What we've been up to lately

This year is St. James Lutheran Church's 200th anniversary. Michael and the bicentennial committee have been planning the celebration for the past 3 years. There are several events that have already taken place and more to come. On Palm Sunday weekend, the Berea College Concert Choir and Chamber Singers came to give a concert and lead music during worship. They were amazing and a very fun group of young men and women.
Here's AJ before her Pre-K class' Easter Egg hunt. They had to find eggs numbered 1-10 in numerical order, so it was a fun learning activity.

On Good Friday, Michael and the kids and I traveled up to Johnson City and delivered a few Easter goodies to the residents of the Ronald McDonald House.

My lovely family on Easter Sunday. The Lord is RISEN! Alleluia!!!!!

Here we are at the Knoxville Zoo with a penguin. Do you see him ? He's right between DJ's shoulder and AJ's head, next to the reflection of the park bench. ;-)
AJ LOVES to wear dresses. She asks all the time to wear a dress to school. Unfortunately, I didn't feel like any of the dresses she had would be okay to wear to school (No paint on our Sunday best, please!). So we finally found one at Walmart that I felt could work. There were actually two she liked, so I bought her one, and she used the money she got from family for Easter to buy the other one.
DJ participated in field day. The way they do it here in Greene County is that all the 1st-8th graders at all the county and city schools have try-outs at their individual school, and then each school sends one person to compete in each event at each level. DJ was chosen to represent our school in the 1st & 2nd grade boys standing broad jump.
He won first place!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So proud!
Sweet wishes!
