Vacation Bible School

Last week Naomi, Stephen, Ravi, and Joy went to Vacation Bible School (VBS) . (I helped out with Joy's class, the preschoolers, so you are mostly going to see pictures of her class.)

This is Joy's class.

This is her class doing worship. . .

. . .With Joy.

They had to stuff two bears each, one for themselves and one for children in Africa.

Stephen and Ravi in their class.

Here are the preschoolers walking around a "wall" that they made to represent the wall that Joshua in the Bible walked around. (The only difference was that this wall only lasted about two minutes!) ;)

Then they were able to walk around the church as a wall.

The children really enjoyed VBS, and will most likely go back next year!

(For those who don't know that much about VBS, it's just a program for preschoolers-6th grade, once a year for five days(Monday- Friday), usually around evening. They do worship every night, all the children do crafts, eat snacks, and this year they were able to throw water balloons at some of the helpers! And on the last day they have to recite whatever they had learned during the week. )

Ravi and his Friend, Mr. Dragonfly

The other day Ravi caught a dragonfly for the first time!

It was a small, black one with a green body.

Stephen wanted to take part in some of the action, too!

Naomi is quit the baker around here, as you can see!

Happy Fathers Day to a Great Dad!

"And He will restore the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the land with a curse."
- Malachi 4:6

"And it is he who will go as a forerunner before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, TO TURN THE HEARTS OF THE FATHERS BACK TO THE CHILDREN, and the disobedient to the attitude of the righteous; so as to make ready a people prepared for the Lord."
-Luke 1:17

The Twins Birthday!

Today (June 6th) is Christian and Josiah's birthday! We had a party for them a couple days ago.

We were just trying to get a good picture!

There we go! (We had to pretty much wrestle with Josiah for that one! He is very strong!)

Here's me spoiling Christian with cake and ice cream.

Right before we were going to cut the cake. (My cousin, Sara, is a holding her baby brother, Ronald Reagan, who is only three months older than the twins, but the same size as they are.)

Christian is a very gentle baby who loves to be held and cuddled, he practically lives off of it! Christian hardly fights at all, but when he does he'll lightly try to take a toy or hit Josiah on the head.
Josiah, on the other hand, loves to fight and take toys! He is a very independent little boy, who is also very aggressive! Sometimes he screams to get his way or toy. He hates being held especially now that he knows how to walk . My grandma said "trying to hold Josiah is like trying to wrestle an alligator!".

The twins are very different I guess the only thing that is the same about them is their birthday and their blood!I don't know how life would be without the twins! One friend said "they must be a blessed handful" and yes, that is exactly what they are! They bring alot of happiness to our home.
I pray that they, and my other brothers, will become mighty men of God and live their life for Him!
