This Week's Family Updates

This week marks a huge mile stone for Sara Ava. She has officially been home in the USA longer then she was in Guatemala. She came home at 2 3/4 yrs. old. She will be celebrating her 3 yr. Gotcha Day soon! It amazes me that she has been home this long ,when it felt longer trying to get her here those 11 1/2 months. Now both girls have been home longer then they lived in Guatemala. PRAISE GOD!!!

My mom made this dress for Sara Ava. I found this beautiful material at Wal-mart and then found this cute pattern, I do not have a sewing machine so I asked my mom to make it! Thanks Mom, it turned out great!!!

Yesterday Josiah Graduated the 5th grade. He is officially finished with Elementary! Waaa.... I can't believe he is going to Jr. High too!

This is his 5th grade class.....

Josiah received an Award for making A/B Honor Roll.

Then he received his diploma for Graduating Elementary. Way to Go Siah! We are very proud of you!

A quick little update on my running........
I finally started running a mile at a time. I am not running straight through yet. I have to take 3 quick little breathing breaks. But I am getting better. My goal is to be running it straight through by the end of Summer.
Finally..... I wanted to Thank everyone for praying for Karlton's work!!! We saw a huge difference last week with everyone praying for us! But this week has been very slow again. We are 3 pay checks behind now so PLEASE keep us on your daily prayer list! We can certainly use it! Pray for plenty of work for Karlton and also pray for some help with all these debts he has with his business! I'm afraid we will have to go bankrupt and loose everything! But I know God is in control and has a plan for us and will not leave us! I just have to remember that when the phones are ringing off the hook with people wanting their money. Also Pray that God will send us a buyer for a few things that we are trying or need to sale!!!! We would very much appreciate it!

What a beautiful dress (great sewing mom) and congrats to Josia for the graduating of elementary school! It's hard to believe that time goes by so fast. Sending you lots of big hugs and prayers that things will work out with work and paychecks. Keep your chin up.

Congratulations to Josiah!!! Love Sara's dress! You are inspiring me to want to save. Hubby lost 6 months of work last year and we are having a rough time of it. I need to go back to using coupons.

Have a great weekend!
