That's Right Zoe

One of my collegues announced yesterday that she was pregnant. I went into the kinder room and told Zoe and Taya. I then asked if I should have a baby.

"Yes Sam!" they chorused.

"You should have 25 children Sam," Zoe said.

"That's a few more than I think even I could handle Zoe." I told her.

"Maybe just two," Taya told Zoe.

"No!" Zoe said emphatically. "God will decide!"

"That's right Zoe," I said. "God WILL decide."

"And more than two. God will decide."

Not At Church

On Friday or Sunday, as I'm at Portarlington with my family.

So far, my brother (John-Wayne) has threatened to put all the Christians in a gym and burn them. My mother suggested the MCG. Dad added that he could then get the lions to eat them.

He didn't get it.

Kids on My Health

Sasha (4) thinks my allergies are the coolest. She gets me to list everything I can't eat repeatedly. One day, she looked at me and said, "I'm allergic too!"
"What to?" I asked.
"Cold milk," she said. "And petrol."

Maddie (2) thinks that I should spend allday every day putting on "lipstick" (actually lipbalm). I keep this in a bag with my Ventolin. Every time I obligingly put on my "lipstick" she reminds me, "That's your medicine, for when you stop bleeding."

I had to go home early last week with gastro. On the way out, Bella asked where I was going. I told her I was going home to vomit. She nodded wisely and said, "You have to vomit in your own bed."

Audio Giveaway

At the moment, several of the blogs I regularly read have been mentioning the NCFIC "Sufficiency of Scripture Conference". Being out of the US means I can't even really consider going to a whole lot of these conferences, but I can (and often do) buy the audio afterward!

For those who weren't able to attend, you can purchase the audios here:

or visit their conference page...

And if you are interested in getting some audios for free then hop over to Life in A Shoe - which is hosting a giveaway for this event!

Saving Hailee

I've added a button. As many of you will know, I adore children, and adoption is an issue close to my heart. I recently learnt of this family who are aiming to adopt Hailee. Due to the changes in the policy of that country they need to get everything done as soon as they can, because at any point Hailee can be fostered out - in which case she is unlikely to survive.

Please consider donating, and please pray!
