Twirling Balerina

Andrea bought a tutu from a consignment sale a week or so ago. We had Abby try it on and this is what happened!

You can also view a larger version of the above video on Google Video.

Mom's Club Farm

Andrea and Abby went with the Bellevue Mom's Club to a farm outing. Abby got to pet a pony, she wasn't too interested in sitting on it, though. They also went on a hayride pulled by a tractor. There was homemade ice cream and hot dogs for lunch. What a great time!

Boot Camp for Men

As many of you may be aware, I am a bit fan of Men's Fraternity. I have been going to the various courses for the past 5 years or so.

Instead of retaking one of the 3 main Men's Fraternity courses this year, today I started taking a new Men's Fraternity elective entitled Boot Camp for Men.

"Boot Camp for Men is about preparation for carrying out orders to win the hearts and minds of people in preparation for the King’s coming return. Boot Camp for Men is Basic Training that will Sharpen the Mind (intellect), Deepen the Affections (character), and Strengthen the Hands (service)…to accomplish God’s Mission."

I am really exited about this course. It has one or two memory verses a week, reading assignments, projects, a movie review, and a physical fitness test!

I am a BIG fan... and I encourage all men to attend Boot Camp!

Harpeth River State Park

We all went to the Harpeth River State Park this evening. It is only a couple of miles down the street from us.

We hiked down a one mile path toward the Hidden Lake. It was getting dark by the time we got there so many of our pictures came out darker than desired.

We saw several butterflies, acorns, leaves, and many pretty flowers during our hike. Abby enjoyed picking up a lot of things. I am still enamored with watching her experience things for the first time.

Weekend @ Pops & Nana's

Abby had a weekend getaway with Pops and Nana while Andrea and I went to a marriage conference by Dr. Dan B. Allender at Fellowship Bible Church.

We are so thankful to Pops and Nana for giving us the gift of time away to cultivate our marriage. Abby had a great time. They went to the farmers market and the train museum. Abby especially enjoyed pulling the train whistle!

Billiards Tournament

The development team at my client site took off early today and had a double elimination Billards Tournament. Afterwards, we went out for dinner.

We enjoyed our time together in Downtown Nashville. It was good to get to know each other in a non-work environment.

I didn't win the tournament, but I did happen to make it in the winner's bracket somehow.

Congratulations goes to Colin Callahan for 1st place!
