9/1/12 written Sunday 5/6/12 Maggie got Baptised...

Maggie got Baptised today!!! We went to the once a month Sunday evening church service at our church tonight...Maggie, Beth, Beth's friend and I went (William didn't want to go). We sing and worship, have baptisms, eat and the kids play. When they were talking about all of the people that were going to get baptised they said that if anyone else wanted to get baptised they could. Maggie decided to make this visible commitment to God. It is a full dunking at our church. The church had an extra shirt and shorts for Maggie. She was excited. I am happy for her. The kids had been baptised as infants, but it is good to see that she has made this choice on her own.

8/31/12 written Saturday 5/5/12 Prom...

Beth went to Prom tonight. She is all dressed up with high heals. She is so happy that she is going.

We took pictures in the front yard. She wanted to go in an hour early so that she could fix her hair with her friends. The dance is from eight to eleven. She looks so much older and mature. Beth is the first one of my kids to go to Prom. William didn't want to go to his Prom. Maggie can't go to Prom at her school until she is either a Junior or is asked by a Junior or a Senior.

8/30/12 written Wednesday 5/2/12 Lego League and the basement...

Maggie is at Bible study tonight. Beth is a Lego League which is a group that teached kids how to program robots. They sponsor a big compotition at her school once a year. Grade school and Junior High kids come in teams and compete with their robots.

We have started cleaning out the basement. It is going well. A lot of it is clothes that should have gone to the Goodwill and boxes that need repacked. I will be glad when this project is done.

8/29/12 written Sunday 4/22/12 cont. volunteering and McDonalds..

Last Wednesday, when Maggie was at her share group / Bible study at church. I saw a volunteer pulling weeds at the church. That is something that I could do. We are at the church on Wednesday and Sunday evenings and I could pull a few weeds while the kids are inside. We still need to find a spot where we can volunteer as a family.

After the Sunday night concert at church, the kids usually go to the McDonald's. Today the girls are going for the first time. They were each given some money and asked to come out in a half hour. I waited in the parking lot. It is difficult to let them go but they are older now and need some time with their friends.

8/28/12 written Sunday 4/22/12 William signs up for college...

We signed up William today for summer classes at college.

Beth got her Prom dress, shoes and purse this weekend. We took her friend with us. Beth got a knee length dress.

Maggie's air gun does shoot out a candle at 20 feet. What a relief. She needs to write the paper that goes with it. It is all due tomorrow.

We are almost done selling candy bars for the girl's mission trip. Selling was fun for a while, but now I would just like to be done with it. Selling candy bars in the winter isn't stressful, but as soon at the weather gets hot, I spend a lot of time wondering if everything is going to melt.

4/26/12 written Wednesday 4/18/12 air gun...

Maggie has almost finished her air gun. The first one that she built didn't work. She got onto the Internet and got some directions. We got another bucket and some painters plastic. This one is better, but still doesn't work at twenty feet. Half of the problem is the design, and the other half is the aiming. She still has more time. Maggie is taking the project to school tomorrow to get help.
