Family night playing dominoes. My cousin Mary was visiting from St. Louis. The adults beat the kids!! It was so great to catch up with each other. We are looking forward to summer as kids are out of school this Friday...it can't come quick enough.
So proud of my son, Jack, since his artwork was chosen for the yearbook. Sure wish I had some artistic talent!! Happy Memorial Day weekend.
Last week both boys made the Jenks Basketball teams for 8th grade and 9th grade next year. We are so blessed to have an opportunity to play for such great coaches! We are glad tryouts are over and we are ready for school to be out next Friday. Julie's soccer team won 1st place in a tournament this weekend at Union fields. Julie played goalie for most of the games and did an outstanding job. Way to go Hot Shots!
For a long time I have been meaning to share my favorite websites and I just came across a new one today that I wanted to share-Click Here to check out 2nd Vote and learn how you can vote every day and support the values you want to preserve. Fancy accounting and hidden agendas are everywhere and it is important to understand what your money is supporting. I have been teaching my children to "follow the money" to see what is really important to a person or organization.
Wednesday, Julie was Mia Hamm, the soccer star. She has a minute and ½ speech she memorized and shared with other parents from the class. You can view it below. I was so impressed with everyone's posters and their costumes for the live wax museum. Julie worked on this project for over a month. She learned how to utilize Google Chrome, make graphs and timelines. 4th grade is a lot harder these days then when we were in school. Way to go Jenks Trojans!
I rode my bicycle to meet John today and it was a pleasure getting to know him. He has been featured on Channel 8 and I lost count of how many people waved and said hello in the short time I was with him!! He has been committed to being in the community and sharing the truth and light of the saving grace of Jesus. Keep him and his efforts to start a church in your prayers.
Julie turned 10 this week! She is growing up so fast. Here is a picture of Mike and her before they went to the girl scouts father/daughter dance. They had a great time and attend an event like this every year. What a great daddy!! She is a lucky girl!
