Second Volleyball Practice!!

We had a great time at volleyball! 

Like I promised we have pictures! Here are a couple...

Our friend Gabe did not want any just me and some friends.  The pictures aren't high-quality because we took them with a cellphone.

Although we have no proof Gabe was there she was and did a great job.  =)

A poem from a friend...

From a good friend who has many talents and one of them is poetry.

The room is quiet
The trees are bare
The fire burns in the morning air
The birds are sleeping
No sound at all but the fire and the wind
The forest choir does not sing
In that air in the world between
The waters still at rest in a dream that goes past
And yet the tombs of the ancients still stand
In a deep slumber of the time that once was theirs
To wake is their dream from a deep slumber

Sir Rowan and the Camerian Conquest

Reviewed and written by Olivia

Destinies Desire…

Sir Rowan and the Camerian Conquest is a true knight’s tale. When Sir Rowan meets an all time Knight and personal hero, Sir Aldwyn, he will get a chance to live his dream becoming a knight of the Prince. When his fame starts uprising he finds it hard to stay dedicated.

After Sir Rowan is dumped to die alone, he finds someone to help him out of his pain and suffering. Rowan starts to feel more strength build in his body and more comfortable with the person who is healing more then his old wounds and scars.

Sir Rowan and the Camerian Conquest is the sixth book in the series The Knights of Arrethtrae by Chuck Black. In this book – like the other Knights of Arrethtrae – you balance good and evil. The Prince as a picture of JESUS gives Sir Rowan a second chance -- like he gives all of you -- after Rowan leaves because of fame. While Lucius being a picture of Satan uses people to steer Rowan away from the Prince.

Sir Rowan and the Camerian Conquest are for youths to enjoy a knight’s tale while understanding the ways of the devil and who he really is. Sir Rowan has twenty – three chapters and discussion questions.

Great Strides: Josh and Emma

Elisabeth Philbrick, Mother of Josh and Emma: These are our precious children, Joshua and Emma who fight cystic fibrosis (CF) every day! Please visit our website to donate and help find a cure for our sweet babies...

Cystic fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide). A defective gene and its protein product cause the body to produce unusually thick, sticky mucus that:
  1. Clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening lung infections; and
  2. Obstructs the pancreas and stops natural enzymes from helping the body break down and absorb food.
Symptoms of Cystic Fibrosis
  1. People with CF can have a variety of symptoms; these symptoms vary on different people:
  2. Very salty-tasting skin;
  3. Persistent coughing, at times with phlegm;
  4. Frequent lung infections;
  5. Wheezing or shortness of breath;
  6. Poor growth/weight gain in spite of a good appetite; and
  7. Frequent greasy, bulky stools or difficulty in bowel movements.
  1. About 1,000 new cases of cystic fibrosis are diagnosed each year.
  2. More than 70% of patients are diagnosed by age two.
  3. More than 45% of the CF patient population is age 18 or older.
  4. The predicted median age of survival for a person with CF is in the mid-30s.
Please donate, walk, and pray about all children and adults with Cystic Fibrosis.
