Miss Ava

Full of spunk and sass…three and a half is a pretty fun age.     
   

Last night as a 35 year-old 

The kids asked Carl to post a “last” photo like we do for them on thier birthdays. I love my husband. 

Summer

It’s officially summer with our first parade and DQ. The Ringsmuth Unicycle Riders did a fantastic job last night at the Avon parade.   

   

   
   

Calvary Orphan Ministry Garage Sale

We were blessed again with another great year.

$5,124.74 was raised to give micro grants to families in Calvary for ongoing adoption support.

It was a full week of working hard for the glory of God.

Max was pretty excited for the Free Sale at the end.  He was gathering up birthday presents for his sisters – Melt my heart.
  
Art the end of the sale, we have More for Less thrift store come and pick up the leftovers.  We met Remmi, Janny Slaney’s brother, who was from the Netherlands.  It will be his 71st birthday tomorrow.  We had many good laughs packing up in 90 degree heat.

Max quote

“Your bed was so crappy, so I made it.”

Lydia’s Amazing Creations

Lydia has been sewing up a storm of American Girl doll clothes for the boutique section of the garage sale. We’re really proud of her accomplishments.

If you want to order a set, she’d be happy to make a custom order.
