Swordbear's Club

While I am at my folk's this week I will have something to blog every day:O)
Monday nights from Sept-March my parent's church has an afterschool kid's club called Swordbearers. They memorize scripture, sing songs, have story time and games for Kindergarten through 6th grade. Last night they had their awards night. This is the group.
Daddy and Mom take the church van and pick up some of the kids straight from school

The Pastor's wife Gina leads the group

Pastor checks the kids in and just helps out where ever needed.

Spring Snow

You know that spring is almost here when you have a snow storm on Saturday and by Sunday night it is almost all gone! Last night when we got home from church we were walking in from the car,in the dark and a head of me I heard "UGH!" and I looked up just in time to avoid hitting my head on what Myron HAD....
The snow from our porch roof had melted enough to slide half way off then refrozen. Here was this huge overhang. I am really surprised that it was frozen enough that when Myron hit his head on it, it didn't budge it(NOT that I think Myron has a hard head or anything) It could have really hurt had it come down on Myron's head !!!
Spring in Iowa..... Always exciting :O)

My Sundays

My Sundays are such a blessing( I'm usually exhausted by the end of the day BUT I wouldn't have it ANY OTHER WAY !!!) Beth, Debbie, Linda and I are the regular Sunday morning nursery crew. Then on Sunday afternoon our Spanish have two services and Beth and I regularly stay with the help of Nancy, Linda, sometimes and a couple of precious Spanish ladies. We do have a good time though sometimes a little hair raising. Last Sunday I took just a few pictures. They didn't turn out as good as I had hoped,but you will see a few of our sweet babies.

This is the newest member of MA. He is just a week old.
We had the twins again. They are just as cute as they can be. They are walking now.
We were so surprised !
And our Angel !! He is going to be out growing the nursery soon. We have had him since he was just a couple of weeks old. MOST of the time it makes us sad when they graduate! This is one of those times.
The other twin.... He didn't pose very well for me.... He was WAY too busy!

I am so blessed to enjoy these babies. Watching them move from the baby side of the nursery,to the toddler side, then on out of the nursery to class. I love them all!

CHRISTMAS Cactus ???

I think I have a "HOLIDAY" Cactus! My Christmas Cactus is going CRAZY!
About 2 weeks ago I noticed that I was starting to have blooms coming back on. There are 11 blooms now.
As you can see many of them are close to "popping". There are still two or 3 that are just starting.
I bet there will be blooms for Easter :O)

The senses that God has given us are truly AWESOME !! I was standing in a light rain and the smell was just incredible,besides how beautiful it was. Even made me feel better. God is truly an AWESOME GOD !!!

VB / BB Fun Night

Last night we had a good time at the Brighton gym with an action packed evening. Many games of Volleyball between the teem and several groups of adults and then Basketball games between the boys and the men.
This was between games when people were scattered all over the gym but there was a good turn out of friends and family to cheer the teams and fellowship. The next several posts were part of the evening.

For more pictures of the fun last night visit

These are the ladies that formed a team to challenge the girls. They won best three out of five, but the girls did really well and most of them were just a few points behind.
