We have had a whirlwind week around here! I love what I'm doing and it's been fun!
Yesterday we had a program at Ben and Sarah's school for Honor Roll. They both were on the A Honor Roll this nine weeks.

Last night was our bowling night with the church league. I started off pretty bad, but by the third game, I had improved greatly. The highlight of the night though, was this little visitor---

That's my baby girl. Isn't she the cutest little elephant you have ever seen? I just love kissing on those cheeks!
Last, our two youngest got their school pictures back this week. I cannot believe how much Sarah has grown up. She has changed and lost her baby look. She is turning into a young lady---which makes me a little sad and nervous all at once! She's finally got long hair! Bless her heart, she's waited 8 long years for that hair!
Ben has changed some, too. He is looking older and not so much like my baby boy. He is still the cuddler though and I will keep it that way for as long as he will allow it! ;)
Our friends and family that are in Israel right now are having a great time. After chatting with my pastor, I am thinking that Eric and I need to start saving our pennies. This is a trip that we would love to make the next time they go. They have seen where Jesus was baptized, Pastor preached in the synagogue where Jesus healed the man with the withered hand, they saw the cliff where they tried to throw Jesus off and have taken a ride on The Sea of Galilee. The hotel that they are at right now is 23 seconds from the shore. Amazing! They have done much more and I can't wait to experience that for myself.
I hope everyone has a great weekend!
