As you come to him, the living Stone--rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him--you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 2: 4-5

Various Stuff

This post is going to be a catch-all for all the various pictures that I've taken over the last week that really don't have enough meat to warrant their own. It's not been many, and the quality of the ones I did take is questionable. But, without further ado....

Hannah modeling for us the latest in pre-school couture...
And with big sister (whose skirt she borrowed for this "dress")
The LAST--for real, they tell us--Senior Event--the athletic awards ceremony. Here is Josh (he's the one walking across the stage to receive the award) receiving the Kingdom Athete Award for soccer. This award was given to the student athlete that exemplified a Christlike attitude and servant leadership while on the team. So so proud!

Hannah got a new high chair from Grandma. She'd been eating in her bouncy chair, which was getting increasingly too small, and this arrived yesterday as a surprise! It has elephants on it, so that it can be passed down to my sister's twins to be--Cole and Clare--when they are old enough!

And finally...Charlotte attended her first wedding today. Daryl's sister Donna's oldest, Stacey, married Casey in an outside ceremony by the pond. Everything was western themed from the all jean dress code (except the bride, who looked gorgeous in her dress and the handful of people--including me and little girls--who bucked the system and wore dresses) to the cowboy boots and cowboy hats to the multicolored sand they poured into a vase in place of a unity candle.
Daryl was in charge of the picture taking, as I had to leave with Charlotte.
And this is what we got.
The newest member of the Stone family: Grayson, born March 2
Hannah throwing rocks into the pond. She also caught teeny tiny little frogs and when I told her they were NOT going home with us, she threw them into the pond with equal abandon.
Yep...that's it. No bride, no groom. No cute pictures of Addison chasing Hannah around trying to hold her hand. No sweet pictures of Uncle Donald and Aunt Tricia holding Char. No picture of the girls in their matching ladybug dresses, looking adorable.
Three and a half days left of children at school and then some time off. Fingers crossed for a better picture taking/bogging week!
