Here we were learning about grafting trees. We were able to see the scar on the tree where it had been graphed.
This was the machine that planted all of the little seeds in to the flat so that the seed could germinate.
This is a photo of my oldest son looking at one of the carnivorous plants that they sold at the nursery. He was very excited to see one up close and personal after he had read about them this summer.
We had just finished up the apologia botany book so it was really neat for the kids to see so many different variety of plants growing.

Again I find myself trying to do the same things. Trying to finish one day just to wake up in the morning and try to start another one. My little guy is sleeping right now and I should be cleaning but it seems like I will never get to end. That is how life is like in a sinfully world. The work in never and we long for rest. There is only one place for me to find the rest that my soul is longing for. That is in the feast that our Lord Jesus Christ gave us. His very own body and blood shed for all sins. He will be our eternal rest and deliverance from this world of sorrow. Oh I know that my picture that I posted does not really have anything to do with my post. I just thought that it was very cute. On the brighter side of my life I am now back into my regular blue jeans. I took 19 months this time but at least I am finally in my jeans.

I heard about a sad state of affairs on our local talk radio station this morning. It turns out that Veggie Tales is now going to be on NBC on Saturday mornings. "Wow" I thought to myself, I had not heard of this. But then I found myself fuming. The so called wise people in charge of NBC have said that Phil Vischer (the man behind the tales) is not to have any reference to God during the show. WHAT? Say it again because I know I did not hear it right. Sorry, but yes, I did hear it correctly. I just think now, what in the world is happening.
I can not let my children watch the basic three channels because everything they put on the air is awful. OK sometimes the shows they may have on are OK but then you better watch out for those commercials. You never know when they might show a commercial for an rated R movie during a sporting event that everyone in the family is watching.
I would like to challenge Mr. Phil Vischer to tell NBC off. He does not need their money. He should hold true to his art and not take any of it out. If we, as competent people, begin to compromise where will it end. Everything in the world is being compromised. We must hold true to our faith.

The Lord in my light and my salvation whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life of whom shall I be afraid?
When evil men advance against me to devour my flesh,
when my enemies and my foes attack me, they will stumble and fall.
Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear;
though war break out against me, even then will I be confident.
One thing I ask of the Lord, this what I seek:
That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,
to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple.
For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter fo his tabernacle and set me high upon a rock.
Then my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me;
at his tabernacle will I sacrifice with shouts of joy; I will sing and make music to the Lord.
Hear my voice when I call, O Lord;
be merciful to me and answer me.
My heart says of you, "Seek his face!"
You face, Lord, I will seek.
Do not hide your face from me, do not turn your servant away in anger; you have been my helper. Do not reject me or forsake me, O God my Savior.
Though my father and mother forsake me, the Lord will receive me.
Teach me your way, O Lord; lead me in a straight path because of my oppressors.
Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes, for false witnesses rise up against me, breathing out violence.
I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit; as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen
