Fw: How Smart is Your Right Foot?

This is so funny that it will boggle your mind. And you
will keep trying it at least 50 more times to see if
you can outsmart your foot. But you can’t!!! 

1. While sitting at your desk, lift your right foot off
the floor and make clockwise circles with

2. Now, while doing this, draw the number "6" in the air
with your right hand. Your foot will change

I told you so… And there is nothing you can do about

Make sure you pass this on to your friends… They won’t
be able to believe it


Less Than 2 Weeks!

It’s less than 2 weeks till school starts again.  I’m going into Juniour High this year.  I hope I do well this year in school. My brothers still go to elementery school.  I hope these last two weeks of summer vacation go by very vry slowly.  So I can enjoy the best of summer.  We are still going camping one more time with my Aunt and Uncle this weekend, and I am looking forward to that. 

VBS Update

Well, the week of VBS is over, and the final performance was on Sunday.  I helped all week with the video machine, starting, stopping and rewinding, over and over again for all the different groups that came in.  Ii also helped with any other things that needed to be done.  I had a great time, and so did all the other kids.  I’d really like to help again next year.

You Are The Carpenter

You Are The Carpenter


An elderly carpenter was ready to retire. He told his employer-contractor of
his plans to leave the house-building business and live a leisurely life with
his wife enjoying his extended family. He would m iss the paycheck, but he
needed to retire. They could get

       The contractor was sorry
to see his good worker go and asked if he could build just one more house as a
personal favor.  The carpenter said yes, but in time it was easy to see
that his heart was not in his work. He resorted to shoddy workmanship and used
inferior materials. It was an unfortunate way to end a dedicated career. When
the carpenter finished his work the employer came to inspect the house. He
handed the front-door key to the carpenter. "This is your house," he said, "my
gift to you."

       The carpenter
was shocked! What a shame! If he had only known he was building his own house,
he would have done it all so differently.


it is with us. We build our lives, a day at a time, often putting less than
our best into the building. Then with a shock we realize we have to live in
the house we have built. If we could do it over, we’d do it much
differently.  But we cannot go

Peace Country Gospel Jamboree

Hi Everyone, 🙂

Last weekend, the long weekend in fact, we went to the Peace Country Gospel Jamboree near Beaverlodge, Alta.  My family and I had a great time listen to the country (and bluegrass) music.  The very last performers were Ricky Skaggs and his band.  But it was disappointing that at the beginning of Ricky Skaggs one and a half hour performance, it started to rain. (Ricky Skaggs asked “How come every time I come to Canada, it wants to rain?”) Most people stayed for the Ricky’s performance.  George Canyon also was their (performing 3 times for about 50 minutes each time) and people say that more people may have come to see George Canyon than Ricky Skaggs. Most people there may have been Mennonites (my relatives being some).  Tim Lovelace, a musician/comedian (christian of course) was also there, but his wife couldn’t be there due to the recent birth of their child.  We bought one of his DVDs and the boys have just enjoyed watching it.
Also today, since Telus/Telecommunications Workers Union is on strike, Bell is flying a blimp like air craft advertising their phone company.  I took some pictures, and they will be posted in a few days, so check back for updates.  My cousin’s (TELUS) phone broke down and it hasn’t gotten repaired yet, probably due to the TELUS Strike.  The blimp is still out there somewhere.  It was first spotted (by us) around 11:30, and is still flying after about 3 hours of flying.  Remember that pictures are coming soon.
We had plans to go camping after the jamboree.  Andrew was not feeling to well the day we were going to go.  We decided to go home instead.  The following day after we came home, I got a headache.  And if we had gone camping, we would have missed that Bell Blimp flying around town. I hope we go camping another time instead.
