summer bucket list, 2016

okay, okay, so its been nearly three weeks since i last posted, but i've been kind of busy and i have a bonafide, legitimate excuse:  WE MOVED!!!

we are now residents of happy valley, in the state college area, and we are loving our new home, neighborhood, and church and community, but all these changes take some time for adjustment!  so we are getting there, and really just enjoying the process and all the new-ness.

however, in the meantime, summer marches on, and i realized that i never got to share our annual summer bucket list, so here it is.  it is a bit smaller than usual this year, because we knew we wouldn't be able to do as much with a major move and all the packing/unpacking involved.  still, we want to make sure we live as fully and vibrantly as possible as a family this summer, taking advantage of the extra time with the kids, and enjoying the adventure together.



as you can see, we went with a "constitution" theme for our list this year, since we knew that one of the highlights of our summer would be our trip to washington d.c.  it may be a bit difficult to read, but it includes some of our annual standards, like ice cream for dinner (which we did last night), make a summer mix cd (done...awesome), and do an art project; as well as some items particular to this particular summer, like go to music camp, join a new library, and unpack all our earthly possessions, just to name a few.  so far we have done 7 out of 21, so we'd better get busy!

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.
