It's Official!!!

Tyra is going to Germany in a couple weeks!!!
My dad has been trying to talk me into letting her go with him for years...but, I felt she was way too young and wouldn't enjoy herself much.

Well, he and my mom are going in a couple weeks and he was, once again, trying his persuasive speech on me and probably felt much like a child about to open his biggest present ever when I told him she was probably ready now.

Not only is my dad taking Tyra but he's taking her cousin Alyssa! They are going to have sooo much fun! They'll get to ride in the plane, surprise their Old Oma they love so much, and be able to take in (as much as a 7 year old can take in) the different culture of Germany and go to Seiffen!!! Oh, how I envy her.
Seiffen is a little village filled with Christmas lights, smells, and, most wonderfully, German Christmas ornaments and decorations. It's heart warming!!! I bet she'll love it.

***I haven't been talking to John much....(he's in Brazil :) )
So, sorry if this is how you find out that it's a for sure thing before we get to talk, John! Talk to you tonight! (hee,hee)

Bravo Ben Stein! Bravo!
(Here's a link to his movie trailer if you haven't seen it yet.)

If you want all voices (especially that of "Intelligent Design") to be comfortably allowed and accepted in the science room, you can visit a part of Ben Stein's site and "sign" the "I support academic freedom" petition. Signing this petition will help keep the fact that God had a hand in all creation as an option to be considered and discussed within the classroom.
