Aubrey's "first day of school"

When we went to Lima for Maria's wedding, we went on Thursday evening so I could be there all day Friday to help with last minute decorations, fittings, etc.  The preschool teacher at my dad's school had mentioned to me that Aubrey would be welcome to join them for class if she wanted for that day.  My dad took her when he went for Opening Exercises and she stayed most of the day.  To say she LOVED it would be an understatement.  She was so excited to get to spend the day at school.  The teacher just copied off the papers they were working on for that day and gave Aubrey her packet.  She worked right along with the class and did a great job!  It is hard for me to believe that she will be going to Kindergarten this fall.  She is super excited about it.

A little late, but too cute not to share!

Every year our church does "trunk or treat" and it is such a fun time to get with church family and share God's love with the community.  This year, we took a bumble bee and a ladybug.  :)

My Best Friend's Wedding

I was so honored when my best friend from childhood asked me to stand up with her in her wedding.  She was a year behind me in school, and after she graduated, she came to GBS where we roomed together until I got married and moved out.  After she graduated from college, she served as a missionary teacher in Guatemala for 3 (I think it was!) years.  Her sweetheart finally realized what a girl she was and decided he should snag her before she got away! :)  I'm so happy for Maria (and Andrew) and wish her the best in everything.

I had Adam snap this picture of me after the wedding at my parents house since I didn't get one alone earlier.
