My daughter knows what it means when poppy gets ready in the morning: Poppy is getting ready to go to work, that is, to to grab his backpack, fill it with books, and then spend the day at his desk in the library. Lately she has come up with an interesting solution:
Sneak into Poppy’s backpack and spend the day with him in the library. Sounds like fun right? Poppy is sure to get lots of work done if my little buddy comes along

I can totally relate with THIS video, which shows a dad sneezing and then his twin babies imitating his sneeze. My little Melody is quite the imitator, and unfortunately she doesn’t just imitate the good. Her mimicking has revealed several areas in which I need to work on my manners. For example, one of the biggest laughs I had lately was when we had just finished eating lunch. We were sitting around the table talking, Melody was in her high-chair. Suddenly I burped, and Melody proceeded to “burp” too. She was definitely imitating me. All of us, even Melody, were rolling in laughter. I’m not going to tell you about the time we were on a walk and I spit in the grass . . .
This principle emphasized a basic parenting lesson: children will imitate what they see in us, and not just things like our burps at the dinner table. Am I modelling patience and Christ-likeness?

We returned last night from a week in Georgia, where my wife’s folks live.
Thanks for the wonderful visit, Mom and Dad, we love you guys. Now, HJ and I are home and eagerly preparing for my sister to spend the week with us, and then for my cousin and his wife to spend the following week. Don’t you love summer!

Well, it’s time to pack my bags for Germany. Trying to decide what to bring and what to leave behind is not an easy decision. I’ve narrowed it down to these four books:
(My Bible, a book on James, and two books I’m reviewing)
Can you blame me? How in the world am I going to be away from my girls for a whole week? I thought I would also share this picture with you: Joann, a friend in Louisburg, watched Melody on Tuesday for a few hours. When I got home from work this is what I saw:
