Let's Go Beaver Trapping

But first, yesterday was Hosanna's 19th birthday!  Thank you, Hosanna, for being such a faithful daughter who loves the Lord!  We love you!! Right now she's practicing some songs for VBS this summer.  Specifically, the 12 days of Christmas, made over into the seven days of creation. 

Probably Hosanna's very favorite pastime is memorizing scripture.  It's a good thing to memorize when your young as it seems like I can hardly remember anything from one day to the next.  But the verses I learned as a girl I haven't forgotten.  We have a Bible memory program going on in church right now and every day I learn my verses for the week and every day I have to relearn them!  Thank you, Hosanna, for being so faithful to God's Word. 

Isaac has been having his sisters and Silas take turns helping him beaver trap this spring.  They enjoy the great exercise as they travel miles over some pretty boggy country.

Silas took this neat picture of some geese taking off.  Pretty cool picture.

Have a great day!  Take some time to memorize a verse, okay! We never know when we may be without a Bible that is so readily available today.


  1. Happy Birthday Hosanna!!! Hope you had a great day!

  5. Thank you everyone! I had a great birthday.


  6. What a lovely post. I had an interesting encounter with a beaver recently, a very large beaver. I saw him crossing a field on my way to work. I pulled into a fencerow/drive and he came right over and marched determinedly toward my van as I watched him. I finally pulled back onto the road and left him to cross. I wish I had had a camera along!

  7. Happy belated birthday Hosanna!! We pray that you had a great day! It looks like Priscilla really enjoys beaver trapping with Isaac. Great picture Silas!

  8. Belated birthday greetings to you, Hosanna! Our son Jonathan turned 21 on the 26th. Lots of things to celebrate! Jonathan and our youngest son, David are trapping buddies, too, only they are working on muskrats.

    I thought I would let you know that my Dad wrote a song that teaches the 7 days of Creation as well as one for the 10 Commandments & another for the 12 Disciples & books of the Bible (Old & New Testament) that we have used for our VBS since I was a child. In case you might want to use them :) Most of them we just have words & chords for, but the books of the Bible we use the tunes of At the Cross & Bring them in for. Hope all is well there :) Andrea Howell


We'd love to hear what you have to say!
