"Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

Because of every one's various locations, we always try to meet somewhere halfway for everyone. Though everyone except Uncle Randy seem to end up traveling the farthest... but that's another story. We like going to places with lakes because my Uncle Randy has wave-runners.

Well, now you know what Caro is really like; pushing unsuspecting cousins into the water.
Like I said in the beginning, this book has made a great impact on me and this is the sort of thing that happens after I read a book like this: I want to buy a copy for all my friends and the mailman!

-"Because I haven't seen her all day."

“Contracting and overcoming [childhood] diseases is part of a developmental process that actually helps develop a healthy, robust, adult immune system able to meet the challenges that inevitable encounters with viruses and bacteria will present later on.”
Vaccines stimulate and highly activate the microglia, the first and main form of active immune defense in the Central Nervous System, in the brain. After activation, these sleeping immune cells can move around the brain like amoeba, secreting very toxic amounts of inflammatory chemicals and two forms of excitotoxins. This puts the brain into a chronically inflamed state and the brain can remain overactive for up to two years after vaccination. A great deal of the human brain is formed during the first two years after birth and continues until between ages 25-27. Vaccines disrupt this critical process and can result in a malformed brain. Surprisingly, many pediatricians don’t know very much about a child’s brain and therefore, promote vaccines naively. Veterinarians found out years ago that in many cases they were over-immunizing our pets, a syndrome they call Vaccinosis. It overwhelmed the immune system of the animals, causing a multitude of physical and neurological disorders. Rather like what we’re seeing today, except we’re seeing it in our children. As a result, we discovered that we can over-immunize our pets but what about our children? Is it so absurd to think that we are over-immunizing our children today?
“So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”

Apodaca and Webb Productions put on a mini puppet show,
complete with props and sound effects!
These headscarves came in great handy during the week! Their hair was spared much peanut butter and unidentifiable stickiness :)

So, that was Day One.
Similar to Elena's experience with the Apodaca family, I have found that a schedule is one of the most helpful things. Even if you don't get everything done, you can always refer back to it when you're not sure what to do next. It keeps you focused on what needs to be accomplished for the day and it's very satisfying to look at your list and see that everything is done.

Let me dwell in your tent forever!
Prolong the life of the king; may his years endure to all generations!
So will I ever sing praises to your name, as I perform my vows day after day.
