Parents Nite Out was a pretty good turn out, but thank goodness it's over! Half the kids were very well minded and the other half...well you know. Matt and I could not have done it with the help of Doug & Reann! They were great. Reann is due in two weeks and still stayed to the very end! Doug even brought his guitar and played "Down by the Bay", "Father Abraham" and some other songs....it was really cool and kept them entertained for awhile! Thanks guys!
And Matt was involved so ofcourse there is a funny story: There was one little girl that was very 'free spirited' and didnt want to participate in any of our fun. So, Reann told a story with her and her pig-tales as the main theme. Matt noticing her messy hair, threw a line in the story were the little girl got a hair brush for her birthday.........funny right? Well......
As I was walking the girl out with her mom, she turned around and said "Someone told me a needed a brush for my birthday"
I know! I wanted to crawl behind the door and hide!!

"This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him." 1 John 5:14-15
Please join us in prayer as Matt's youngest brother, Leif, leaves for Afghanistan on Thursday for a 15 month tour. Pray for his safety and comfort as he is away from family, also for his continued growth in the Lord.
"He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust." Psalm 91:1-2
Doug & Reann (due in 3 weeks), Reed & Amy (Due in Sept) and Matt and Amy (maybe next year)
Even though we were pretty bummed about missing family vacation at Schlitterbaun it wasnt too bad...We had a cookout with some neighbors..hamburgers and homemade icecream. Yum. We tried to watch the San Francisco Fireworks show but the fog was too thick...I was very dissappointed becuase fireworks are one of my favorite things to do.
Oh what could have been.....
