Happy Birthday!

A friend loves at all times... Proverbs 17:17

Yesterday was my friend Alyssa's birthday. She was eleven, and I want to write about how special she is to me.
One of the things I admire about Alyssa is how much time she spends with her little sisters. They love her so much, every time they see her they run over to her and want her to hold them. Her family was blessed with twins last year, and Alyssa has done a great job helping her mama.

I have so many memories of us playing that it would be impossible to write about them all. I'll list a few: swimming in the pool, riding bikes, playing Polly Pockets, playing hide and seek and hiding in the huge dumpster, and watching babies in the nursery.I could list many more I have so many. (We've known each other since we were babies.)

Thank you Alyssa for the great example that you are to me!!!!

The Scales Are Tipped!

But which way?

See if you can guess from the poem:

Sticky fingers,
dirty face,
rugs and pillows
out of place,

Cars and tractors
here and there,
Blocks and boats

Gold and silver
have I none,
But worth a million
is my Son.

What I learned

I learned many things at the conference, but I'll list the most important ones here.

-I learned about debt, and how it enslaves you.
-I learned how we all need to have a biblical vision of the world.
-I learned more about how our country is falling and more about economics in general.
-I learned about responsibility.
-I learned that I need to be stong even if faced with persecution for who I am.
-I learned how not only is abortion killing thousands of babies, but the birth control pill is too.

Family Economics Conference

We got back from the Conference Tuesday. We were gone for about a week, and it's good to be home now. I learned alot and had a great time. I didn't get as many pictures as Shelbi did, but here's a few of the good ones. ;)

We ate the Chick- Fil-A food in the lobby every day. They provided a chicken sandwhich, an apple, a bag of potato chips, a bottle of water, and a cookie. This is everyone eating at the lunch break. The one problem with the lunches was that we never ate the apples on both days. But I guess that was our fault. At the end of the conference we had sixteen apples, plus the whole bag we had brought from home!!!!

This is the book table. We came home with lots of new books.:)

Cute little Si-Man! He's the whole family's baby and he knows it!

I would put some pictures of all of the speakers here, but I had to zoom up so close they're all blurry.:( Sorry!!!
