giant, forest-attacking seahorses


jackson's been working on cursive in school, and he brought home a few of his examples.  he is very excited to use his new knowledge, and is so proud to write my name in cursive.  one day when i came home from work, the picture at the bottom was taped to the front door for me to see. 

also, the picture above was some doodling he did at school during some free time.  at least that's what he says.  i thought it was pretty cool.  when i asked him to explain it to me, he told me that the bottom is a bear (on the left) and a moose with a turkey on its head.  there is a small mouse on the bottom right, throwing a rock at the moose.  also, there is a moose in the middle, wearing a jet-pack.  he's not sure why.  along the whole left side is a giant sea-horse, "attacking the forest."  so you see the baby birds crying for mommy, as the mommy bird is returning just in time to save them.  somebody get my kid a therapist.

i will give you a new name

in our church, we are continuing with a series called "letters from Jesus," in which we are looking at the seven letters in the beginning of revelation addressed to seven churches in asia.  we are imagining what it would be like if we were to receive a hand-written letter from Jesus to our church.  what would it say?  how would we be encouraged?  how would we be challenged?  we've looked at three of the letters now.  this week we looked at the letter to the church in pergamum.  the letter to them includes some harsh criticism of some of their behavior, but it also says that Christ understands how difficult their situation is.  and in case they feel like they are stuck in their sinfulness, Jesus says something amazing to them:  i will give you a new name.  the world gives us so many names, doesn't it?  our parents, of course, give us our birth names.  but the naming doesn't stop there.  it continues right on through elementary school, high school, and into t

Milinovich Family Christmas, 2019

merry Christmas, yinz guys.  we've been marking our advent journeys with an annual video now for the last twelve years!  for this latest installment, we used the Tractors' version of "Run, Run Rudolph," as a metaphor for all of our running around, and i hope it shows that we've had a real blast this year, preparing for Christmas.  you'll see scenes from getting our tree, making cookies, concerts, impromptu dance sessions, making snowflakes, and much more.  enjoy. 

bad haircuts (for a laugh)

everybody needs to laugh.  one good way i have found to make that happen is to do a simple google image search for 'bad haircut.'  when you do so, some of the following gems show up.  thankfully, my 9th grade school picture does NOT show up.  otherwise, it would certianly make this list!  please laugh freely and without inhibition.  thank you and have a nice day.
