Why the name "bLog in Your Own Eye"?

Matthew 7:3 - 5 "Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye."

We should all endeavor to think rightly about ourselves and graciously about one another. We all have specks and logs in our eyes.

Pigs, music and friends

I know I haven't posted in a few days, but you know, sometimes you've got better things to do. Anywho, here I am now, ready to tell you about Friday of our vacation.

The group we were with, Veritas Press Scholars Academy, had a talent show Friday morning. It being a home school talent show, most of the talent there was piano. Not that piano is bad, it's just common amongst home schools. There were also a few vocal performers, a guitarist (who was very good), a magic show and I think that was all (other than piano).

After that, (because my Mom is a teacher for them), my family went to the teacher luncheon in the park. It was lots of fun, we played with the other little kids because the teachers didn't bring their older kids. But it was still lots of fun. We walked around in the park a lot and saw the ducks. :) After this, we took two of a teachers kids back to the hotel with us so they and my sister could swim in the pool. That is pretty much how we spent the afternoon until the barn dance.

The barn dance was awesome. We did one last year as well, but this year was more fun for me since I had more friends there. :) When we first got there, we just walked around the farm, and I met this wonderful pig.

Isn't it just adorable? OK, well I thought it was, so you can keep your thoughts to yourself (such as, 'wow, she's crazy'). And I got to pet him (or it, you couldn't tell, his flab was in the way). ;) There were a lot of other animals to pet there as well. They had a little bush maze, a slide, and a mining place where you could pan for rocks. Inside the barn (where we had the dance) it was very tight. There were more people than last year (same barn) but the dance floor was smaller. So when I was dancing with my friend, he and I kept bumping into the little kids because there were so many! And with that dance, my friend and I were just about to be the head couple then the music stopped. It was rather sad, but we had fun. The dancing we did is called 'contra dancing', and it pretty much is country dancing (similar to square dancing, but more fun). There actually is a group near where I live that meets every other Friday night and dances for hours. I've done it a few times, but I've been too busy lately. So I only danced a few times at the barn dance, but it was fun. :)

That was pretty much it for Friday, but boy, it was a fun day. I'm starting to forget the little details now, being it a week ago this all happened, but I'll try to remember as much as I can. :)

Next time I write: Saturday was the student debate, field day and a fun outdoor dinner. PLUS, an awesome trip to a candy factory.

So, till then-

HA! that "cute" piggy is, well... EVIL! sorry to burst your bubble and all, but HE BIT ME IN THE LEG! Just because I was giving him a friendly pat. Okay, so he doesn't appear to have any teeth, so how could that have hurt? Are you kidding! My muscles were sore for three days afterward!

Bad pig. Biting my Grayce is unacceptable. You know what I would call a pig who bit my child? Bacon, ham, pork rinds, fatback, sausage and pork chop would be a start.
