I know this is a picture post but I just realized that I don't remember where I've placed my camera. The boys and I have watched the demolition crew tear down an apartment complex at the end of Josephine St that the school purchased a few months ago. Allan was very glad to see the big "huncher" (excavator) "hunch" (tear down) the building where the "wicked people live." I'm afraid he's probably right! When you see a place like that come down it does tempt you to feel a little bit safer. That is: you feel safe until you get the next notification from the Sheriff's department that a Tier Three sex offender has moved within two blocks of you. I'm reminded frequently of Psalm 127:1 "Unless the LORD guards the city, The watchman keeps awake in vain." I can do all I can to keep my children safe but ultimately God is the one who will have to take care of them.
I forgot to post this the last time: One of Philip's former student's has started a podcast with Philip's Sunday School lessons. He's also working on digitizing all of Dad Brown's sermons. Some of you may be interested in tuning in.
I administered the first test of this semester in Philosophy of Ed today. That's always more traumatic for me than it is my students.
