School's Out & Happy Birthday Emily!!

The day has arrived that Hannah has been looking forward to, the LAST DAY OF SCHOOL!! It is a busy week around the Dear house - school, dance practice and recital, birthday party, and many other miscellaneous things in preparation of mom's arrival (3 days!!).

This past weekend it is hard to believe that Emily is now 5 years old. She is no longer a preschooler. :( It just seems like yesterday she was a baby. For her birthday we got her a My Little Pony Celebration Castle and you can see in the picture how excited she was to receive it. WOW the number of little ponies at our house!

Noel and I are looking forward to next week, spending some time together at the Southern Baptist Convention. We hope we will get to see some of our friends from down south. Who thought I would ever say that? Mom is very excited about getting to stay with the girls and see some of the sights of Ohio.

For all of our friends from the deep south - COME VISIT!! Ohio, so far, is beautiful this summer, the grass is green and the flowers are blooming, and Noel is learning which golf courses are the nicest.
