Wonder if I should get a different kind? This one holds around 600 pictures. I have a Canon Rebel XT. Any recommendations?

In a few days we will be leaving for the mountains. Three years ago we started taking the boys to the mountains the week of Thanksgiving. The first year we went to Chimney Rock, NC.
Last year we went to Blue Ridge, GA.
This year we're going to Maggie Valley, NC and we can't wait! I start packing tomorrow! Gammy usually goes with us but will be staying behind this year. She'll have our whole house to herself! We're heading out early Saturday morning & coming back Wednesday. We like to have a big Thanksgiving lunch at our house on Thursday. Then there's shopping on Friday with Gammy! Saturday we'll spend the day decorating for Christmas. I LOVE these traditions we've started.

You Must Be Born Again Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. This man came to Jesus by night and said to him, "Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher come from God, for no one can do these signs that you do unless God is with him." Jesus answered him, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God." Nicodemus said to him, "How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?" Jesus answered, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, 'You must be born again.' The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit."
Born once = Die twice, Born twice = die once

Last night's Bible study group video (on self control) was AMAZING. We're at the end of our Bible study, Living Beyond Yourself by Beth Moore. It's actually my second time doing this one & I have to admit I haven't really done it the second go around. But God's faithfulness is not dependant on my faithfulness & He had a message for me. I'm still processing everything I heard and the Scriptures. Thank you Jesus for second chances seventy times seven times! Here are a few of the Scriptures from tonight:
1 Corinthians 6:19-20
Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.
DO I BELIEVE IT???
Romans 12:1-2 I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
I learned last night that being at a comfortable place with my body (not that perfect size, nor being neglectful of my body) is more about freedom than it is about size.
Thank you for that word Lord.
I LOVED the story Beth told about the former Miss Kentucky that had been as small as a 4 & as large as a 14 and proudly announced she was a 10. (I was at peace when I was a 10 too.)
Thank you Father

I will be in prayer for Matt Roberts, who is leaving Sunday from Kuwait to Iraq. Matt is in the Army & volunteered to go in to a war zone so a married soldier, with a family would not have to. Matt, you are upheld in prayer by your church,

This is Dallon with his pisan Lincoln.
Roman made A/B Honor Roll, received the Accelerated Reader & Perfect Pefect Attendance Awards. He was bumped from the top Math spot by Reagan Ritsma. Until now Roman has held the highest Math score in his class since 2nd Grade. Gives him a challenge to work towards. I told him to watch out for Amy & Reagan this year, they're two smart girls!
Roman & his pisan Trey.
Way to go boys!!
I scrub the wall of fingerprints,
