This is LARRY, not FLOYD!

Today we had an awesome afternoon with our newlywed class members at Lake Murray. BJ and Lindsay Belvelle hosted our lake day. The food and weather were just perfect. Kynn and I are so blessed to be serving these young newlywed couples.
As we were swimming, I noticed that something was coming to join us. No, this is NOT Floyd. Believe it or not, this is LARRY. He hangs out at BJ's lake house and loves to be around people. He actually got too close to me several times. I guess this is the summer for ducks in my life. Never in a 1000 years would have dreamed I would be playing with ducks! Go figure! This is crazy. :)

Scuba Certified! Summer 09


Training began first in the classroom and then we practiced our skills in the pool at Columbia College last Saturday and Sunday.



This Saturday and Sunday we did five open water dives in Lake Murray, also know as, Lake Murky. We had very low visibility. Today, I actually had a fish touch my goggles. That was wierd.


My new scuba friends.

This will make you smile!

On the July 4th, we had our annual party at Bobby and Marlene's house. Floyd came for the evening. (More pictures of the whole day coming) McLean and Ben were introduced to a "real" duck. We had so much fun watching them as they got to know Floyd. By the end of the day, McLean became quite tickled watching Floyd swim around.

LAUGHTER: GOOD FOR THE SOUL!

A thought on Wisdom

God's wisdom is pure, peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy, good fruit, unwavering without hypocrisy. James 3:17

If you need some wisdom, ask Him. He'll give it. Today, allow wisdom to guide your day, not feelings. "Feelings left to themselves will enslave and deplete us." (Jennifer Rothschild)

Vacation June 2009

On Tuesday, June 16Th, our family headed to Palm Beach, Florida for a family vacation. After an eight hour ride we arrived in Juniper, Florida which is about 15 minutes from Palm Beach. Wed. we just hung out and got familiar with the area and prepared for 2 days of scuba diving. Thursday and Friday were diving days. I went along on the boat and kept watch while the guys were down under. Both days they took two dives and loved every minute of it. Christopher said, "I feel like I was swimming in the aquarium at Riverbanks Zoo." On the first day of dives, right as the captain gave the "OK", a monster size sea turtle came right up to the boat. I was amazed and so excited. (WHERE WAS MY CAMERA?) Thursday afternoon we all went snorkeling in the crystal blue water. Friday after the dives, we headed to Orlando for the night and stayed at the Grande Cypress Villa, which was very nice. Sat. morning we headed to SeaWorld for the day. Way back when, we took the boys to Sea World so it was fun to visit again. Sat. evening we drove to St. Augustine and on Sunday morning took a segway tour of that historic city. It was great fun and a treat to have all five of us together. (Above are pictures from our vacation. Click on the arrow to make the pictures move more quickly.) Hope you enjoy them.
