A Couple Clips

I was just uploading some video clips from the camera, and thought I would share a couple.

This first one is from Derek's birthday. It makes me laugh because he gets all excited about the present, but has no idea what it is. 
(And because Alex sneezes and then wipes her nose with her arm.
We are quite the sanitary family.)

This (sideways) clip is the culmination of 6 weeks of memory work from Alex's homeschooling. She learned Psalms chapter one. I am impressed with the amount that they can remember at this age!

In case you have trouble making out the words, you can see it written here.

Today there was an almost-constant hum of jet engines flying overhead as the base evacuated all of it's F-15Es to a safer location. It's kind of a bummer to lose Josh for one of our few remaining weekends, but it goes along with the territory. Hopefully this storm wont cause too much damage to the east coast; I think we're pretty safe here as we are a decent distance from the coast.

The next thing you know, we'll be having an earthquake!

Oh wait.
That already happened ;)

This image has been circulating around social media-- it made me chuckle.

You know, I am a bad blog friend. I forgot you were in NC. We were in the southwest though, so...pretty far away I'm guessing. :) Next time!
