The girls are all doing Spring soccer this year. Ashley and Bethany are on the same team, which makes getting them all to practice a litte easier. Ash and Beth's team is called the Pyromaniacs...yes Ashley chose the name again this year.
Both of the girls love to play Defender, but Bethany has ventured up to being a striker and almost scoring a goal.

Carlie is on the U10 and still plays co-ed, although her team is a majority of girls. I feel bad but I don't even know her team name, I have not got to see any of Carlie's games yet, as I have been gone every weekend. Tim tells me she does great. I am looking forward to watching one this weekend!

Ashley is into wearing crazy socks. Especially crazy argyle ones!

DiscipleNow 2008

This past weekend, our church and 2 others hosted Disciple Now. This is a weekend event where youth kids get together to get fired up about being a Chirstian, and to dig a little deeper into what that means. We had a fabulous speaker for the weekend, Jacque who really laid out some great messages for the kids to think about. Also he was extremely funny. We hosted a group of 8 middle school girls...need I say more!

Our girls really enjoyed the weekend and learned a lot. Here are some pictures of the girls during their free time that weekend.

Last weekend, my friend Shawn and I took our girls: Ashley, Bethany, Krista, and Dorothy to a lifeway conference called, You and Your Girl. It was in Fredericksburg VA. so we made a weekend of it. Friday night we spent shopping and going to The Melting Pot, for Ashley's B-day, as well as a few other food choices!
The conference was a really neat time for girls and their moms to fellowship and learn some things that will help us all be better Moms and daughters. There were some really great speakers-Vicki Courtney and Jackie Kendall. They also had great music with Lindsay Kane, the girls got a picture with her. It was a great experience.

Ashley's 15th Birthday Party

Last Friday night,
Ashley celebrated her 15th birthday, with a Bunco party. Once your kids become teenagers, it gets harder to come up with fun themes, but I think we did. The girls had a blast playing Bunco and winning prizes. The fact that you got a "Loser" prize was a concept they all found fun! We made Bunco cupcakes, and had all kinds of snacks. The girls slept over...if you call it sleep, and Ashley had a great time!
