I forgot to post a photo yesterday, so I guess my goal of getting one every day is already messed up!  Oh well, back on track today.

Healthier Pizza

Today for dinner I had a personal sized Pizza, made healthier because its on whole wheat pita, and has less fat and calories, and probably less sodium than most pizza.  The exact ingredients can be found HERE.

Here is our new heat source, it is supposed to be more efficient than our old baseboard heaters, (which are all situated under VERY LARGE windows.)

Just Had to Have It

I was in Walmart today, when this little calendar called to me, saying, "Here I am, come and get me!"  Its a whole calendar focusing on my favorite driver.

See You Later Mathew!

Mathew, my Nephew, is going back to Hawaii tomorrow morning, and we won't see him until his next leave, probably sometime in July.  Goodbye Mathew, and thanks for serving our country!

More Cool Sky Pictures

Okay, last night God gave us a wonderful display of majesty at sunset, first thing this morning there was an encore performance.  I know this is supposed to be one photo a day, but how can I pick the best one?

Awesome Sky

I took a lot of photos today while I was a passenger in a car.  The sky was too beautiful not to photograph, but as you can see, being in motion while taking the photos caused some of them to be out of focus.  Enjoy these photos.

Too Good for Just One Photo

I am a Sunday School teacher, and for about two years my class has been crammed into this:

That is the Church kitchen, and my class has been crammed into it for two years, and before that we had an even smaller room.  The kitchen was worse though because people would walk through to get things in the middle of the teaching, and the kids would try to play with the stove or get food from the fridge.  So when I show this next set of photos, you should understand why I consider them to be truly beautiful.

Our portable, purchased about two years ago, is FINALLY ready for use!  Here is the outside:

And here is the inside, showing first the big room for Children's Worship:

Next, the two smaller classrooms off of the big room:

Right now my class is the only class using the portable once children's worship is finished, so we are enjoying the use of the big room, its great to finally have space to move around.

Bonus Three-Picture Day!

We went over to my mother-in-laws house today, largely to see my nephew Mathew who is in the Navy, and is home on leave from Hawaii.  The only problem was that for the first hour or so that we were there, this is all we saw of him:

Now, after I snapped that picture, and told him why, he took the hint.  So I was also able to snap these photos:
This first one is him with my oldest daughter Eliana.

This next one is him playing with my two youngest kids.

How Bob Spent the First Day of the Year

This is the result of over-training one muscle group, Bob decided to do 2000 crunches first thing in the morning a couple of days ago.  As a result, he couldn't move most of the day today.
