this week

This is Vacation Bible School week. Taylor is going to Stock Creek to be a volunteer in VBS. She is helping in music and really enjoyed it today. She loves working with Mrs. Sarah and this year Hannah is also helping.

Aubrey is going to VBX at Sevier Heights. This is Bible School for 5th and 6th graders. She enjoyed it today. From what I understand they had a skit with a live pig, played kickball, had refreshments, talked about creation, had a snack and sang songs. This is all she wanted to share this afternoon, she had a great time!!

After Vacation Bible School this week, the girls are spending time with grandmothers and cousin Kaleigh. Today, we met for lunch after VBS, went to the mall to jump on the trampoline and paint pottery.

I hope you all have a great week.

sweet girls

On Sunday night, we got to keep two of the sweetest girls after church. K and K remind me of when my girls use to be little. They are so sweet and we all (including Maggie) really enjoyed spending time with them. David and Sarah we are available anytime to play : )

Dance Recital 2010

As promised, I have a few pictures from dance recital practice and the recital. The girls had lots of fun and loved every minute. They both did a great job on performing their dances. I am looking forward to next dance year!! (there are 2 sets of pictures so be sure and look at both)

Busy Week

This is dance recital week at the King house. The girls have dance recital on Saturday. They are so excited. They just love everything about dancing. I love to see them so happy when they dance. They dancing in company dances, solo dances, and other class dances at the recital. It will be a buy time for them. So, this will be a busy week getting ready for dance recital. I will have pictures by the weekend.

I hope you all have a great week!!

Memorial Day Weekend

We went camping for Memorial Day Weekend. I left my camera at home :(
We had a great time. Nana and Papaw went camping and stayed next to us. Angela, Benji, and Bennett camped with Nana and Papaw.

The girls tie-dyed tshirts, did some rock climbing, went on a hay ride around the campground, had a scavenger hunt at the campground, watched "Toothfairy" on an outdoor movie screen, played Bingo, rode bikes, ate ice cream, went rafting, swimming, etc... It was a busy weekend!!

Bill, Tracy, Kaleigh, and Gabriella camped close by at another campground. Bill and Kaleigh visited on Saturday. Kaleigh spent the night and we had lots of fun!!

We came home a day early because it had rained every day while we were camping. We decided we had enough of the rain camping : ) So, we came home, unpacked, started laundry, and started drying out the camper. Then we enjoyed a nice Memorial Day dinner at Wasabi and then had ice cream at Marble Slab - Yummy!!

I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. I loved seeing all the flags honoring those who fight for our country. Thank you to the women and men willing to give their lives for freedom.


Dollywood with Nana & Bennett

Last week we went to Dollywood with Nana and Bennett. We had nice weather and a fun day.

Worthy of Our Praise

This morning I heard "Hallelujah". Whenever I hear it, everything in me wants to drop to my knees in worship or jump to my feet and raise my hands high.

Here are the lyrics:
Hallelujah, hallelujah
You are worthy, of our praise (repeat)

Be high and lifted up
Be high and lifted up
Be high and lifted up, Jesus

It's You we glorify
It's You we're lifting high
Your name be glorified

As I listen - if I truly let the words sink in and wash over me - they are cleansing to my soul. The words wash out the selfishness in me. The anger. The fear. The sadness. The anxiety. The critical spirit. The self-centeredness. The doubt. The despair. Because these words are not about me. They're all about Him. And sometimes I need to be reminded that life is not about me.

These words make me want to cry or scream or shout or weep or cheer. I want God's name to be glorified. I want to lift Him high....simply because He is worthy of our praise.

Take a few minutes and turn the music up. Forget everything around you and either get on your knees or jump to your feet.

Because He is worthy friends. He is WORTHY.
