It’s National Kindergarten Day!

Awww, David has shown a soft spot for kindergarteners in the past!  Make sure to say hello to your favourite Kindergarten teacher today too!

The Brain Test!

Where do you think David would land?  Left-dominant, with the focus on rules, language, strategy, details, rationality and logic?  Or Right-dominant, with the focus on images, chaos, creativity, intuition, fantasy and curiosity?

I came out Left Dominant.  Click on the picture and take the test, and tell us in comments!

Memories with McFly!

Although this was physically very far away for most of us, David touring in the UK with some young musicians 5 years ago was a very exciting time.  And I love the fact that David was in a location where he was relatively free to wander and explore unnoticed.  We’ll post more pics and vids from the tour in the days ahead, but we know that a group of dedicated fans came out to support, and David made new ones too!

Here was the announcement that David was there to “support”, starting with the third show.  From McFly’s FB page:

David Interest on Pinterest!

David’s presence on Pinterest is really growing!  I notice many pics from recent FOD posts, which is AwEsOmE!

I have failed miserably on keeping our account updated there, but I’ll add some stuff today!  But you can always pin directly from our Frontpage too!  But,  you knew that :) )  Just glad to see stuff out there!

As Found aRound

Thanks for sending this in Joanie!  Looks like this is one of those apps that turns your pictures into watercolours.  I have one called “Waterlogue”, so worth buying (approx $4.99 on iTunes)

A “Smile” collage…

From Joanie’s post in April 2012, some of @SamLouiseG’s awesome gifs!  Worth repeating!

Prayers for the Boston Strong

Today marks the running of the 118th Boston Marathon.  Images and memories of the devastation and heartbreak from last year at what should have been a celebratory and positive event cannot be erased from our minds.  Over the past weeks, I have watched dozens of news stories focused on inspiring victims and family members who have overcome their physical and emotional injuries to function, walk and celebrate again. Here’s to them, and to all the runners who will also be running in the memory of those who are are not here this year.

The only live version of Running (that I know of)

For live video streaming online during the race, go to http://watchlive.baa.org/ starting at 8:30 a.m. ET.

See you tomorrow!

David Archuleta~ Happy Easter Sunday! Easter in Cologne With Kari, Best Hymn, Easter on our fb from David(DFT), A little Jib-Jab”Hoppiness” For You Today


 Happy Easter!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Called To Serve~ KLS~ screencap by me~~~~~~~~~~

* * * * * *

A Reminder of what David was hoping for us to do throughout this past week~

For those who chose to participate, how did it go?

 Best Of The Best: Today, Best Hymn Performance

A perfectly fitting category for Easter Sunday as our “Best Of The Best” daily dose of the Virtual Concert continues. Today’s feature is :Best performance of a hymn

 The nominees are:
1. Be Still My Soul ~Rexburg, 2010
2. How Great Thou Art ~Youth Group, 2009
3. I Am a Child Of God ~SLC VIP. 2011
4. I’m Trying To Be Like Jesus ~ Beaver Creek, 2011
And the Winner is…

Such a beautiful, reverent, and heartfelt performance by David. What I liked most about this performance from Rexburg (and oh how I wish I’d been able to be there in person) was that David chose to share this hymn with the fans…it was an expression of his faith and truly a gift from the heart of this “everyday missionary.”

Kari’s Excellent EU Adventures Continue!

Kari is spending Easter 2014 in Cologne Germany!!! So Charming!!!

(from Wiki) Cologne  is Germany’s fourth-largest city (after BerlinHamburg, and Munich), and is the largest city both in the German Federal State of North Rhine-Westphalia and within the Rhine-Ruhr Metropolitan Area, one of the major European metropolitan areas with more than ten million inhabitants.

Cologne is located on both sides of the Rhine River. The city’s famous Cologne Cathedral (Kölner Dom) is the seat of the Catholic Archbishop of Cologne. The University of Cologne (Universität zu Köln) is one of Europe’s oldest and largest universities.[2]

**What a lovely charming city to spend a holiday in!! I’d guess Kari’s family at home is missing her greatly, yet very happy that she’s able to see so much of our beautiful world! I’m excited for David to one day, also visit these charming European countries and cities so full of culture, music, architecture, sites, and history!! ~And ohhhh how they’ll love to hear him sing!!!!

** Thank you, Kari for giving us a wonderful glimpse of your Easter adventure in Cologne, Germany today!! Hope you run into some DA fans while in Germany! :)
