Busy Saturday

Life with Evan, sitting at a traffic light
Evan: What's Ruby Tuesday's
Me: a restaurant
Evan: is it cheaper on Tuesdays?
Seeing three shirtless males, riding two bikes, one sitting on the handlebars at the same traffic light
Owen: they are dangerous, they are riding with no helmets, oo he has a smoking cigarette behind his ear
Evan: who has smoke coming out his ear?!
We had AWANA Games on Saturday. I coach the Sparks, it's a blast. Here is Erica doing the Sparkie Bowl-she is trying to knock down the pin with the beanbag while three other girls are trying to do the same-which she did and won!
Evan and Owen played for T&T. Here they are getting ready for the three legged race.

Another game where they have to try and grab as many beanbags as possible if their number is called.
This is 4 way tug of war-they have to pull 6 other boys over to their side and grab the beanbag off the floor. Here is Owen-he and his partner won their round.
Evan and his partner almost had it.

T&T won by a landslide, first round they had 104 pts. This was the championships and they won with 56 pts.
Next Evan was off to his Tae Kwon Do tournament. Here he is doing his form.
Next was sparing.
As we were leaving Evan says: I won 3 medals in one day! He was so excited.
He might have been a bit tired too. Owen and Erica were so good, they had to sit through the whole tournament and no one had lunch. Owen enjoyed watching the sparing.

Thankful Thursday

Happy moments, Praise God
Difficult moments, Seek God
Quiet moments, Worship God
Painful moments, Trust God
Every moment, Thank God

Friday Fieldtrip

We headed to Waikiki to go on the Submarine Atlantis.
we saw whales while we were out on the boat.

We saw all sorts of cool fish,

Evan was carefully marking off in his book the different fish we saw.

The turtles were amazing.

This is called a Surgeon Fish because of the little razor sharp fin that sticks out on his side. It sits right between the body and tail in that skinny part.

We walked through the Hilton Hawaiian Village and saw the cute penguins,

and beautiful pink flamingos,
