The school year is winding down and we've had a few year-end events. First, was our girls' Awana awards night. Awana is a program at our church for children--held every Wednesday night. At the end of the year, the kids receive awards for participating.
Yes, you see one extra cute Chinese girl in the picture(far right)--Molly's best buddy, Shali, at church! And SaraGrace cannot resist mugging for the camera...she's so shy, we're kinda worried....
The second event was Ryan's Agriculture Tech banquet. Jeff and I were cracking up that in less than one week, Ryan was seen wearing a tie, not once, but TWICE. This is the kid who thinks I am making him dress up if he has to wear a polo shirt. But here he was, WILLINGLY wearing a tie twice in one week. First prom, and then the banquet.

And last but not least, our sweet Jillian was baptized on Sunday. We are so happy that she has taken this step to tell those around her that she loves Jesus and wants to follow Him.
We only have a "Before" picture because the camera card was full (argh), but we do have the whole thing on video, thankfully.
