Birthday Gifts

Today is my birthday and it is kind of a big number. But, my husband and children really loved on me today and reminded me of how blessed I am, so I think I am okay with the big number now. :-)
Another reason I am over the big number is that I am so excited because... I got a new camera!!!
This is a camera I have been wanting for quite sometime now. Well, I don't actually have it yet, but I just ordered it online and should get it this week! I can hardly believe it! Happy birthday to me! :-)

Talent Show

Our co-op held a talent show tonight that both Grant and Kate participated in. Grant sang a song and Kate played a piano piece. Both of them were a bit nervous beforehand, but they both did well. Here they are with some friends before the show started.

And, here they are during their performances. :-)

It was a good experience for each of them. I'm glad they had the opportunity to prepare and practice something and then present it in front of a group.

Staff Retreat

We were able to get away for a few days with our staff team to relax, hang out together and enjoy the frozen beauty of the north shore of Lake Superior. Dave took the kids snowshoeing one day while I spent time with some of the other women. We all had a great time. :-)
