The Birds and the Bees

Seeing that I'm pregnant and all, the first question out of Isabel's mouth was "How did that baby get in there?". So we explained that the baby was in mommy's uterus, which is by mommy's tummy. "But, how did that baby get in there?". Oh oh... what do we say???? So we search and search and came up with this. "When a husband and wife love each other, they hold each other in a special way, and make a baby." She seemed to be satisfied with that answer.

Fast forward 4 months....
Isabel is about to start school (public school). A good quality that Isabel has is her stubborness. You ask good??? Yes, because once she gets an idea in her mind she will not back down. She is fully convinced that what she knows to be true is. So our job as her parents is to fill her little mind with truth. Truth about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, what the bible says, what's right and what's wrong, etc....

So back to the birds and the bees... Since we are having a baby it is the perfect opportunity to open the discussion back up so that she doesn't get the wrong information from someone else....

I went and bought 2 books. "Why boys and girls are different" By Carol Greene (ages 3-5) and "Where do babies come from?" By Ruth Hummel ages (6-8). I got both of these at Mardel's... I read them both and I like them. The are part of Learning about Sex: a series for the Christian Family.

Can't wait until my husband reads them and then we'll read the age appropriate book to Emma and Isabel.

Mission Trip 2008 - Tijuana

Here is one of the videos from our mission trip. This video highlights the VBS (Vacation Bible School). We also built a house that week, but that is highlighted in another video. The location for VBS that we chose was a vacant lot behind a vacant yellow store. On the first day we had 35 kids, on the last day we had 117.
It was an amazing trip. This video was produced by Ryan Strong one of the missionaries that on our team that we had the privledge to lead. Enjoy.

Little White Box

Little White Box

(Use fingers to make a box)
I wish I had a little white box
To put my Jesus in
I'd take him out and kiss, kiss, kiss (put hand to mouth and act like you are giving Jesus a kiss)
And put Him back again.

I wish I had a little black box
To put the devil in
I'd take him out and smash his face(clap hands together, and yell smash his face)
And put him back again.
