Friday was Colette's last day of Kindergarten!
I took a picture for her mom and dad at the door she came out of every day. Next year she will come out the main door of the school.
So this was her last day to walk out of her K classroom..
One of her friends saw me taking her picture and asked to be in one.
Isn't this cute?
On the way home she told me
"Being in First Grade is going to be a big responsibility"
Jim and I took her to lunch at It'z where we ate pizza and played games!
When we finished with the games we had brownies and ice cream for dessert!
What a fun way to end the school year!
Bowling...excited that she hit some pins :)
Did you do something special with a child on their last day of school?

I am thankful for FRIENDS.
I have a friend who makes delicious chocolate chip cookies and she gave me her recipe. After I baked them I put them on a pretty plate that was given to me by a friend.
I have another friend who bakes these wonderful peanut butter bars. I am so glad she gave me her recipe. After these were baked I put them on a pretty butterfly plate that a friend painted. She gave me this plate as a gift years ago when we were in the Army.
I served these last night to friends who gathered to visit with a missionary friend and her daughter. They have an orphange in Honduras and are here for a few weeks.
I took a few pictures of some of the friends!

Jim and I had an awesome week at the beach! We both needed time away from our busy schedules and it has been even more relaxing and fun than we anticipated!
Here are a few pictures of our week.
We are so thankful for this time of refreshing!

Looking west was an entirely different view!
We loved watching these little birds play on the beach.
And then snuggle down in the sand together.

Jim and I love the beach and have been planning for some time to come to one of our favorite beaches for our 42nd wedding anniversary. We almost didn't get to come due to him being sick. But just days before we were to leave he recovered and we were so excited that this trip did not have to be cancelled. We drove all day Sat. It took almost 11 hours to get here and we were so happy we arrived before sunset. As soon as we got our suitcases in the condo we hurried out the door to the beach. I am so glad I caught this picture of Jim rejoicing over being at the beach!
"We made it!" He shouts!
Today as I was thinking about us being here, the beauty of this beach and how excited we were when we finally arrived, I thought about heaven. What is it going to be like when we finally get there? Will we run to Jesus with arms stretched wide open? Will we have a huge smile because we are with the One we love? I picture my entrance in that way. I see me running and hugging Jesus! As I look over his shoulder I see all my loved ones waiting for me. The first one I 'see' is my sweet daughter Amy who has been with the Lord for almost 13 yr. and then all my much loved family and friends!
I think I just might want to shout "I made it!"
