Sunday School

Today was week three of helping my sister, Jade teach Pre-School Sunday School at our church. :)
I wanted to post today because I was so proud of Dayton!! He was the star pupil today!! :)
This is his ark. :) 
The lesson today was about the floooooooood :)
This is some pretty awesome art if you ask me!!!
There's my ark, and my snake from last week (my craft goes on the wall so the PRESSURE is on!!!!)
Loving spending time with the kiddos (especially Dayton) :)
and so proud of him and his Momma!!!
She is an awesome teacher!! :)

One Year of QT with the Livster

It's been about a year since I started babysitting my niece, Olivia Grace, every Tuesday.
Today we had playdate as usual...
 and then she and Uncle "Tenny" fell asleep watching cartoons...
(please excuse the fact that all photos in this post are cell phone pics!!) :)
 and I reflected on the year of Tuesdays we've spent together...
how much she's grown and learned...
 This is Livi at an NBHS Field Hockey game a year ago today. :)

I love her so much and I am so honored to be a part of her life. :)
"I love you, HONEY!"
(ha ha ha MOM, that one's for YOU!!)

praying for peace

Today my Dad is singing "Where Were You When the World Stopped Turning"
at church.  I got to hear him practice.
As I listened to him sing, I tearfully prayed for peace
and an end to war with the Middle East.
I prayed for Blake and for all of America's service men and women...
and for the families of those who lost their lives September 11, 2001
and thereafter, due to this awful conflict.

Everyone's lives changed that day...

family reunion

Today we went to a Lane Family Reunion
It was at a BEAUTIFUL farm house...
We got to chat with some wonderful family we don't often see
and there was BAGPIPES (woo hoo! for our Scottish roots!!)
and I got to take some cool farmhouse pics :)
Dayton made a (girl)friend
and climbed a manure pile...
