We were planning on having a low key birthday for Mark but as a TOTAL SURPRIZE !!!!!! Our friend Becky,flew Amber home for the weekend! It was Awesome !!! We knew Becky and Joe were planning on coming up, they were going to come straight to Ashton basketball game Sat. morning. So the game had just started, they came walking in, all of a sudden I said "hmmm did Joe bring a friend with him? ;) wait a minute that's Amber !!!!! " It was AMAZING !!!! Screaming ,crying, etc.
Last week the choir from Vanguard was on tour for their spring break. We were fortunate to have them at our church for their only stop in California! So we were able to have Austin and 6 of his friends from school stay at our house! ( 3 guys ,3 girls). It was a blast! The kids that stayed at our house were Amazing! They played and included the 3 little boys in everything, basketball, archery, teather ball, video games , Just Dance, trip to Curly Wolf. And they squeezed all of this in about a five hour time frame. The next morning the Choir led worship for two services.They were amazing and the spirit of God was felt. The church fed them and they were on their way. After they left it was very sad ,much like the day after Christmas. :(
