Noah was a man of old, but by God Noah was told "I do believe that man has gone mad, because he is being ever so bad. He's disobeyed every law I gave him and I'm tired of yielding to his every whim. I'm going to destroy the earth with a flood, and wipe away every trace of bad blood."
"So build a boat, this month of May, so that you and your family will be okay." So Noah began to work as he took off his coat, to build an ark, a great, big boat! And God gave Noah every direction, so that he was sure of complete protection. 120 years he worked, with his sons, they never shirked.
He kept talking of a flood of water, 'till all thought him crazy as the old, mad potter! They thought it was so funny, and wondered where he got his money. But then the animals came, from birds to a beast with a mane. In fact, a pair of every beast, and food so they could have a feast.
The people said, "He realized he'd never get it to float, so he's putting animals into this great, big boat. He decided to turn it into a zoo, especially when he heard a moo. Then they went into the boat, with the animals more and more. Then Noah prayed to God, and God closed the door.
It rained and rained for forty days, 'till Noah thought that God was crazed. But then it stopped, what a blessed sound. And Noah was happy and dancing around. Then they looked out, what a sight to see, for land was turned into a great, big sea. Noah sent a dove out and back it flew, And with it came an oilve branch too.
Then they went out on land that was low, and there they saw the very first rainbow.
We went to Playa Las Gatas. We took a taxi to Zhieuatanejo, then we took a boat across the bay. On the other side there were tiny waves. When you went out to where the waves were splashing, you would find that the bottom slopes for about a foot, then the water is clear and calm with a sandy bottom and you can swim in it as if it was a swimming pool. It was also warm. If you went out a little further you could snorkle and see fish and coral. You could actually go out to the coral reef, but we didn't want to because the water was so shallow there and we wanted to be able to look down on the fishes, not say hello and shake their fin.
I learned how to carve sand castles. Anisha and I made the prettiest fairy castle for the sand fairies to live in. I carved the bottom part while Nini made a drip castle up top. Then we dug a tunnel through it as a hallway and off of the tunnel we dug little rooms into which we put sand furnishings. We hope the fairies like our castle.
We went to that beach twice. I think it was my most favorite part of the whole trip!
This is the pool at the fancy hotel that we were allowed to use.
Ixtapa part 2
The next day we got up at 7:30 while Mommy slept (she had an earache) and went with Gogee to the beach. We found a new way to get from the beach to our street without going through a hotel lobby. In the afternoon we went to see the manager of a hotel called "Dorado Pacifico". We sang for him. He said we could have three breakfast buffets in his hotel and we could use the pool. He was happy that we came to see him. That evening we provisioned a delicious dinner. The girl who we provisioned it from also gave us ice-cream. That evening Mommy also prayed with a very sweet man to recieve the Holy Spirit and he had a neat experience where he felt a cold wind rush all around him even when it was a very hot night and they were sweating.
On the way to Ixtapa,we took two busses, the first one was very nice. The second one was so-so. We travelled for 8 hours. When we first got there we went to the beach ,and Mommy started talking with a nice man. The man's name was Guiermo, and suddenly he said,"I want to give you a free horsey ride", so we went. And that was the first day. To be continued
(From Shelly) We went with Gogee and Mommy. The hotel we stayed in was very nice. It had quite a deep pool though. It didn't have aircon and it was super duper duper hot!
Once upon a time there was three brothers. The oldest one was John. The next one was Noah and the youngest's name was Joe. It all began a warm day in March... John and his brothers were having a chat when John said, "Why don't we grow a garden? We'll grow tomatoes, carrots, cucumbers, lettuce and radishes." The other two agreed. Joe knew they would have to work very, very hard to grow a garden. Noah called, "I'll get the shovel!" and he was gone. Joe called, "I'll get the hoe and the spade!" and he was gone too. Last of all John got some fertilizer. Then when they had all the things they needed they sang "Jesus oh Jesus" while they worked. Then that day was over. When they came back, they saw some tiny shoots. The plants had grown! They danced and sang. Then they weeded and that day was over. All summer long they worked on their garden. Then on the first day of fall, they harvested their crops. Joe dug up the carrots, Noah made the dirt soft so Joe could dig up the carrots easily. John harvested the other crops and their dad sold them in the market. The End
Dear everyone who signed on our blog. This is Shelly speaking from the Heavenly World of Mexico. Just being foolish. It actually is Shelly, and that's not a joke.
Here is a dumb blonde joke: There was once this blonde who wanted to get her hair cut. So she went to a barber shop and asked them to cut her hair. (She was listening to something with her headphones.) And the barber said, "You'll have to take off those headphones before we can cut your hair." And then she says, "Oh no, this is my life." So they start cutting her hair and she fell asleep. So the barber is like, "Okay, now's my chance." So he slowly takes off her headphones and she wakes up and she dies. He's like, "Hmmm. What are those headphones saying?" So he puts the headphones on and guess what he hears? "Breathe in, breathe out. Breathe in, breathe out."
Do you know that Tory just chopped off her hair? I should send you a picture but it's almost my bedtime and Mommy's going off to a meeting. So all I can say right now is Bye for Now!
A few days before today, I remembered Phill who used to live in our home and was visiting us, and how a long time ago he had said that the day I could tell him that couldn't eat jalapenos was when I could eat one one myself, but he never thought I would do it!So can you guess what I did , thats right,I took a jalapeno and a cup of milk and went to find him. I ate it and it was so hot my mouth was still spicy 'till school time!
