last week as well, we were there all week...I mostly worked in our county 4-H archery booth. I also ran the "Cloverleaf Cafe" for a day. Basicly it is the same thing as your candy stand, we sell the same stuff. Instead of it benifiting one club however, it benifits the county 4-H.

    Oh, and Ethan collected parking fees at the front gate for 2 days of the fair, he loved that job!!

Camps

Wow, I have not updated in the longest time...any way my two sisters and I got back from DOV camp about a week ago. It was really fun, encouraging and helpful. Today my brother, Tim, got back from Boy Scout camp and three weeks ago my siblings and I all came home from F.C. camp. That camp was fun too. Now we are planning to go to no more camps untill the end of August, which, Lord willing, Tim will go to a men leadership camp and then at the end of September, my whole family and I will go to Homeschooling camp! That is what I have been doing so far this summer.
Hopefully I can update in less than 17 days instead of more then 17 months! :) Sharon
