July- 4th of July, My 18th Birthday, Bible Bee fun and the end of locals
On my birthday, I received many texts, phone calls, chats, emails, gifts and even a video call! Thank you to those who made my day so special by contacting me somehow! My Mom said she had "hacked" into my email and asked people to say happy birthday to me, to make my day special!
I felt so loved, yet little did I know the real reason behind the email hacking...
Pictures with my family.
The next day we had a Bible Bee meeting at our house. Apparently, there was a lot of whispering behind my back and smiles... I never noticed though (for a few reasons.) After the meeting was over, everyone started getting ready for lunch. Mom said that we needed more food and if I wanted to, Dad would let me drive to go get more food. I willingly took up that offer! Dad and I went to one fast food Mexican restaurant and picked up some food. He checked his phone and said Mom needed more food, so we made our way to Fry's. I knew something was up... I could just tell. Plus, Dad never usually walks around the store with his phone out, texting every so often! ;) After buying a few more items, Dad said he got this long text from this guy from a school where Dad does landscaping. Supposedly, something concerning water needed to be turned off. He directed me to the school and where to park. After parking I jumped out and with Dad. We went toward the building. I was slightly confused as I didn't think the water thing was in the building. Suddenly, Dad started to almost run to the door the of the building. I followed, more slowly and what did I find as the door of the buildling was swung open by Dad? A surprise party!!!

August - Bible Bee Celebration Day, Bible Bee Campout, Mr. O. Goes Hunting for the First Time
The Bible Bee campout was such a blast! We most certainly enjoyed our time together after the summer study!
September - Sweet Sis' Birthday, Parents 25th Anniversary, Family Pictures, Nationals Practice Fun
Ever since Dad and Mom got those awesome cupcakes for my birthday, we have had cupcakes for every birthday and occasion, which included my parents 25th anniversary! Dad picked silver sprinkles for the 25 years and a blue heart, the color of their wedding color!
We have been needing to get our family pictures done and we finally got around to it! It was a privilege to photograph my family! It was my "official" photoshoot!
We asked different families if they would like to host a Nationals practice. Here we are enjoying time at the T. family's house for a Nationals practice.
Until next time...
We celebrated my dear Mom's birthday by going to Vertuccio Farms, for the fall festival and corn maze! We started with the corn maze.
Last month for Sweet Sis' 3rd birthday we took a little field trip to the Children's Museum. It was truly Sweet Sis' best birthday so far! (Usually we have a major flood on her birthday!) Here are some pictures from the day.
As you can see from many of the pictures above, practically all of the Children's Museum is made from recycled items. Despite that fact that the museum is for younger children, Mr. O and I still had fun! After all that, later in the evening, Sweet Sis enjoyed opening her presents and eating her cake!
So that ended Sweet Sis' best birthday yet! Stayed tuned for another post of birthday fun!
