Kelly turned 3 this month; we had a small "Bob the Builder" themed party.  A week later, Emily turned 5 and we celebrated with a "Clifford" themed party.  In between those two events, we added another member to our extended family; Eric's sister, Roxanne, had a baby boy named "Jake."  The first boy of that generation! Amy & Wendy were able to attend the bris of  their cousin.

Eric continued his studies at The Master's College, and is keeping up his 4.0 GPA!

Amy and Wendy were thrilled to have the opportunity to attend horsemanship day camp here in Pine Mountain.  They learned how to groom and saddle the horse, as well as some basic riding techniques.

All four of the girls attended Vacation Bible School in Pine Mountain.  This was the first time Kathy wasn't involved with the children, and had mornings to herself!  She spent the time swimming laps at the clubhouse.

Eric and Kathy joined Wendy and Amy in a baptism class at our church in Santa Clarita.  Amy and Wendy had previously made a profession of faith and we felt that the girls were now ready to take this next step, of outward demonstration of an inward conversion.

Amy and Wendy rode the train with Grandma (Kathy's mom) back to Modesto to be spoiled for a week.  Aunt Cindy and Uncle Bob got in on the spoiling, and they had at least one major trip or activity planned for every day.
