We enjoyed lunch with my uncle Dale today and we had the Santa Fe chicken sandwich. It is true what they say, everything is bigger in Texas!

We took a trip to the PA Farm Show this week. This show is billed as the "largest indoor agricultural exposition in the country". Ella seemed to really enjoy the people and the animals. I really enjoyed the food! It was the first time for both Jana and Ella to attend. I think it was a good time for all of us. Below, Ella tries to make friends with one of the hundreds of cows exhibited at the complex.

I would like to start a new weekly series on "A Bunch of Stuff" that will try to encourage parents as they raise their kids. Actually, it might just me looking for some help as well. And, almost ALL the content will be from others who have more experience then me. But, from my 25 years of experience as a youth pastor, I have come to realize that the parents have all the responsibility of raising their kids - not the youth pastor, the church or anyone else. So, I want to encourage parents to do the parenting.
Here is my first link. Please feel free to comment about your thoughts below.
Doug Fields writes about "10 Things Kids Learn From Their Parents' Marriage" at Homeward.com. He says that while he is not always speaking about his marriage, his kids can always learn from what they see. Just as an older gentleman with three boys told me a long time ago. "I always try to follow the speed limit and the posted signs because I have 6 eyes in the back seat watching everything I do." Same is true about your marriage. Check out Doug's list and evaluate how you are doing in your marriage. And, maybe you could add to the list.
