Pics and events...

First let's start with a couple variations on a theme. Who do you think it's really true of...







And here's Josh and Sam with one in the Theater...hanging with the High School Musical crew...



Sam said he was tripping them...



Last night, thanks to a generous donation from our good friends at Youth For Christ, we were able to take our Saturday "kids club" group to a Modesto Nuts game. That's right, our local team is called "The Nuts" It's especially fun when the crowd
begins to cheer, "Let's Go Nuts!" We had a great, loud, crazy time.



The kids loved it as the Nuts hit the winning run while they were tied at the bottom of the 9th with 2 outs and two men on. It was a sweet victory. During the subsequent
fireworks show, one of the guys turned to me and exclaimed, "This is the best night
ever! Do you have tickets for tomorrow night!" We had a blast.



Today was the city's March against gang violence and we participated with a few
of the students we know. The crowd was small, partly due to rain and mostly due to
Modesto not really being an engaged town for this sort of thing. It's hard to get
people out for community events. But you got to start somewhere. The speeches were
good and mostly about preventing the kinds of atmosphere where gangs thrive. It was
good to be there and take part in something important in our city...



We even got to help hold the "Youth for Christ" banner and walk with our friends...



And last but not least, this weekend saw the release of the long fabled, talked, hoped and prayed for 4th Indiana Jones movie...



The Whitlers loved it! Somehow, Sam made it into the cast. It's good to see Indy again on the big screen. For me, it didn't disappoint.
