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.

I know, I know. I've fallen way behind on my chronicling of the EOTYG, because we are going on yet another trip tomorrow! So, I will try to finish it all up in one post.

Saturday, my Mom and I got up early to go shopping in the Veritas Press warehouse. It is a treat to see so many wonderful books there stacked on shelves. I loved it. After that, we came back to the hotel for the Student Debate. The debated the topic of whether voting for one particular quality or not is a good thing. The students as usual did a great job, better than I could ever do! :) Well, maybe. I am taking Rhetoric next year... . :) Anyways, after that we(my family and I) went to a chocolate factory called Wilbur Chocolate Company. Oh boy. This company beats Hersheys any day. *in Mr.T voice, "I pity Hershey Chocolates"* This chocolate is magnificent! And I should know, I've practically been raised on chocolate (not really, but it is a loved food in our household). :P We bought so much chocolate, but it hardly lasted us the trip home. Then, we went to find lunch somewhere before the grueling field day. Just kidding, it wasn't that bad! I had to do some of the events twice though, because some adults in my group had knee injuries or something like that. I had to do the wheel-barrow race twice, and I can assure you I was feeling the pain from that for days after I was home. But I had a great time doing everything. :) After that, we went back to the hotel and went swimming, the everyone showered, the we went to the home of the family who started Veritas Press. Of course, their house wasn't big enough for people inside, so everyone was outdoors. But their yard is so big and green, it didn't really matter. :) We stayed here till after dark, and had a wonderful time.

Sunday, we got up, got dressed for church, packed our bags, loaded up the car and went to find breakfast. The church was nice, but it had no air conditioning, so the windows were open. Which means that it was rather tempting to fall asleep. After church, we went to the park for a farewell picnic, where everyone hugged, said goodbye, and repeated that about five hundred times. It was sad for it to be the last day, but it was definitely a great trip overall. After that, we visited with another family whose Dad was a teacher for a few hours, then started the 10-hour drive home.

Annddd, here we are, back in town, yet ready to go away again. Tomorrow we leave for a fun weekend with cousins in the mountains, where, Lord-willing we will be able to film a lot of that show everyone knows and loves, On the Run News. ;)

Till next time,
