A few notable things

Last week has been a little crazy with hubs coming home, basketball, Awana grand prix, etc.
  • Awana Grand Prix - this was Hannah first adventure into the world or making a car to race it. I let hubs take over in this area except I did help in the naming of the car. She was soooo excited about this, and little did we know how excited when it became actual race day. I was thankful hubby was able to be there. It was originally the week before when he was out of town, but thanks to a "little" snow it was postponed til this past week. I had to rotate between Emily racing her Hot Wheels car in Sparkys and the BIG ONE. Sadly I think I missed Emily's little race. Hannah car - THE BEDDAR CHEDDAR - performed well. It came in 2nd and 3rd in all its races. The one thing she most wanted was the Novelty Award. There were 3 divisions in which you could win something -- the actual race, car design, and novelty car. Guess what - she won 1st in novelty. Oh you should have seen her face. You would have thought Ed McMahon had shown up and given her a giant check. Hubby just want everyone to be afraid for next year. We will give Jim Prater a run for his money.

  • UPWARD Basketball - one word for you OVER!!!! It was a good year with great coaches. Hannah is learning some good fundamentals of the game. She had a great last game with 6 points. Emily made 3 baskets this entire season and SADLY I missed everyone of them because of the trasporting Hannah to her games. THANK YOU Hubby for taping her score in the last game.
We are just happy hubby is home. Maybe if I remember I will take a picture of the sign we held up at the airport. We did get someone asking if hubs was in the service. I said no, but that he was on a mission trip. The man did say that was good too. I don't know if hubby will post this picture or not, but here is the little boy named after him in Kenya. Many of you heard of the story last night about that came to be. Hubby was able to do a baby dedication there and able to lead the father to Christ during the dedication. The mom was already a believer. After the service they changed the baby's name to my hubby's name. So he now has a little African spiritual son. You should have heard the entire church awe over that.

What an awesome thing to have happen on top of the already great things that took place in Kenya. I will never in a million years understand how Pastor Noel can wear a suit in 95 degree weather and not be sweating buckets, I mean I cant wear a long sleeve shirt to church because I might pass out. I pray that I will either loose a ton of weight or that it is 75 degrees the whole time the next team is there.
