Art Gallary

What do you do with ALL the drawings that you get from
your children or grandchildren?
I don't have the heart to throw them away.
I love each one!

We started taping them up on a door 
and when we ran out of room,
it started down the hallway wall.

Now that wall is full!

So, down off the walls, the artwork will come.
 Then into 3-ringed notebooks.
Each grandchild will get their very own binder.

Eventually, I'll give them their binders.
They will be full of fun memories and their
 drawings that they had drawn for
Papa and me!

Right now,
 I'm still sorting them out 
 by grandchild.
I only have two notebooks.
Looks like I need more!
At least 5 more!

Manners Class

Kimmy, our daughter, Home-Schools her children.
I am so pleased with her abilities
and the progress of 
each child.

To my surprise, she asked me to do a
segment on Manners.

She must of remembered when she and her brother were threaten and then finally had manners class, during summer vacation!

Yup, I had both kids sit down and 
we went over all 
the particulars of manners and etiquette.

Something I don't think both forgot,
 because I was pretty stick and thorough.

If you know me,
 you know that I'm pretty serious when it comes to
teaching and learning.
I got right to work and learned as much as I could.
(I only had one hour to teach this class)

First, we started with the difference between
Manner vs, Etiquette.
Do you know the difference?
(answer at the end)

Some kids were serious about the subject.
Others were easily distracted.

After going over the facts, 
they did some hands-on practice.

I had them set, a place setting,
 (BMW - bread, meal, water)
Pass food to the right, with please and thank you's.
Which way to approach a chair and which way to get up.
How to leave your silverware when finished with a meal.
Wait until the hostess sits and picks up her fork before eating.
How to place a napkin on your lap and where it goes when you need to leave the table and come back.
And much more!

That night they all came over for dinner.
It was the final test!
I graded them on the things we learned!

Levi took it more serious then I thought!
He came to dinner with a Cheat Sheet
and asked if he could use it!

As it turned out, he didn't need it.
Levi and all the rest did a great job!

Levi's Cheat Sheet
I'll try to explain this picture because it's so cute!

Top, middle is a chair with arrows showing
which way to enter and exit when sitting.

The "hand" on the left is showing which way to pass food to the right.
The "hands" on the right are passing salt & pepper, together!
The X and arrow, ???
The drawing on the right edge is him burping with his hand over his mouth,


And now for the answer to the question
Manners vs. Etiquette.

Manners are things you do that show respect and courtesy to others.
Etiquette are the set rules for different occasions,

Going Political...

Yup, stating MY OPINION!

This is our flag pole on a stormy day.

The up coming November election
 has been and will be,
stormy and discouraging for both sides.

I'm suggesting that, no matter what,
 get out and

I've read and heard others say,
 they aren't going to vote this
November and that is a shame.
Yes, shame on THEM !

It's not just about the Presidential election!!
There are thousands of important races going on.
Not just the White House,
U.S. Senate, Congressional districts 
and your very own state governments. 
counties, cities and villages.
There are issues, that need to be voted on.
They ALL need your vote and support.

Let's not forget about our troops,
who need your vote and support, too!
They live to protect YOU and your family.
They are counting on ALL of
us to do the right thing, by voting.


We need to elect people who 
 uphold and protect Biblical truths or 
at least those who 
wouldn't work against it.

Here are some resources for voters guidelines, 
to help us.

No matter how stormy it is,
or darker days will prevail.


"For the kingdom is the Lords, and He rules over the nations."
Psalm 22:28

"But Gidion said to them, "I will not rule over you, nor shall my son rule over you, the Lord shall rule over you."
Judges 8:23
