My name is and I love. . .

Today at Y camp Thomas and Marie played a game where they had to shout their name and something they love.  Thomas decided to be "funny" and make up a name.  He said (or, rather, to demonstrate, SHOUTED to me), "my name is Billy Bob Joe and I love GOD!"  I said, "that was a good one, Thomas".  I turned to Marie and asked what she said.  In a much quieter voice she said, "My name is Marie and I love my dad."  I thought that was the BEST thing too.

It is well-worth the trip and cost. This trip was almost three weeks ago and there is so much that I learned there that is still rolling around in my brain.I went with my dad, my older two children, and my oldest niece. My niece actually took a day off school to attend -- again, well-worth it. After experiencing the museum, I would take my kids out for a day -- they will learn more there in a day than a week in school, for sure.
This awesome artwork was everywhere. I took lots of pictures :)
The biggest point of education that the directors of the museum want you to take away is creationism. The Bible is literal and true. When Genesis says the world and all it's inhabitants were created in six days, that's what the Bible means. Six literal days. And dinosaurs shared the earth with …
