The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. ~Philippians 4:4-9

Our family is a circle of strength and love, with every birth and every union, the circle will grow, every joy shared adds more love, every crisis faced together, makes the circle stronger

Last night as an AWANAS Cubbie, pickin some strawberries and a drive thru zoo......

Last night was Sam's last night as a Cubbie in our AWANA's program at church. He has done it for the last 2 years and has learned so much. It has always amazed me how he memorized bible verses so easily, I pray he will always hide those verses in his heart and never forget them! Next year he will move up to Sparks. This whole transition to a big kindergartner is gonna be tough! Here are some pictures of Sam and his other cubbie friends singing their motto song and getting awards.

Today we ventured out even though we were supposed to be home because of the swine flu. We went to Browns farm to pick strawberries. I thought that Sam would enjoy it and I was right. He thought it was the greatest thing ever to pick his own strawberries!!!! He had to try one before we could even get done picking them. These are the best ever, juicy and sweet!! No need for sugar! Anybody have any great strawberry recipes they want to share?????
Here are some pics of us havin fun pickin them!

Then we went to Harmony Park Safari, it is a drive thru zoo!!! This was all new to me. They give you food to feed the animals and you just drive through..... all the animals start coming to your car cause they know its eatin time!! Emus, rams, deer, lamas, horses, monkeys..... then there are aligator, turtles....... The Emu kind of scared us a little bit, they just wanted to get right on in the car with us!!! We had to be careful when they were around to just crack the window a little and it scared Sam a little too. The horse was real friendly and just ate from your hand, the other animals you just threw the food out to them. It was definitely a different zoo experience, but we enjoyed it! Here are some pics of the zoo as well.

I know it looks like they are kissing but theres is a window between them, cute huh?
