Johann leaving

42 days has flown by… Johann made our house a happier, brighter place.  I have to admit we are all pretty sad to let him go. Part of me wanted to hide his passport so he would have to stay forever.  I hope he knows how much we love him, and what a joy he was to have in our home.  Next summer his younger brother will come to spend the summer with us, I am sure we will love him too.  But a little part of my heart now lives in France, cant wait to we see him again!

Johann family photoOur final weekend with Johann he went on an overnight camp out with the scouts from our church.  They slept in tents, ate food over the fire, acted like boys and played on the water.  The kids and I all watched the clock and eagerly awaited his return.  Funny how in just 6 weeks he has become a family member.  One of my favorite movies is The Blind Side, a story of a family that took in a teen boy and soon loved him like their own son.    That is totally how we feel, our house if going to feel pretty empty without him and his adorable personality.

Free Gun Lock

2ndamendI am not a huge hunter, or gun person. I own them and I believe in the right to bear arms. But what I don’t believe in is when parents own guns but do not take proper steps to protect them self and their children. I believe that every gun should have a lock. All too often we hear stories of small children shooting their siblings or friends because the was a gun in the house. It is not the fact that there was a gun in the house, it is because there is a lack of respect. The first thing a Marine learns is that it is not a gun it is a weapon and rifle. They learn to love it and respect its power. They learn about it inside and out and I am sure a Drill Sergeant has made many a Marines even sleep with it. But you don’t see them mishandling their weapon or hearing of an accidental shooting because they were playing with it.

If a family wants a gun in the home they need to learn respect. A part of that respect is proper care and handling. Every one knows that a 4 year old can not properly hold or use a gun. And knowing what children of any age can cause and get in to trouble then proper steps need to be take to insure their safety. This is why I feel every gun should have a proper lock. A good lock not only insures the gun will not fire, but all insures that there is no bullet in the chamber.

johann football

Johann wanted to watch an american football game. So  Granny and Papa him to the BSU scrimmage on the blue field.  Matt had to work that night, and I was not up to taking 5 kids plus a new baby to a football game.  I know the blue field is not the standard football field, but that is how we do it here in Boise Idaho…lol.
