Jeremy's Football Practice

Here are some pictures from Jeremy's football practice last Thursday night. Notice how clean his mom has his uniform at the start of practice, and how dirty he is at the end of practice. He is playing running back on offense and defensive end on defense. His practice jersey is number 19. So far he has not broken any bones, but his forearms are black and blue.

Miranda's Self-Defense Demo

This is Miranda (in the background) practicing a self-defense demonstration for their open house in a few days. Yes, my little girl is beating up two people bigger than she is. But, I can still take her... I think.

Bokken Demo Practice

This afternoon, Jeremy (in the white uniform) practiced a choreographed Tae Kwon Do routine with two of his friends. They are each using a bokken in this demo. A bokken is a wooden sword. For some reason, their instructor will not allow them to use their real katanas for their demos. They will present this routine as part of a longer demonstration for the grand opening of a new martial arts studio in Wake Forest in about 10 days.

Gettysburg 2007

Last June, our family travelled to Pennsylvania with Margaret's parents in their RV. First, we spent a few days in Gettysburg. Jeremy and I love history, so I think that the two of us enjoyed this part of our trip more than Margaret and Miranda. Next, we drove to Lancaster County, PA. We spent one day at Hershey Park and another day in one of the local towns. This was a very relaxing vacation and we all enjoyed it. After a week, Margaret and I returned home while Jeremy, Miranda, and their grandparents continued travelling north to Niagara Falls and then into Canada. I'll post pictures of their trip later. Meanwhile, here are two pictures from Gettysburg.

Lucy and Aggie

Lucy and Aggie are our dogs. About a year ago we moved out of seminary housing at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.

One of the first things we did was rescue Lucy from the Franklin County Humane Society. She is part Border Collie, part something else. She is a great pet, though she is very active and mischievous. A few nights ago she stole an ink pen and started chewing it. Before we could stop her, the floor and her paws were blue. (See the picture of her paws below.)

A few months after we adopted Lucy, we found out about Aggie. We love Scottish Terriers. Aggie is our second. (Our first was named Kelsie.) Miranda wanted a lap dog, but unfortunately Aggie loves to play outside, and doesn't like to be held that much. As you can see from the photos, Miranda holds her anyway. Aggie's ears normally point up, but she doesn't like cameras. So, when the camera comes out, her ears go down.

Enjoy the photos!

The Knox Clan Blog

After several months of complaints by certain family and friends (you know who you are) because I never put family pictures on my other blog - "The Assembling of the Church" - we have finally started our family blog. I'm sure that there will not be enough pictures and stories to satisfy everyone, but hey, at least as more than when we didn't have a family blog.
As to the photo above - it is awful. We had just spent about 10 hours at Hershey Park in Hershey, PA (more info about this trip to come). In fact, we look like we just spent 10 hours at an amusement part, so please take that into consideration. Unfortunately, this is the only family photo from the last several months, so it will have to do for now. I'll post an updated family photo as soon as possible.
