Odds and Ends

Whenever you see me go more than 2 days without blogging, you know things are pretty crazy around here.  It’s been a great week, but super busy.  Here’s what we’ve been up to:

Maddie at TapMaddie-She got a 4.0 GPA on her first report card of middle school.  Her teachers had all great things to say, she’s studious, a hard worker, a great kid all around. Maddie has also been working hard on her “Safety Dance” for her tap class.  She loves middle school and loves GSM, the student ministry of GCC. 

   Vote For Whitney Whitney-We made about 300 little  signs attached to silly bands that said, “Don’t Be Silly, Vote For Whitney!” and “Nothing Silly About Voting For Whitney!”  We also made a bunch of really cute posters to hang around her school.  Election is Monday, so we will find out soon if she gets elected school  President. She is also getting perfect grades (who ARE these children?).  Her teacher is confident she will be ready for middle school next year.  He said he is so thankful for her because she is very kind to the rest of the kids, and a friend to everyone.  Whitney is going to be a part of GCC’s Christmas production this year.

Belle's Kindergarten PartyIsabelle-Is doing AMAZING in Kindergarten.  Her year in pre-K last year was the best investment of time and money we’ve ever  pent on our kids.  She is older than most of the kids in her class, but her teacher said it’s only helped her be a leader of her class.  She’s gotten numerous “Shine” awards because she is such a helpful kid.  She is a special friend to one of the special needs kids in her class, and loves to help her and play with her.  I got to go help out at her Fall Party and had lots of fun!

image   Rajendran and Prema are here visiting from India.  We are so happy they are here, and will be spending lots of time with them over the next few weeks.  They are like family to us, and love spending time with them.  Rob made Raj a very special necklace, “just like” the ones we get when we go to India.  Raj laughed and laughed.

All in all it’s been a great week.  We’ve finished up the Share The Well script for our book, and spent the week polishing up the DVD script.  It’s been a great week.  I’m so thankful for the life God has given me.  Hope you have a great weekend!

    I had a dream the other night I was driving in my car and you were in a bus. I pulled up next to the bus and yelled at you, asking for your new book. You opened the bus door to hand it to me just as the bus took off so I had to drive & reach for the book at the same time. It was very dangerous but we made it, with no help from stunt doubles or anything. You even autographed it for me. I HAVE THE MOST WEIRD DREAMS!!!!!!!

      That is super-hilarious. I am so glad we didn’t require stunt doubles. We are way too awesome for that. 🙂
