"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails.
I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp.
I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children.
I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden.
I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder.
I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."

Bob (Lance) the builder

Lance is very good at building things. He has put up a patio cover at a friends house, build cabinets in a friends garage that go along the ceiling, made work benches for our garage, and more things too. This is his new creation. We all know he is into fishing latley and has started a salt water fish tank in our house. He built this stand with no pattern or directions just from his own brain. I think it turned out really good. He even stained it to match our entertainment center. Don't ask me how we have room for this huge aquarium but it's actually really cool to sit and watch.
We have 4 of these weird looking "starfish". they almost look like octapus. They are cool to waych and the on eon the left is pretty big.

this is the little purple starfish that crawls all over the place. I've never really seen one in action and he is a mover. He climbs up the glass and then when he fall and lands upside down his legs curl and flips himself over. Really cool to watch.
