Baby Rabbits and Cute Kids

I'm pretty sure
The title says it all!

With no further adeui!

Baby rabbits...
Cute kids!









I'm not sure
How I managed to miss
A few of the kids

Guess I will just have
To spend more times
With the cute kids ;)
And our three baby rabbits!

My life is HARD

Exams This Week, Lord Help Me!

So once again
It is THAT time...
The time
That stresses every teacher out

(I know I'm not alone in this!)


To be precise...
Mid-Term Exams...

While going through
Some cirriculum
From here...
I discovered something
That pretty much 
The Ugandan take
On schooling here...

If you note
Under the badge
It says
"School is God"

I found it
In the curriculum

A lot of people here
Think school is
The beginning and end 
Of all...

Please be praying
For the children

The school system here
Puts HUGE priority
On passing exams

So the way they go about that
Is by having the kids just
The things the teachers know
Will be on the test...

Contrary to that
We have been teaching the kids
The actual facts
And making sure they understand
Each thing they are taught...

As a result
Sometimes our kids get discouraged
If they can't answer
Every one of the questions
Even though some of them
Are far to advanced
For a 6 or 7 year old...

Please be praying
That the McCourtney children
Would be a light
As they go for testing

That they wouldn't become discouraged
But would know that
Everything that they do
Is "unto the Lord"


That their teacher
Would have peace
That only comes from the Lord!


Blessings all!

Birthday Birthday Birthday!!!

Happy Happy Birthday
To Miss Elianah

She is making!
This many

In the absence
Of a cake
We made due
With candles...

And in the absence
Of an oven
We had

Pumpkin pie...
Minus the baking
And the crust...

All's well
That ends well

I love birthdays :)

Beavers or Ducks...

Trust me
I know this is
A touchy subject...

But it cracked me up
Too much
Not to post!

Enoch was a bit
Under the weather

By mid-morning
He was back to normal

I asked him
To put on a coat
And he got
The OSU sweatshirt
That I am sure
Some avid fan
Sent us...

I asked him
To continue resting
On the bed

As I continued
To read my bible
All of a sudden

I heard
Get this...

Duck noises
Coming from the bed

I have no idea why
But it destroyed me
That here he was
Wearing Beaver colors
And quacking

True contradiction!

Best of both worlds maybe?
