I LOVE this photo that Kevin took of Emily at her dance performance last week. Not sure which I find more impressive - his photo editing prowess or how darn beautiful that young lady is!! I can't help but think it looks like a 17th century painting!


We wrapped up another year of AWANA tonight. No more "Sparks" at our house after tonight . . . and only a few years away from a Citation Award! ~ how can that be???! Proud of our kids for working so hard and thankful for really great leaders!

Our family is at a conference this weekend in Estes park and had the privilege of participating in a work project yesterday doing clean up in a flood ravaged community (just outside of town). It was heart breaking to see what devastation remains (even after 8 months of intense clean up). If you're looking for a meaningful outreach, with a group who isn't afraid of getting dirty, consider helping them. They only have until mid May to get debris pulled out into piles near the road (in order for FEMA trucks to take it away) after that they are on their own
