Dragons Were They Real?

Saturday-Monday, October 1-3, 2005-- Went to Tim's today. Worked on my van. Fixed both of the front windows. Then we went to church. On Sunday we went to Tim's and started working on the boys' bunkbed. We got most of the work finished. Still need to put more verithane on the wood. Found this interesting website on Monday:

View From The Pew, about Joel Osteen . . . . . . . . .

-- Dara, Ben and daddy went to the Great Valley Museum Observatory. Dr. Lubke was there, as usual, with about 10 other people. The sky was too cloudy to see anything, except for only a couple stars. We hung around chatting for about 20 minutes, then left.

Saturday, October 8, 2005-- Dara, Ben and daddy went to Columbia for the Harvest Festival. We got there about 7:30 a.m. Walked around Main Street. The vendors were still setting up. We went to the Falloon Hotel and enjoyed our favorite ice-cream. I had some kind of coffee ice-cream. They had strawberry cheesecake ice-cream again! Then we went back to the rocks. Ben and Dara spent over an hour climbing on the big rocks. We bought a copy of the Declaration of Independence for Dara and the Constitution of the United States for Benny. They wanted to have copies of their own, because our Rutledge ancestors signed both documents!

-- Had one of the worst job assignments I've ever seen in 16 years!! The students were so bad, that several Campus Supervisors took the entire fourth period to In School Suspension!! I got Benny signed up for the AWANA club. He seems really excited about going to AWANA. The kids played a fun relay race before class. I did some reading while waiting.

-- Dara, Ben and daddy went to MJC, for the Mathemagics presentation, by Dr. Arthur Benjamin. Dr. Benjamin showed lots of very cool math tricks. We missed the first five minutes, because they started early. There were so many people there, that they had to open up the adjacent room, with live monitors, where we sat. Dr. Benjamin show lots of tricks for figuring out math. He even demonstrated how he can multiply four-digit numbers, all in his head! He showed some tricks with magic squares, squaring four-digit numbers, again, all in his head.

Saturday, October 22, 2005 -- The three of us went to a teacher workshop at MJC for two hours this morning. The boys really enjoyed the presentations on Friday and today. Benjamin got to spend some time chatting with Dr. Benjamin. Benny thought that it was really neat that Dr. Arthur Benjamin has Ben's first name "Benjamin."
    This morning, Dr. Benjamin demonstrated that he could square a five-digit number, and also multiply two different five-digit numbers, and all in his head! He did some of the same math tricks we saw on Friday, and some new ones. One of his books will be reprinted next year. I'm looking forward to buying a copy.

Modesto Junior College - Dr. Arthur Benjamin at left. Benjamin Andrews on the right. Benjamin got the donut and apple for the Math professor. Benjamin really enjoyed chatting with Dr. Benjamin, and thought it was interesting that they shared the same name, one being a surname, the other a given name. We saw Dr. Benjamin on Friday evening and also Saturday morning. He did many amazing math tricks, and showed us various methods that we can use to help figure out very large calculations. Far right: Vern (photo by Dara).

Wednesay, October 26, 2005 -- Saw a rainbow this morning at 8:25 a.m. Dara helped out with Ben's AWANA group. Benny really looks forward to AWANA.

-- Currently listening to KJ-52, newest album
Went to the Fruit Barn with Ben and Dara. They had lots of fun in the big maze. We saw the emu again, this time sleeping with two hefty black pigs. Both of the pigs were snoring! I've never seen or heard pigs snore!

Fruit Barn - Left: emu. Right: emu sleeping with the two snoring pigs! These two pigs really were snoring! I heard a noise that sounded like snoring, but I didn't think that pigs snored. As I got closer and investigated, sure enough, the two pigs were really snoring!! Other people heard the sound and also were intrigued by the two snoring pigs.

Saturday, October 29, 2005 -- Went to church early today, to help out in the kitchen with making coffee, tea, and bake the cookies. Nobody was there. I waited for about 15 minutes, while Ben and Dara played in the field, then we left.

Monday, October 31, 2005 -- Went to church for the Harvest Festival.
