Bible Bowl

Laurel and Matthew competed in Bible Bowl this year with our church. They studied Exodus 1-20 for over 5 months! While everyone really tries to put the focus on having fun and learning the passage it is great when they also do well in the competition. This year they both did extremely well. We are so proud of them. Laurel won 2nd place in her age group. Their team (2nd and 3rd graders from the University church) won 2nd place in the team competition (together as a team they had the 2nd highest score overall)! Yeah!! Here are some photos taken by our youth minister, Roy.

Indiana Jones

Carter has been eagerly awaiting the arrival of his Indiana Jones hat and whip. After he walked around the house pretending to be "Indy" for days with a shoelace I gave in and helped him order one online with some of his savings. He has had me logging in each day to check the tracking info. We saw it had been delivered and Tim went by and picked it up for him. Despite an earache today he is still enjoying having his new toy. Here he is in his best Indy form:

Katey gets bangs

A little girl look and hopefully less hair in her face.
