There are many events and happenings today that can remind us of stories in the Bible that taught us lessons (like Jesus' parables). One fine day this week, we had such a happening! It had been a cloudy and on and off rainy day. We were standing outside looking at the gorgeous cloud formations when a loud plunk attracted our attention. We looked around just in time to hear another such noise and see it's source, a large spiky object which we identified as a hailstone! As we watched more an more of this strangely shaped hail fall to the ground, we were struck by the way they seemed to be hurled out of the heavens, rather than just falling to the ground. It reminded us of what one might call the remote control hail story in the Bible found in Joshua 10:11. Following are some pictures of these remarkable hailstones!
June 12, 2006 was the day of our homeschool groups end of school picnic. The evening was filled with family fellowship, playing games and of course eating food! Below is just a highlight of all that took place that day. Enjoy!
One of the last games we played was water balloon volleyball! What a blast!! (Especially when the balloons didn't make it into the other sheet!) Afterward, those that hadn't already gotten wet, were for sure, thoroughly drenched when we brought out the regular water balloons!
