The Teach Them Diligently Convention

This month has been a REALLY busy month for our family. I’ll start back at the end of March. By the way, this might take up a couple of posts. :D
Well, back in March, Mom, Dad, Shea, and I went to the “Teach Them Diligently Convention” in South Carolina. The conference lasted over a 3 day period: Thursday-Saturday. Some of the speakers included Voddie Baucham, Doug Phillips, Ken Ham, and Stephen Kendrick. We had a great time listening to talks, and visiting with friends. On Saturday night, we went to the Kendall’s house, and spent some time with multiple families that we knew. 

Unfortunately, I don't have any good pictures of the event because we forgot the camera. I know, I know, but you can slap me later.

Filming At Jamestown

Panorama of Jamestown
Last Monday we went to Jamestown, Virginia to finish up some filming for the video series. We filmed at Jamestown Settlement, a recreation of the original fort and town. It is right across the street from Historic Jamestown, which is the National Park containing the original site. The settlement is a really neat place. They have costumed reenactors there to explain the history. We filmed in the morning, doing a scene at the boats and three others at the fort. Here are some pictures

On the way back we stopped at a nice little country church. It was very old, and several presidents attended there, including George Washington, Theodore Roosevelt and John Tyler, whose house was very close by. During the Civil War services were stopped and it was used as a stable, but later it was reoccupied.
