Who knew a simple last name like ours could be butchered so badly by elementary school kids? I do find the name a little awkward to say, but with having Jackson as a last name for 23 years I just thought it was me.
Here are a few that are my favorites thus far...
Various pronunciations by children who cannot say their r’s or l’s, or both…adorable!
Mrs. Milford- she is another teacher but I “can't be her because she is old and wrinkly and lives where old people live" according to one of my first graders. She was a teacher there when I was in elementary school…I guess he might have a point.
We were on a field trip on Wednesday and while waiting in line one of the students was reading my name tag and said "Ohhh, it’s Melberg! I thought it was Melbird!"
And the grand prize winner...
On August 16th my best friend gave birth to a beautiful, healthy, 9lb 5oz baby girl! The gang flew (I KNOW!) to Asheville where I had the privilege to meet Ava this past weekend. Let me tell you, I couldn't take my eyes off her! She is just wonderful.
Janice, I am so happy for you and Brian and I am thankful for the time we were able to spend together! Congratulations on your sweet baby girl!

I love you babe and I'm excited to see what the Lord has in store for us!

We had a wonderful time at the fall retreat. Jeremy and I witnessed the Lord working in the lives of the youth while we were there. My prayer is that they will continue to be sensitive to his voice as the weeks pass and desire him completely. The youth pastor asked Jeremy and I to come up with a game for one of the sessions. Jeremy’s game of choice when like this: 6 middle school girls had to fish gummy worms out of buckets filled with ice water and feed them to high school boys, using only their feet! You can take the boy out of Young Life…

NOTE: I'm sure I will arrive at our destination to find one tennis shoe, every magazine that he can find, and my navy flip flops because the dear has trouble distinguishing different shades of blue.
Such is life.
