The Freeman Men

We took a trip to Virginia in November. We drove up the state following the Blue Ridge Parkway. I was surpised that the boys actually enjoyed the drive on the parkway, but that probably had a lot to do with us stopping frequently and letting them climb and run through the wilderness. Here's a shot of one of those stops where the boys found some boulders that they had to sit on. Lorrie snapped a few shots while we were exploring. You can view some more photos if you click on "The Virginia Trip" under links.

Gone Fishin!

Timothy, Daniel and I have found a new past time... You guessed it, we've been fishing. A couple of months ago, we bought a canoe to spend some time on the water and we've taken up fishing in it as well...

Timothy wants to go just about every evening, if we would let him, but Daniel's patience is not yet fully developed. If we don't catch a boat load in the first few minutes, he's ready to ride his bike or something else.

It gets so hot here that we dont' spend to much time out there, but we've grown to enjoy the late evenings and early mornings. So, if you call and don't get an answer, we're gone fishing!

The Boys and the Bunny Hutch

I was in Michael's over the weekend and they had all their spring/Easter items 90% off... so I got this Wilton gingerbread kit for $1.00. Daniel didn't waste any time decorating it!

Another view...

Easter 2006

This will be a good Easter to remember. Daniel was baptized at New Heights Baptist Church. Daniel prayed to receive Christ when he was 5 but we weren't sure he understood the significance of what he did. When the pastor mentioned that we would have a baptismal service on Easter, Daniel asked if he could be baptized. We let him talk to the Pastor who said that Daniel knew what he was asking for and agreed to baptize him.

A Visit from the Family

It sure was good to have Juanita, Nevadia and Jacob join us for the weekend. We had a good time visiting and catching up on the latest family news. It made me realize how much I miss seeing my family. We again talked about getting together for a family renunion. Oh, how I wish we would. Posted by Picasa

Soccer Time

Daniel had his first practice today and he was so excited. As you can tell by the picture, he also got his uniform (or costume as he calls it).

The Boys!

Here's a current picture of the boys... I took these pictures thinking I would try to create an elaborate Valentine's card for Lorrie from the boys. However, I never got it completed. So, we just printed off a small one from the computer. The shots above were taken for the project that never got completed..

Oh well, I couldn't get Timothy to smile much anyway...

Mr. Fashion!

Yes, just when I thought it was impossible to instill some sort of fashion into my two sons, Daniel steps forward and proves me wrong. Here he is, adorned with the latest styles....

As I sat at the computer trying to do some serious work, my youngest comes to me dressed as you see him about to go outside to play. But wait.... you may wonder what type of play would require such an attire. It seems that not only does Daniel have a touch of style, but he has a mind for safety. He instructed me that him and Timothy were shooting the "soft" air gun out back and that he was wearing this lovely attire to provide protection when shooting the gun.

Well... if you aren't familiar with a soft-air gun, it's a low powered instrument that shoots a plastic pellet. The gun is certainly not lethal and while the pellet does come out with some velocity, Daniel's coverings were probably a little "over kill" for target practice with plastic pellets. But, none the less, I was proud that he took such a cautious position. That was of course, until I found out the reason Daniel had dressed so cautiously.

It seems that Daniel wasn't shooting at targets..... Daniel was the target. Yes.... his big brother had talked him into standing in for a little practice!

p.s... The soft-air gun has been put in a safe place out of the reach of the boys!
