Can't believe my eyes this morning!

Breakfast....dutch babies.

We had friends over for dinner tonight.

This picture was the preparation for making this..... was good!

Day 290 - Sunday

Here some of the older kids are acting out a drama from Jonah. This is the part with Jonah on the boat with the sailors (they decided to be pirates!) and the storm. They practiced last week and are being videoed this week. What they don't know is with that green screen behind them, we are going to substitute a storm. so when they get their DVD it will have that on it. They are going to be so surprised!!!

Jared tried out for and made the LR Youth Symphony Academy Orchestra this morning. He was then asked to stay for the first rehearsal. He's in the back left.

Day 288 - Friday

Is it football or mud wrestling?
we have had so much rain, our FB field is a mess
It is so saturated that the grass could not hold up.
I was very sad that the band did not march b/c of it.

The worrisome thing is that we are to get more rain this week and I don't think the field can recover.

Worked on Jason's Senior Ad today with
the yearbook staff.
This is one of the pictures in it.

Day 286 - Wednesday

all of our TVs at the church have died and don't work.
Yet, we really need one.
So last Wed. MOPS and our ladies bible study prayed about it.
The staff put together a letter to send out to the congregation asking if anyone had an extra TV they would be willing to donate to the church.

BEFORE the letter could go out, someone from our congregation called to tell us that he had a TV that he would like to donate to the church!!!
God is SO GOOD!!!
