40,000 Page Views on a Content Free Blog

Things have been a little slow around here, for oh say the past year. We have lots of updates that need to be published, maybe we'll get around to writing some of them over the holidays. I'm kind of amazed that there have been 40,000 hits to this blog, which translates to about $60 of revenue from google, (our benevolent internet overlords won't pay until we hit $100). I'm sure a large chunk of it is eastern European spam robots, at least that's my guess based on where the traffic is coming from, but still pretty amazing.

Jackie at Preschool: Markers Edition

The preschool sends us pictures of Jackie in class from time to time. This one came in the other day.

She really amazed me with the markers last week. I was supervising coloring time, and with markers I guess you really need too, other wise things can get out of hand in fairly short order, and I was drawing her pictures of cartoon characters she likes, and she was doing a great job coloring between the lines. With the crayons, not so much, but she was using those markers like a champ.

Repost: Grandma’s Ice Cream

My own blogging has hit the skids again, for this I apologize. I'm going to try to link some different tidbits as I come across them to keep things interesting. I came across this today, and I thought it a beautiful sentiment about suffering with grace and dignity, when we encounter hardship. Most of our problems in life are rather small, and how we handle them speaks to our faith and character.
