Chloe is our daredevil. She does everything that Connor was afraid to do at two... She is practicing to be a crash test dummy, I think. Here's some cute photos of my cutie racing the Big Wheel, wearing Connor's Dodger batting helmet backwards...

I always take my camera when Connor and I go to baseball games. For one, Annette bought me a really great Nikon for my birthday, and you never know who you'll see in Vegas. I saw UNLV's Head basketball coach Lon Kruger on the field, and when I asked him for a photo with Connor, he invited us down on the field. We love UNLV Basketball, and Coach Kruger. It's a great photo...

Annette and I went to a John McCain rally led by Mitt Romney last Wednesday, mainly because I was e-mailed and told John McCain would be there. I am a McCain fan- I supported him when I lived in Arizona; we went to the same church for a couple of years (I was on staff at North Phoenix Baptist Church producing TV when he first started attending there); and I really support his leadership in international affairs. In my local caucus, I was the only delegate to the county convention who supported McCain (20 delegates for Romney). Anyhoo- we went, and McCain was not there (big disappointment), but we heard from Mitt Romney, and afterwards, I reverted to my journalism days, and took my camera to get some photos. I love figuring out how to get around- it's so easy for me to get the angle, snake around, and get in position for good photos. I still think I'm part of the press. Anyway, here's some Mitt Romney photos.
PS- I think the choice of Sarah Palin is really great- she has so much upside, and I think McCain- Palin will take the day in November...

My sweet Chloe made me laugh out loud this week. Her mom had been out of town for a few days, and Chloe was really missing her. Little things were real big to her, and she was very emotional. She had asked me for milk three times that day, and I had given it to her. After speaking with Annette by telephone, I found out Chloe had had her limit. So once again, in early evening, Chloe climbed up in my lap and asked for milk. Except she whined for it. "I... want... my... milk!", she would yell, and then cry. Then again. and again. Finally, after the fifth time, I wanted to let her hear what she sounded like. Doing my best impression of her whine, I let out, "I want my milk." She looked at me, pausing for just an instant, and in a most pathetic little whimper, cried, "Me Too!"

Connor starts Kindergarten at Lake Mead Christian Academy on Monday, and he is so excited. He is required by the school to have a King James Bible, so we went and got him his own last week. Connor is so thrilled to have his own Bible- he wants to read it, study it, and show it off all the time. It is one of the most precious things I have ever been a part of as a dad. He loves the things of God, and it is my prayer that God will reveal himself to Connor in His time.

My baby girl Chloe loves Jojo's Circus. Here she is beautiful and ready to go to sleep with her doll clown friend Jojo.

I thank God for special people who teach and love my children. I have very fond memories of Bible Study teachers and ministers in my life as I grew up, and we are blessed to have the same kinds of people in our church in Henderson. Here's Connor with Miss Sonja, and Sonja's daughter Ashley. He loves them so much, prays for them, and can't wait to see them each week. Last Sunday the preschoolers did a recitation in church- Connor delivered the fourth and seventh commandments. and the whole class recited the books of the old testament. We love miss Sonja and Miss Ashley!

I can't tell you how much I love this photo of my baby Chloe!
