My Week with My Adopted Parents

I’m spending this week with my adopted parents*. The internet isn’t always the best, so I’m glad to finally have a good signal and be able to catch up on some stuff. We’ll be going to the Creation Museum tomorrow so if any of y’all will be there on Friday or Saturday I’d be delighted to see you. 
Yesterday we had some of our friends from the Museum come over (my parents live about three hours away from the Museum) and we had a great time hanging out. They had a guest visiting from Australia so I had a lot of fun asking her what life was like there. We went to Holmes County together and got to see some cool stuff like how one of the stores makes homestyle apple butter and jellies. (Sadly, I did’t take any pictures while we were there.) 

My dad has been working on carving a bear out of a log. He’s such an amazing artist. I enjoy getting to watch him work and am always blown away by his many talents. He can paint, draw, carve, sculpture, build, and do taxidermy, plus of course play about eight instruments and sing and write songs and books and… Well, the list goes on.

Cowboy and I hung out for a bit this morning. He’s a sweet horse although he didn’t like staying still for a picture. I enjoy getting to be around him. My parents are really good with animals. Mom is currently trying to tame two cats that were abandoned. Her patience is crazy. I’m the kind of person who likes to rush through everything and think I probably would have given up on the cats after the first couple of days. 

We worked on a small writing project this morning and I’m hoping to do some brainstorming for another Creation Quest book later on today. And… Speaking of books, Cave Secrets of the Pterodactyl is on sale right now! When you buy it, you also get a audio book, so it’s actually a two-for-one deal. Just click on the title and it will take you to the Answers in Genesis website if you want to check it out. 

I hope y’all are having a great week. What are you looking forward to doing this weekend? Have you ever been to the Christmas Town at the Creation Museum? Oh yes, and today is your last day to enter this giveaway.

*I’m going to drop the “adopted” part for the rest of the post.

    Aw, you have such a nice smile. 😀 And that horse has a nice smile too. *nods* SO BASICALLY: NICE ALL AROUND. And that looks like you had such an awesome time, eep! Yay for Aussie friends. 😉 Just sayin', but it's basically the best place in the universe.
