For a few years now our kids have been participating in the reading program with Six-Flags. If they read 6 hours or more they get a free ticket to Six-Flags. When they turn 13 they are no longer eligible. Our kids love to read and really enjoy Six-Flags so this was a great treat for them!
Here we are...on our way out of the park. We ended up riding lots of rides and some we were able to ride more than once. Lines were not long and some of the rides there was no wait at all. It was HOT that day but not too bad. Next time we are taking Joanna with us!! :)

My parents arrived yesterday afternoon and we opened a couple of presents.
Everyone looking on as she opens her box of goodies.
Sarah is a very special girl. All her siblings think she is the greatest! She does a great job at making them all feel special. When she woke up yesterday morning and she came downstairs they had made her a Happy Birthday banner and hung it over the table.
Sarah requested that she make her own birthday cake, this girl loves to bake! On Wednesday night a lady at church gave Sarah a Two-Tone cupcake maker and a spring form pan. Yesterday Sarah made the cupcakes for her birthday instead of a cake. She will ice them today and we will enjoy them tonight with family as we celebrate Sarah's birthday! Sarah has asked for spaghetti pizza for her meal tonight. I am very thankful for God choosing me to be Sarah's mother. My prayer is that I can be a godly example of a woman, wife, and mother to her. Love this girl!!

We left Sunday afternoon and headed down to AL, spent the night with Bryan's parents, and had a fun time on the 4th! Thought I would share a picture of Pop and Gigi with their grandkids!! :) Thankful to live in a free country and for all those who fought to make it free. More than that I am thankful for Jesus who laid down His life so we could be free from sin. Thank you God for freedom from the bondage of sin! My chains are gone, I have been set free!! That is the greatest freedom!!

Back in Febrary our Youth Minister's fiancé asked Joanna to be her flower girl in their wedding. It was so sweet! She gave Joanna a beautiful pick box with some "flower girl" goodies in it and a note taped to the inside. The note was asking if Joanna would be their flower girl. Joanna said "yes".
Here is Joanna ready to go!
Here is the box and note they gave Joanna.
Here is a picture of Joanna with the Groom and Bride during the reception. (Sorry this picture is blurry, it was outside and it was dark.)

When made lots of friends during our ministry at SMBC. One of the families we became friends with was the Lambert family. We were able to see God call them into the ministry, head off to seminary, and are now pastoring a church. It has been a blessing to see God at work in their lives and how their family has blossomed. They were able to come visit us Wednesday and it was great spending time with them! They went to church with us and the Husband led our Bible Study in Nehemiah 8.
Here is their baby daughter. She is precious! She got right in there and played with all the girls. Can't wait to see them again!
