A humble and honest post written by Mary Beth Chapman (Steven Curtis Chapman's wife) after a long hard week.

Amber,Amber, Amber, what am I going to do with you? Awesome pictures.

I want to make a comment on your "Partenting is all about Seasons", that is a life time commitment of seasons no matter what age your children are.

I really like the Know your States game! I want to know how they score it, though, because I only got 86% even though my average error was only 23 miles and my time was only 198 seconds. I'm really impressed at your score!! An error of only 6%?!? WOW!

The unique churches were cool, too. I think I recently saw one of them in a movie.
