Kids birthday extravaganza







































VBS

Motions? What kind of motion is this?



Micah doing motions! An improvement from last year for sure. He knew them all!






Annie and Ali got to be in the same group and even stand together for the performance.






Truth be told... Caleb did the air-guitar instead of the real motions most of the songs. It was so super cute. He was standing by His friend Tommy and they were actually both jammin' out on their air guitars.



For the performance Micah had the brilliant idea of wearing a kris kreme hat sideways to go with the theme. This years VBS was called High Seas Expedition.


We all had so much fun. It is neat to see what they learn about God as they get older. God's word is wonderful. God's word is surprising. God's word is life changing. God's word is for everyone. I'm not sure if i got those right and I left one out :) There was also a song in the play that was very meaningful to us called Ancient Words. It is about God's word being the truth and being preserved for us so we can have hope today!

The kids in the pool!

So Mark's mom just got a new camera that is waterproof, and takes video. So we played with it in the pool, and this is what we came up with. I hope this works!

Abi Leah and Micah



Berta took some pictures of Abi, Leah and Micah. Very cute. I'm not sure what Micah was thinking here. Abi is one of his favorite girls though!


Photo shoot for Caleb






Roberta took a mini photo shoot with Caleb for fun because he was being cute and here are some of the pics. They turned out soooo cute.



Slip N Slide with Smiths


We went over to the Smith's house for some slip n slide action and we sure had a fun time. Berta used her mad-fantabulous photography skills to capture some great pictures and these are only a small sampling of the cool pics she took. I should have taken a picture of Berta sitting at the end of the slip n slide risking herself and her camera for some of these shots. Well worth it I'd say. They all took turns running and sliding and Mark even tossed them down a few times and they loved that. Caleb is much more conservative so her usually walked the slip n slide the wrong direction. When we were right about to clean it up Caleb decided to give it a try. Berta spent quite a bit of time trying to capture Caleb's face as he tossed water up in the air, again, a risky job. I have some great pictures that tell a story about our day and I can't wait to print a few off and hang them on our wall :) Thanks for all your hard work!

Castles and Coasters























Caleb finds a dime!

I feel so happy about these pictures. I am part of an unofficial photo club and we work on assignments. Part of our objectives is telling a story with pictures and this week we are working on manually setting our cameras. This is a challenge but here are a few pictures I took. I feel like I accomplished both our objectives and did our homework too! Tell me what you think photog ladies.
