Interactive Church

Yeah baby!

This was the experience of a lifetime AND...
 It is going to happen every 3rd Sunday!

What is it?

Through this wonderful invention that has connected us all together, the internet, we connect with, right now, 6 other churches from around the WORLD having the SAME church service at the SAME time! It was phenomenal!!!

We participated in a church service where, when we looked at the screen, we saw friends who live a 24 hour drive away, hearing and singing the same song we were, responding to the same message we heard.

Doing it again this Sunday!  Can't wait to join with two churches in Kansas City, another church from the same province we are in, a church in Holland, a church in Finland and another church that is just joining us for the first time this month...

If I ever get my butt in gear and get some pictures uploaded to picassa; I will get them on here for you to see...I have some catching up to do don't I?

Having a party

In just over a week my baby girl turns 11. EEEE - LEV - EN!!!!! For reals! What does an 11 year old want for a party?  Sounds like a spa party this year! Nope, not going to the spa but, we are purchasing face masks and nail polish and watching a Hilary Duff movie, eating grapes and berries and cheese and crackers and a bright blue cake with orange and pink gerber daisies piled on top of it.  These daisies will also be strewn across the living room.

Guest bags have bath bombs, lip balm, book marks, dessert gums, sparkly pens and maybe some candies...

Did I tell you she is going to be 11? I think I may have just (literally) felt 4 or 20 gray hairs pop right out of my head... Again, for reals!

Going to School

Yeppers...going to school and I am kinda sorta freaking out...sorta...just a little bit... I will still be working full time and doing distance learning. The great thing is the rest of the girls I work with will be taking the same course at the same time...I have study help... YAY!!!  The course? Certified Ophthalmic Assistant.  The benefit? Aside from learning oodles about the eyes and all that pertains to them, we will be made members of a profit share of the doctor's company AND he will be flying us to different conferences twice a year to get us "edumicated"... first conference on the list will be in the spring of 2012 and it sounds like it will be Chicago... Fall's conference? Vegas, baby.
