Braves Home Opener vs. Pirates

The Braves’ home opener is tonight against the Pittsburgh Pirates with Tom Glavine as the starting pitcher for the Braves. Wish we could be there, but I have a guys Bible study on Monday nights. Anyway, there is a lot of excitement around here that the Braves might be back in the hunt for another…

Cinderella Ballet

BLOG NEWS FLASH: This is our 100th post. Not much in the larger world of blogging, but something for us to celebrate nonetheless! :0) On Sunday afternoon, Kristy and Ann Ferris attended Perimeter Church’s Academy of the Arts ballet performance of Cinderella at the Wesleyan Auditorium. AF had several friends in the ballet, which made…

Sarah Wynn Over the Vent

Sarah Wynn stood over the floor vent today, the result being quite funny. At least she thought so! :0)

Schaeffer’s Latest Game

In yesterday’s soccer game, Schaeffer scored his team’s only goal, which lasted until mid-way through the second half, when the other team finally punched the ball in for the tie. Then, just before the final whistle (literally with 2 seconds to go in the game), an opposing player scored off of a really great kick…

Sarah Wynn Reads First Book

Tonight Sarah Wynn read her first book. It is called simply, “Mat,” the first in the Bob Book Series. We all celebrated with her, and, as you can see, SW is pretty fired up herself.

Amicalola Falls State Park

Today I hiked Amicalola Falls State Park (about 45 miles or sonorth of our house), known for Amicalola Falls, the tallest waterfall (729 feet) east of the Mississippi River. It was a bit hazy, so the “scenic pics” do not do the landscape justice. But the videos below give a sense of the big falls…

Princess Sarah Wynn

This past Wednesday, Kristy took Sarah Wynn with her to “The Homeschool Hangout” bookstore. Sarah Wynn loves playing with the puzzles and looking at the children’s books. This week, she wanted to go as “Princess Sarah Wynn,” with dress, gloves, red shoes and all. Here she is by and in her “carriage.”

Fender Bender

Late yesterday afternoon, as Kristy and the kids were pulling out of Perimeter, a truck made a u-turn and the two vehicles collided. A witness described what happened to the police, claiming that the truck made an illegal u-turn after Kristy had begun her turn. Anyway, we are thankful that no one was injured, although…

So Long Chikezie

Thursday, March 27, is a day of lament in the Caston home. Chikezie was Sarah Wynn’s favorite participant on American Idol, but last night he sang his farewell. And don’t worry, we have a DVR, so we are able to skip the commercials. If you have a TV but don’t have a DVR or Tivo,…

Making Room for Life

I recently read a book by Randy Frazee called Making Room for Life: Trading Chaotic Lifestyles for Connected Relationships. Although some of Frazee’s exegetical points may not be airtight, his thesis is worth considering, not to mention a number of practical suggestions that he makes. Our family is in the process of making a number…

Meet Dr. Jeffrey Gallups

This is Dr. Jeffrey Gallups. He is the facial plastic surgeon who is monitoring Sarah Wynn’s progress following the wound she sustained to her face last fall. Today we met with him for her six month check up, and he says she is doing well and that we’re going to stay the course. According to…

King of Four Square

Although both Ann Ferris and Schaeffer are pros at Four Square, today after Classical Conversations about 12 boys played Four Square in the rec room, and I got to witness Schaeffer rule in the King square (server position) for most of the game. Way to go King Schaeffer! EDITORIAL NOTE: Okay, Kristy has reminded me…
