Preschool Christmas Program

We all enjoyed watching Katie's Christmas program at her preschool. Her class acted out the Christmas story while her teacher, Mrs. Bossenga, told the story. Our little Katie played Mary! We later learned from one of her teachers that she volunteered to be Mary, and we all guessed it was because she wanted to take care of baby Jesus. Katie loves babies, and is focused on the infant Jesus at Christmastime. She did a beautiful job wrapping Jesus and placing him in the manger. We were proud of her!

Here is a picture of us with Katie's teachers, Mrs. Bossenga and Mrs. Whitman. These wonderful women had Andrew in class last year.

Lift Off!

Space shuttle Discovery launched into space Saturday night around 7:45 pm....and Andrew, Katie and Josh were able to watch it happen! Andrew has had an interest in space and space shuttles lately so this was especially fun for him. We were just about to bathe Andrew and Katie when Adam brought up his laptop and said Discovery was about to launch. So we tabled bath time and enjoyed watching the big event take place. Some cute conversation took place immediately after lift off:
Katie: "Can we see it land?"
Adam: "No, not yet! But we'll try to see it when it does."
Andrew: "Will there be lots of fire when it lands too?"
Adam: "No, we hope not!"
Ah, the innocence of children! Enjoy the following photos and their precious, excited faces.
