The baptism service was amazing , Mimi was able to come and all of the kids came in to see Zoe' be baptized. This , of course, produced many questions about why one is batized and whether or not they could do it;-). An excellent oppurtunity for James and I to share the Gospel with them again.
We also had quite a few friends over and we've been visiting others...yes, other people are actually brave/crazy enough to invite a family of 8 into their home;-). They actually have 6 children as well and we had a wonderful time with them!Unfortunately, we got no pics of the twelve kids running around...maybe next time!
We began school at the beginning of August and have been busy trying to get in the "groove" of things around here again.
Last night we were able to celebrate Gabi's 10th(I know, I can't believe it either!) birthday with her best friend. They have birthdays only 4 days apart, very handy when you are best friends! So, the moms got to take the girls out to Build A Bear...it was very cool! I think we had as much fun as they did. It was a bitter sweet time though, we found out yesterday that they will be moving;-(. We know that the Lord has something great for them though...they are such a wonderful family, we will miss them. Here are the pictures from the Build A Bear adventure. Enjoy!!!
