Dinosaurs, butterflies, and bugs... Oh my!

We took the kids to The Museum of Natural Science in Houston a couple of weeks ago. We went earlier this summer, and they loved it. Daniel and I didn't really think they'd get too much out of it, but we were wrong. They talked about it all the time.... to anyone who would listen. They talked about the dinosaurs, the butterflies, the bugs, the spiders, and the animals. Cal even prayed about the "dinosaur museum" every night before bed. We had to go again. My mom was in town and went with us. She just had to see this amazing museum that the kids were always talking about. In the last picture, you can see Cal's excitement when we entered the dinosaur exhibit. He's even holding on to his ticket.

I just have to share....

I was driving by Planned Parenthood in Bryan today. There are almost always people out front with pro-life signs..... usually with harsh and scary (but true) words. But today I saw a sign that took my breath away. I had never seen it before. It was powerful.... simple..... true.

Abortion stops a beating heart.

Whoa.... now doesn't that make a lot of sense? How can anyone argue that? I remember going in for my very first appointment when I was pregant with the twins. I was only 7 weeks along. I remember seeing their little hearts fluttering on the ultrasound machine. Two perfect tiny heartbeats.

First Day of School

My babies just started school! They are in a 3 yr. old program at St. Thomas Early Learning Center. They LOVE it! And, I LOVE it! They go T, W, and R from 12:15-3:15. They just started yesterday (they only went for 1/2 day) and today was their first full day. Don't they look so big standing there with their backpacks on?
