In honor of the Olympics…

In women’s gymnastics, Rilyn Paquette enters the arena. Hopes are high that she will bring back the gold for the USA.

Her beam routine is superb!

Her vault-excellent!

The floor exercise is flawless!

Now we bring you sliding (kinda like diving) and Ella Paquette is ready for the challenge! She’s been practicing this all her life.
She poses for a quick photo op

Her sliding skills are near perfect!

Minimal splash so we should expect high scores…

A quick shower and then she must complete her last slide.

Well, that wraps up todays coverage of the Olympics, now we’ll leave you with the medal ceremony.

**Gymnastics at Capital Gymnastics, the pool is at Scott Mentzer pool in Pflugerville.

The toothpaste sermon

We “impress” our children everyday with who we are, what we think, or what we do. These moments may come to our children through our words, but family moments contain more power and lasting effects when they come through instructive events our children can observe.

On Monday nights we have “Family Night” where we have family devotions and our girls are actively engaged in learning. Tonight James taught about making our speech pleasing to God using a tube of toothpaste. After hearing a lot of ‘poopoo words’ to each other lately, I thought the girls needed to be reminded of how powerful the tongue can be.

Here they are with their tubes. The girls were allowed to squeeze all of the toothpaste out of their tubes.

Then daddy told them to put the toothpaste back into the tubes.

“That’s right! The very same thing is true of the words we speak. Have you ever said something that hurt someone’s feelings and heard them say, “You take that back!” You can’t take it back, can you? Once you have said it, it is said. You can’t put the words back in your mouth any more than you can squeeze this toothpaste back into the tube. That is why we need to be very careful about the things we say. The Bible says, “He who holds his tongue is wise.” Proverbs 10:19

“Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer.” Psalm 19:14  Once we have said it, we can’t take it back, so let’s make sure that our words are pleasing to God.

Playing together

It is so fun to see Rilyn and Ella play together.  Here they are playing with their doctor kit.  Obviously, Ella is the patient.

Say “Awwwww!”

Do I trust this doctor???

“You’ll be needing a shot right in your head.”
