Just wanted to add my pictures of superman. This is when we visited Metropolis, IL. Fun!!

Update on our life: busy! We will be wrapping up baseball in the next couple of weeks and football started last week . They have spring training until mid May. Timothy's summer is getting booked up with prospect camps. He is going to camp with Valdosta, Shorter, and Birmingham Southern. We are debating a few others. Just praying that God will show him his path and slam all other doors.

Here are our pictures>>>

Spring Break

We are home from spring break. It was a wonderful time. We went with great friends of our: The Fullers, and the Krouts. Matthew wanted to go to St. Louis - so we thought, why not?
We had such beautiful weather - God was showing off this week, that is for sure. We had a wonderful time and hopefully made some memories along the way. Here are the hi-lights.....

1. The St. Louis Gateway Arch - unbelievable! I loved it! We went to the top (all of us!!).

2. Riverboad Ride on the Mississippi!

3. St. Louis Zoo - Learned alot about the cycle of life - it must of been mating season at the zoo - so a lot of walking away quickly.

4. St. Louis City Museum - I have not words to describe this place, except - unbelievable. This is a great place for any climbers or just kids that love to roam everywhere.

5. Pappy's Bar-b-que. Voted best restaurant in St. Louis and best Barbque - It was all it says it is!!

6. Ted- Drews Custard - this place is along the historical Route 66 and has been there for over 75 years. It was very good.

7. Got to see Clark's gravesite (of Lewis and Clark)

8. Visited Metropolis, IL (official home of Superman) - this was awesome!

We also visited a cold war bomb shelter in Metropolis. We noticed it was on the side of the building and so... Tricia went inside and asked if we could see it (we are studying the cold war in history) and they let them! School - Check!!

All in all we had a wonderful time! Here are some pictures. Sorry Superman is in my disposable camera.

Good Friday

What a beautiful day that the Lord has made! Absolutely beautiful today. Thank you Jesus for all that you have done for me. The best part is - he is not dead - for Sunday is coming! May you and your family have a blessed Easter holiday and may we all be reminded of all the blessing we have in our life.

This week a family that we have known for a few years through sports lost so much. The father and son (jacob's age) were in a car wreck and both passed away. I know that this family was Christian, so there is a peace in that these two precious people are in heaven this Good Friday. But I ask that you pray for the mother and sister left behind. I can not even imagine what they are going through. But once again, we are shown how precious life is and how we should take in every moment, for we do not know when it will be our last. Love the ones you are with!!

Love you all,
