Children's Choir Sings Today

Trent's choir sang during the service this morning. I found out on Wednesday that he had a solo...and he came home with NO MUSIC! As you can tell from the short video he didn't really know the words.

Preparing for Baseball Season 2008!

We took a short trip to Target last night. You know the kind of trip I'm talking about...the one that we go to walk around and only need shampoo and then we end up walking out with $40.00 of other stuff.

Well, Trent was excited because he found out that the 2008 baseball cards have arrived! Only one change from last season...the price has gone up dramatically. Last year a single pack of Topp's cost 99 cents. That was great for Trent because he got $1.00 for his allowance each week(minus the amount taken out for his offering at church and 25 cents put into his savings bank) so he could purchase a pack every 2 weeks.

Now the cards are $1.99 a pack and Trent's allowance has only been raised to $1.50 per week. He still takes out 25 cents for offering and 25 cents for savings a week so he is left with $1.00 of spendable "income." However, Trent was very excited that he was going to be able to purchase a pack of cards each week (Mom and Dad cover the tax) instead of every 2 weeks. It really busted his bubble to find out that was not going to be the case this year.

Oh well! I guess Trent has learned a great lesson about inflation.

Celebrating Scout Sunday

Thank you to my sister-in-law for telling us that this Sunday was Scout Sunday. Trent was very excited about getting to wear his Cub Scout uniform to church. I thought I would post a picture of three of the Cub Scouts from our church.

From L-->R - Conner is a Tiger, Trent is a Wolf, and cousin Dylan is a Bear.
