Friday night, Emily, Matt, Andrew and I attended Kids Stuff Live at our church. This is a family activity offered to provide another opportunity to hear about the Big Idea they are discussing in the kids small groups on Sunday at church. This month the kids are learning about honesty. We had a great time worshipping with other families, then watched a program in which they drove home the idea that God doesn't measure our lies with a ruler like approach. There is no such thing a small or big lie in the eyes of God.
"God detests lying lips, but He delights in men who are truthful."
Saturday morning, Brett's boss Dean came by and picked up Brett, Jake, Nick, and Matt for the Clemson football game. We put Luke in his Georgia onesie just because we now live in a college town who loves their DAWGS!

They had a great afternoon and are looking forward to the Clemson/Virginia Tech game in October.
While the boys were away....The girls, Andrew, and Luke went on a picnic lunch at the park.
Luke spent his time in the baby bjorn and thankfully was asleep
The kids love this park. It is in the woods and had a really fast slide and lots of wooden bridges.
Sunday was super busy. After church, Emily and I went straight to Sam's Club, made a quick stop home with the loot and headed out to purchase boots for Emily and finish our grocery shopping at
Wal-Mart. I was still unpacking groceries when our babysitter arrived so Brett and I could attend our small group. We had a fun night of fellowship with our group putting together 100 Christmas boxes for Samaritans Purse.
"This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all."
