So thankful for Make A Wish Foundation for sending us to London, England!!! We are so excited and yet the preparations will be many! It is no small task to plan and pack for 14 people for a 10 day excursion across the ocean. The trip to the county clerk was the first step and only took us about an hour and a half to get done. The children behaved nicely and did well with getting their

We will be headed to England June 23 and will be back the first week of July! We will even be spending our 20th wedding anniversary in London! I couldn't ask for a better way to celebrate than with my entire family in a lovely place filled with history and adventure!

I found a steal of a deal at Goodwill! As I know we will be doing much walking around in London, I felt it necessary to find a good stroller for Selah. While I was checking out at Goodwill, I looked over and spotted a stroller that will be PERFECT! It is an Italian made Peg Perego stroller that new runs around $200.00......for a whopping $14.99!!!! Sure it has a little wear and tear but for the most part, it looks new, is a smooth ride, was easy to clean, and folds nicely. Now there are just a few more things we will need to look into, and then the real waiting begins.....the countdown to departure day! We are SUPER excited to have the dates now, it means we really are going to London folks!!

|Fun to dream and get excited!|

Life doesn't seem to want to slow down a bit lately and this gave us a great excuse to get out and recreate a little.
Enjoy the pictures that give a glimpse into our day!

Samuel, Daniel, and Nathanael have learned much and I am so proud of my boys! The team is filled with beginners but they are really starting to get it. There have been two games already, the first was with last year's champs and our guys lost in points, but gained much needed knowledge on how to play as a team and listen to the coach. The next game they won...20-8!! Of course they plan on winning many more in the weeks to come!
