Marci's 1st grade teacher, Mrs. Kemily Estes, told the kids around Christmas that she was expecting her first child. The class was excited and they got to see her belly grow through the year! We surprised her with a "Book Worm" Shower before the school year ended. Each child brought a book for the baby! Chandler was born early this week, so we stopped by to meet and greet! Isn't he a cutie pie?!

I was Marci's leader this year...we had a blast!
Mabrey was my AWESOME-SAUCE helper!!!
Marci was "Backstage with the Bible"
Drew Graves rockin' it out!
...And Paige was SPOILED by Ms Meghan in the nursery! VBS wore her out!
This year's theme was "Backstage with the Bible"! We had tons of fun, as always!! I look forward to VBS each year because it gives me the opportunity to meet new people...form closer relationships with kids and adults...and see the kids learn more about JESUS!! Heritage Baptist Church is an amazing church...we invite you all to come visit...see why we're different!!
This year the kids' offering went to the "Laces of Grace" fund. They gave $4000! For those of you who haven't heard of Laces of Grace, it's a local organization that gives socks and shoes to the less fortunate kids in our area. This organization is special to me, in that it was founded by great friends(actually family) of ours, Matt and Corey Graves...I've seen God in motion and can't wait to see the kids' expressions this year, when they get their new shoes!

There are several blogs that I follow each month...and enjoy reading them. I've contemplated starting my own blog for a long while...but wondered: "Will I be able to keep up with it? Will people actually visit my blog? Who really cares about MY measley little life? After all, it's not that interesting." Well...it is true...we live a very average life and it may not be too interesting...but I'm going for it, I'm taking the plunge! Mainly because my memory is NOT very good...and maybe this will help me remember things years down the road...maybe my children can look back and read and remember times, that otherwise wouldn't be documented. Soooo...Here....we....go! :)
