Jump!

Shay (wearing the red jersey) just finished her season on the JV volleyball team. This was her first year on the team, and she did a great job! Her height and those long arms come in very handy at the net.

The thing that impressed me the most about her being on the team actually took place off the court. At the beginning of the season, Shay agreed to get up early every morning and spend some time practicing piano before school so that volleyball practices and games wouldn't interfere with the one hour a day of piano practice her piano instructor requires. She is so not a morning person, but she kept her word and got up early each day even when she was tired out from getting home late at night after out-of-town volleyball games. I'm proud of you, Shay!

Trip to Georgia

Last weekend our family traveled back to our "old" church in Eatonton, Georgia, to be part of its 25th Anniversary service. This was such an exciting trip for us, especially for the kids since it had been almost three years since our last visit. We had such a good time visiting with all of our friends at Grace Baptist, and we're thrilled with what the Lord is continuing to there through their faithfulness.
I sure do miss the beautiful views of the land and Lake Oconee.



The current pastor and the three previous pastors (including my hubby) all had a part in the service. The auditorium's renovation was recently completed, and I loved the new look!

Evangelist Kurt LeBouve sang several songs and preached the afternoon service. He and Mrs. Dale are such sweet people! I heard a little rumor that they just might be with us next month at our church.

This is what the kids looked like when we moved back to Florida in 2008.
And just look at them now!
