Common Sense Sanitation Tips

1. Always wash your hands after using the bathroom. 2. Always wash your hands before eating, if possible. 3. Always wash your hands before cooking. 4. Cover your mouth or turn away when you sneeze or cough. 5. Always, always, wash your hands after being outside and handling the dead snake you found! And remember these are not the only things you should wash your hands after doing. How to Wash Your Hands 1. Put your hands under hot water to get them wet. 2. Take them out from under the water and put soap on your hands. 3. Scrub the soap all over your hands, out from under the water, for at least thirty seconds (I must admit, I don’t usually wash my hands that long myself, but that is about how long you’re suppose to do it). Make sure that plenty of suds are covering your hands. 4. Put them back under the water and scrub them under the water as you rinse off all the soap. 5. Dry your hands on a clean towel. If you follow these instructions then you will be spreading a lot less germs


I don't know about you, but we like to watch deer when they come wondering on to our land. Well we did like to watch deer, and we still do, but recently we have been seeing them a lot more often. I was thinking that maybe they were coming to our land, because they finally figured out that we are safe and won't shoot them. Today we saw 16 deer. It seemed like they were everywhere. I think it is really neat to see so many at one time. I also like to see them all bounding away with their white tails sticking straight up. "As the deer pants for the water brooks, So pants my soul for You, O God." Psalm 42:1


How many of you enjoy work? I must say for myself that work isn’t always my favorite thing. Some times it’s very dirty work or sometimes it’s a job I just don’t like. Or sometimes I’m just not in the mood for it. But then again sometimes (only by God's grace) it is the most enjoyable thing in the world. Well, I think it’s really the way that we look at it. If you turn it into some kind of game then it usually ends up quite enjoyable. Like for example my sisters and I, when we were younger, (and even sometimes now) would do our chores like we were hotel workers and were cleaning the rooms, or sometimes we were restaurant workers cleaning up the kitchen, or sometimes we were slaves or servants. Or some times we would pretend that we were people that would clean the house really good for other people, and I’m sure that there are a number of other random things that we did to make it fun. (My sisters and I have great imagination skills.) Another thing that I do is sing or whistle while

Snow Fun

Hi! We have been having a fun time sledding in the snow. It is the first good snow that we've had in about six years (and what I mean by good is that we were actually able to have good sledding, on our road, which is about 1/2 mile long). So for about two days we sledded pretty much nonstop, but today (the third day) we were only able to sled good in the morning, because it began to melt and get slushy. God is such an amazing creator. Here is a video of an amazing jump (or bump) that we made. The first person is me and the other is our neighbor. She was the one that went over so smoothly and not me. lol
