Tracing Transformers

Trey loves the old 1980s Transformers show and often makes Lego creations that transform like the characters. On a recent visit to McKay Used Book Store in Chattanooga, Heidi picked up a book that teaches kids how to draw the actual characters from the old show. Trey loves that when he uses tracing paper on the images his resulting drawing looks exactly like the REAL deal.

Church Block Party

Our church here in Cordele held a “block party” to reach out to the neighborhood around the church. We helped set things up in the local park and were amazed at the turnout. Nearly 300 folks came to the event. Kids played in bouncey houses, ate cotton candy & popcorn, and did various activities. Heidi and I spent the afternoon getting to know neighbors we had never met before and inviting them to join us at church. Trey even ran into several kids from his class at school. It was a great day of sharing Christ’s love with our community.

Children’s Choir

Trey has been enjoying Children’s Choir at church this year. I think it is mainly due to the fact that there are several other boys in the class. Our church in Macon had mostly girls in the choir and he was never that interested in participating.


What’s in a Hard Drive?

Trey asked me what was inside a hard drive. So we decided to find out.

Little Rascals

Trey watches Little Rascals for the first time.

On a recent trip we showed Trey an old episode of Little Rascals. I was surprised at how much “translating” I had to do. Filmed so long ago, the kids’ accents and vocabulary were quite different from our own. The low quality of audio recording technology of that ears also made things difficult to understand. He certainly understood all the physical comedy though!

Halloween 2013

Halloween started off with me picking Trey up in my morph suit at school. The other kids went bonkers when they saw me. It really made Trey’s day (and theirs).

We attended our church’s fall festival and Trey dressed up as Boba Fett from Star Wars. After playing games at church we went trick-or-treating in around our neighborhood. It was actually the first time we’ve ever done that and Trey really liked it. There were a couple houses that went overboard with zombies and scary stuff but they were polite about not terrorizing the young kids.

And here’s a short clip of Trey making a very absurd comment. Even he can’t keep a straight face.
