Take That You Dirty Fly!

Have you ever wanted to learn how use a software program but did not have the money to take a class or have a tutorial on how to use it? This is the case for our household. We have the same version of Jassc Paint Shop Pro 8 since we upgraded our computer back in 2003.  (Note to self. time for an upgrade on computer.)   
Yes, I know there is a version 10 and version X4 but you don’t always need the latest software to learn the basics. However, if you need the latest software or need an upgrade the link is below.

In the next few post I will show you how we are learning to correct pictures with “on the fly” training. In other words just doing it and learning from our mistakes and successes.

Spring Break In Texas

Does anyone else have their kids on Spring Break this week? In Texas it seems that every public school and every university is off.
We live close to South Padre Island and the beaches are packed! Since we have a grade school student we are sticking to the parks close to home.
Does anyone else go on a "Spring Break" or is this just a Texas/U.S.A. event?

One day I will...

Not too sure when we will be able to finish our video blog. This has been a really hard month for us and it is starting to make me mad!!!
 I am very tempted to just show case my very large student debt as the focus of the video.

 Instead I find comfort to know that when there are hard times, focusing on Jesus will help us overcome any issue that is brought our way.
