Some tickets are good for going to watch a movie, others are good for riding the ferris wheel. When we were little, we earned tickets by practicing our instruments, and paid 10 tickets for an ice cream treat.   But the ticket we earned today isn’t good for anything! 

  Today only Cassia, Daddy, Mommy and I went to church because everyone else was coughing and not feeling well enough to go, so we went in our mini-van.  I was reading while we were driving back from church, and all the sudden I noticed that we are pulling over on the side of the road.

I thought, "Why are we pulling over?"  The thought crossed my mind that a policeman may have stopped us, but I couldn’t think why–it certainly is not Daddy’s habit to speed!

  Of course, I quickly found out that a policeman (actually there were two of them : ) had stopped us!  He came up and asked Daddy if he knew that the license plates were expired.  No, we didn’t know that, and even worse, they had been expired for at least six months without us knowing about it!

 The policemen went back to their car, and when they came back, and gave us our lovely ticket.  It isn’t  good for going to watch "Fireproof", or the ferris wheel, or even ice cream!!!

    He also told us that since we had a carload, he would be nice and wouldn’t have our van impounded.  Cassia and I said to each other later, "What?!  A carload?  This isn’t even half of us!!!"  Maybe he meant that he couldn’t fit us all in his car : D 

  In a way, I suppose the ticket has it’s worth–to help us pay more attention next time, but in my opinion, the tickets for ice cream are about the best worth earning!

    I am like you as far as schedules go! I love making them, but don't always keep them : D

    I'm glad I found your blog! Your template looks very familiar! (It is the one we used, too : D)

    It looks as though your family and ours like doing some of the same things : )


    Hi Jessica,

    Thank you very much for your comment.

    Yes, it looks like we have a few things in common then. πŸ™‚ I don't even know why it is that I like schedules. I just do! πŸ™‚

    Yes, it does look like our families enjoy some of the same things. Would you like to get to know eachother a bit better? I would love to get to know you and your sisters! πŸ™‚

    Your sister in Christ,

    Rebekah-Grace (You can just call me Rebekah if that's too long.) πŸ™‚

    Oh no. It MUST be Andrea Bocelli when it comes to Con Te Partiro. Hands down. πŸ™‚

    I will list 5 reasons why it must be him and 5 reasons why it must not be Paul Potts (I have heard both of them sing it – Paul Potts is a good singer and I like him, but..)

    WHY andrea bocelli (on behalf of Con Te Partiro, but also on behalf all other songs):

    1. It is an Italian song, and Andrea Bocelli is a native of Italy, thus it is more authentic

    2. He is an experienced singer

    3. He voice is uncomparable to Potts' – why? because Andrea's is strong, beautiful, and embelishes the glory of the song

    4. Andrea Bocelli was in the limelight first πŸ˜‰

    5. Con Te Partiro is his signature song (for real!!)


    WHY NOT paul potts (on behalf on Con Te Partiro):

    1. He is British, not Italian

    2. He has a very lovely voice but nothing like Bocelli's

    3. He took the liberty to sing the song Andrea is best at, drawing away the attention from an unbelievable peice/singer

    4. The song is not as captivating when Potts sings it

    5. He's just not the same as Andrea Bocelli!

    Period. πŸ™‚

    I am just quite adament about Bocelli, and the song Con te Partiro.

    funny… but then again its not! πŸ˜› we had the same type of thing happen on vacation. We were driving through Texas at night and we got pulled over 5x because our license plate light wasn't working. There were a LOT of officers out that night.

    glad he let y'all off though! πŸ™‚
