Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young—a place near your altar, O LORD Almighty, my King and my God. Psalm 84:3

To My Greatest Fans...

Kelli's class teamed up with the 4th graders for "young readers". Each team wrote and illustrated a book. Kelli's book was a scary story about a man who is eaten up by a monster!

Kelli will be signing autographs at our home this weekend.....

Tuesday Treasure Jukebox Hero.....

Standing in the rain, with his head hung low. Couldn't get a ticket, it was a sold out show. Heard the roar of the crowd, he could picture the scene. Put his ear to the wall, then like a distant scream. He heard one guitar, just blew him away. He saw stars in his eyes, and the very next day. Bought a beat up six string in a secondhand store. Didn't know how to play it, but he knew for sure. That one guitar, felt good in his hands. Didn't take long, to understand. Just one guitar, slung way down low. Was one way ticket, only one way to go. So he started rockin. Ain't never gonna stop. Gotta keep on rockin. Someday hes gonna make it to the top. And be a juke box hero, got stars in his eyes. Hes a juke box hero. He took one guitar, juke box hero, stars in his eyes. Juke box hero, he'll come alive tonight......
For Eli's 4th birthday Nick was invited over to play Guitar Hero! What a band these three make!

Monday Madness

Our good friends and now neighbors invited us over to help celebrate their boys birthdays. (Eli is 4 and Omar is 2) Since it was a hot day the kids played in the water, Vinny took aim on the kids in the pool but our friend Nicholas shot back with the hose. Sal, Kelli and little Nicholas along with Eli and Ryan where caught in the middle of this water war!

Fun was had by all outside and inside! Happy Birthday boys!

It was award night for the Sparks too! Vinny and Sal along with their friend AJ all received the Skipper patch and first book completion ribbon for saying 48 verses!

Kelli only had 2 jewels to go so she will receive hers next year. We are very proud of everyone.
