Afternoon at Emerald Downs

May 17, 2009
We spent the afternoon at Emerald Downs to celebrate Gerry's 60th birthday. The weather was perfect; sunny. JR and I won the first two races we bet on but after that we were unlucky. After the races we headed back to Bill and Deanna's house for a BBQ and to give Gerry his other presents; golf clubs and a new BBQ and some tools. We also paid for his afternoon at the track. Fun time had by all :0)

Awana Celebration

Jacob finished his last year in Cubbies and is going to be in Sparks next year .
In 2 years of Cubbies he learned about 62 verses from the Bible.

Annie finished her second book in Sparks and has just one more year until she joins Charlie in
T & T. She learned 48 verses between her first 2 books, but she went through each book twice in order to get the review patch for her vest. She also learned all the books of the Bible. Only one more book to go :0)

We are proud of Charlie cause he finished his first book in T & T this year.
In his first book he had to memorize 67 verses. If you think about it he has memorized more than that cause was his 5th year in Awana. He has memorized so much and has much more to learn.

Jacob lost his first tooth

Weekend Trip to Seaside

May 2 & 3, 2009
Here are a few of the digital scrapbook pages that I did of our weekend trip.
We had so much fun there last August we decided to make a little trip for the weekend. The weather was wonderful and the kids had a blast. Good times had by all :0)

Awana Grand Prix

April 17, 2009
This year I was not at the Grand Prix. I was away at a Womens Conference. JR helped the kids paint their cars and took them to the races. I was bummed that I was going to miss it but I know that they would have fun. Last year the kids won every race that they were in but when they started racing eachother they started loosing. I was happy to hear that they all did well and had a fun night.
Charlie and his participation ribbon.

Annie wanted a flip-flop car. This is our best attempt at it.
She was very happy with it.

Jacob took 3rd place in the Cubbies races.
