"But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honor, and some to dishonor. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honor, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work." 2 Timothy 2:20-21
Thursday afternoon, some of the Wahlquist family came to pick-up Caleb's riding lawn mower to fix it. Mrs., Elizabeth (20), Nathaniel (18), Benjamin (15), Andrew (13), and Micah (11), all came. Of course, we visited while there were here. Jaden had a blast playing with Micah. Ben is the normally quiet one, but Caleb surprised me by saying that Ben had read the whole “ The School Room Responsibility act of 2009”, to the other boys! I had been expecting Caleb to say, “Yeah, Ben was quiet the whole time...” Yes, Caleb did show the older boys the fake bill he made for a Blessed is the Man school project. Abby, Phoebe and I really enjoyed visiting with Beth. It's always fun when they come over! :-) Mom and Mrs. Wahlquist talked the whole time, while the older boys were outside (most of the time). Later (a few hours after the Wahlquists had left) , all of we Kautt kids and one of our neighbors' grandsons (Syler, age nine), played “baseball”. We weren't using a bat or real base balls, instead we were using a tennis rackets and tennis balls, and hitting the balls like you would in real baseball. Part of the game, we played in the RAIN! :-) Boy, did that feel nice! Some of us got soaked, too. But, it was really fun!!! Here are some photos:

Beth and Abby. Phoebe was also in the room, but was too far to the right to be in the photo.
The boys, enjoying the visit
I thought I'd post this photo, because Jaden and Andrew are standing almost the same exact way, and their hats are very similar, and NO this was not posed! :-)
