I have the amazing privilege of having my two oldest grandsons with me for the week. They are home schooled and very talented and smart, if I must say so myself.
Both of them love music and brought their musical instruments along to keep their practice up and to show off for “G”.
I have the whole week set aside and planned out for fun things to do. I have kept the time very flexible so that I can change my plans at any time to meet their desires. That turned out to be a good decision. Yesterday was filled with a movie (planned) and a long, sweet trip to a large music store (unplanned). It allowed them the opportunity to drop lots of Christmas Wish hints!
Back to the HELP part!!
As I said, these boys are smart. They have traveled all over the world and have seen many things that I have never seen.
The older one is a GIANT teddy bear and when he walks up and down my stairs I am thrown back many years and imagine that it is his Dad and that I still have him living in my home. It is amazing how much alike they are. They walk, talk and respond to those around them in much the same manner. I love watching it.
The younger one is the “investigator”. He is always creating or building (or blowing up) something and is ALWAYS thinking, doing, watching, and wondering!
One onf my favorite parts of being with them is driving in the car somewhere. They are captured together and I LOVE to hear them talk!!!
That is the part I need help with.
These are a few of my little guys questions from yesterday:
What is a butterball? (this question followed my comment about our newest grand baby girl being a “beautiful butterball”)
What is “Hark”? (this question followed the Christmas music playing in the car…”Hark the Herald…”)
How did last names get started? (that one followed a discussion of presidential candidate Mike HUCKABEE)
The first one, we came up with a few ideas about how that saying got started.
The second one was fairly easy. (Praise the Lord!)
But the last one really needs some research on my part, unless one of you could just slip me the answer.
It would really help me to impress my smart G-boys!
I read a story recently about a “message in a bottle” discovery. In 1999, a fisherman in New Zealand caught the surprise of a lifetime when he fished out an old glass, ginger beer bottle from the English Channel. Sealed inside was found a brief love note from a British…

Do you have a BIG HAIRY AUDACIOUS GOAL brewing in your head? Do you sometimes stay awake at night planning and organizing–YET AGAIN–a dream, a vision, a mission that stirs in your heart without rest? Is there something AMAZING that you long to be? see? accomplish? In the childhood story…
I have just returned from 4 days of filling up on God, so much in fact, that I am sweetly drained. The video clip that I have posted is just but a tiny testement to all that God did over the weekend from “Fully Loaded” to “Living Proof Live”. This…
