Our Week in Pictures

We got to attend the God-honoring wedding of this lovely couple!  Many moons ago I was the bride's sixth grade teacher.  Yes, I know, I began teaching very young. 

Our fourth born turned double digits!!  (this cake was not an accident, but the one he requested! haha)

Our daughter G was hired to watch a little two year old friend for three days, two nights, at our house.  The two year old slept on a crib mattress on the floor of our daughter's bedroom, and daughter G was responsible for all her needs during those days.  I helped only a little.  It was a great learning experience for our daughter!!  (and yes, homeschooling friends, I *am* counting it toward a credit in "life skills" or some such!)

The two year old got lots of attention from our boys. :-)

And because this week was not full enough already, it was also Vacation Bible School week at our church!  Our two oldest children were small group leaders, I was the 1st and 2nd grade story teller, and our other three children attended as "campers".   LOVE VBS week, happy to see it come, and happy to see it go.  We took the two year old with us to VBS, and she did super great in the nursery.

Last soccer game of the spring season!  I'm always both happy and sad when another soccer season is over.  Here is son C just after throwing the ball back in, and our daughter G being an assistant referee.

Our dog ~ the team mascot!

Yesterday was son L's last game in this league, as he has now aged out and can no longer play with this particular team.  He had a GREAT last game, playing strong and contributing so much to his team!  We are really proud of him.

Little Man, receiving his end of season award from his coach!

Throughout this season, our Little Man acquired a not-so-secret admirer.   There were a few times I had to stop some of the "admiring."

Daughter G left today for a week long retreat with the youth group from our church.  This is a first, and I am so excited for her!  She's the one second from left.

Praying before the send-off.
