August 2017

August brought the 1st day of high school for Elia and the 1st day of 7th grade for Ava.

Elia made the high school soccer team, and Ava made the middle school soccer team.

Love these girls representing number 4!

We practiced some driving!

We took Ava out to play some golf.

We celebrated Michael's 16th birthday!

July 2017

We started July with the Arlington fireworks.  It was a great show!

On July 4th, the Ellis family had a fireworks event planned to honor Michael.  However, the rain came and didn't stop.  The event had to be cancelled but it was rescheduled for Michael's birthday.

July also brought our missions trip to Guatemala.  

This was a dog bathroom in the Atlanta airport.  Sad that the dogs in the USA have a nicer bathroom than the people in Guatemala.

We have arrived!

We spent our 1st day in Antigua shopping.

I got corn rolls!

We arrived at Camp Calvary!

Time to make up 50 food baskets!

This was a baby bed the family made for their baby.

Ava was making tortillas.

This is one of my favorite pictures of Elia.  Pure joy on her face!

This sweet momma had lost 2 of her sons.

We got to meet the sweet girl we sponsor!

Guadelupe was playing house with bottle tops and leaves.

We got to take Mrs. Jones to see the school and meet in the principal in the village school.

Our block party got rained out.

The last fun thing we did in July was a trip to the Bell Witch Cave.  We started with a tube trip down the Red River.  It was so much fun!

Then we toured the Bell Witch Cave.

I had some friends over before school started back so we could soak up the last of summer.

We spend one last fun day at the Arlington town square.

For our anniversary, I made Kevin get a pedicure.  Then we went to the movies.  It was a fun day!
