Pictures and videos

I just wanted to let you know that I uploaded some more pictures and videos:
December Pictures

("Tai-ann eatin' cake!")
(Follow the link above for more pictures.)

Here is a list of the recent videos:
A video from Carrie's birthday, playing with Sparky, Grandma and Grandpa.

The best one was Matthias' class playing "Feliz Navidad" at the Homelinks Christmas assembly.

Carrie Ann playing on the chairs at the assembly.

Bethany particularly wanted to share this one:

The kids playing in their secret house.

Rob posted a video of dolphins playing recently, which reminded me of a forward I got a little while ago:

The one with the nice music had embedding disabled, so follow the link:
Dolphins blowing ring bubbles

This is the one that came in the forward.

You can also read about the science behind how these bubble rings work -- even divers can make them!

Rob posted this song/video on his blog, and I wanted to share it here as well.

I don't know what the creators actually had in mind, but to me, it was the voice of God saying, "Be joyful! I want my children to be joyful!"
It reminds me of a song we sang in highschool choir: "And the Father will dance over you in joy" by Mark Hayes
(Full Text)
which was based on Zephaniah 3:17 (NIV)
The LORD your God is with you,
he is mighty to save.
He will take great delight in you,
he will quiet you with his love,
he will rejoice over you with singing."
(from the Bible Gateway).

Have you ever watched the movie "Evan Almighty"? The last scene always makes me think of this too. I am so sure that God dances, in pure joy!

Legalism doesn't allow dancing -- nor does it allow mourning. There are also times when I am sure God weeps -- at times with us, and at times over us! But that's a different one of Rob's posts!

Advent Conspiracy Promo Video

This is for you, Caryn!

More videos

By the way, when I look at my previous post today, it give white boxes instead of movies. Does anyone else have this problem, or is it just me?

Here is one I've been waiting a long time to post: Carrie Ann's first word. If you don't have time to watch the whole thing, skip to about 50 seconds.

Bethany's gymnastics class had their Christmas program last night. Here is her class' routine:

Well, finally, I have some videos to share!

Carrie Ann dancing, last spring.

We went for a walk on Nov. 22 with three cameras, and got a few videos.
My first video with my new camera.
Going for a walk.
Playing in the new water park down the road from our house:

Swinging together (I had to post this because Aria and Silas both posted swinging videos recently too).

Another time, after we made bean bags, we had a bean bag fight.

I have a YouTube account, with the name FRMBCZ (our initials all strung together). Search on it to see other videos from the past year or two (we've had a bit of technical difficulty getting them sharable). I linked all the recent ones in this post. Find the link that says "More from FRMBCZ" to see more of my videos. Enjoy!

Finally, I got it working (with Frank's help, of course), so here are some pictures!

We made bean bags together!

Soon I hope to post videos, so I will leave it to you to see the rest of the pictures here.

Too Long

Sorry it's been so long since I posted a picture! I got a new camera (which does videos, by the way), and a new version of linux -- comes with new versions of all the other software, hence... I have not yet figured out how to work everything to get pictures up. I am getting there piece by piece, and soon, soon....

Deb was right, it's not linear.... two nights ago, Carrie Ann slept in her own bed until 7:30 am (wow), but last night, she was in mine at 11:30 pm already.... well, we are still making some progress.

One more brag... today in school, we did our math drills as usual. Yesterday, Matthias and Bethany both did levels 3 and 4 -- addition facts up to 3+12 and 4+12. Matthias finished both in 10 minutes and got only one wrong! Today.... Matthias did 4 and 5 -- one level up -- and finished in only 9 minutes! Bethany finished all of 3 and 4 in only 15 minutes! (That's 50 questions.) Wow! They are learning a lot!
