You know you're loved when you're given a Rainbow Loom hashtag.  #JustSmile  #TheyKnowMeSoWell  
We literally spent 10+ minutes writing hashtags to each other after church.  :-)  #LovedIt    
Love these girls!  :-)

More pictures from LTC!

I wanted to post a couple more pictures from our weekend in KC! 
 Church #103
Me and my friend, Alexis, 
 Me and my friend, Leigh-Ann,
 snack time! :-) 
 Love you, Mom and Dad!

Here are even more pictures from the weekend! 

I also posted twice before this post, so be sure to check them out! 


Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, we went to the NCHEA (Nebraska Christian Home Educators Association) kids conference!  Hannah was a leader this year, and I was in the Leaders in Training!  It was super fun, but also VERY tiring!
Here are some pictures from the weekend!
 Driving to Lincoln on Thursday morning at 6:00AM!  
 Teacher Training for the leaders.  
Drama practice! 
I had a small part in the drama this year!  I was a french waitress and I loved my costume! 
 Hannah's team room! 
 The theme this year was Legacy and we learned (the kids learned) about Wisdom. 
 Their decorations were awesome! 
 Window boxes and signs.  
 All of the leaders! 
 This is an old suitcase that Grandpa and Grandma let Hannah use for decoration in her room!  
 Hannah's team name.  
 Never too tired for a picture!  :-) 
After that, we went to The International Horse Jumping competition at The Century Link Center.  We were super tired, but it was fun watching the teams jump! 

 I posted a post about my orchestra concert before this, so you will have to check that one out too!

Orchestra Concert

Here are some picture from my orchestra concert that was last Monday night!
Hannah wasn't in it this year, but I got a selfie with her anyway! 
Before the concert...
We played a couple rounds of Dutch Blitz...
 Tip: Don't have a conversation with the people you are playing this game with.  It is very distracting. :-) 
I love orchestra and my conductor!

This weekend we went to Kansas City Missouri for a program at our church called LTC.  It stands for Leadership Training for Christ.  You can do all sorts of events such as puppets, chorus, song leading, sermon, bible reading, ect.  It was super fun!  Here are some pictures from the weekend!  
We took Ginger to Beatrice so she could spend the weekend at Aunt Susie's!
No, I didn't have the cod sandwich. :-) 
Family selfie! 
We drove in circles three times before we found this awesome place! 
Cool chandelier right? 
This is what we could see from the window by the (extremely slow) elevators. 
This was our convention T-shirt.  The theme this year was Give it Up and the book we studied was Luke.  
Praising God at the Opening Ceremony. 
 The Bible bowl kids and I.  In bible bowl, you answer multiple choice questions on all 24 chapters of Luke.  3-6 grade has to sit in for two rounds and 7-12 has to sit in for three rounds.  The 3-6 graders can sit in for the third round, but none of them did.:-)   I didn't get to sit with them this year, since I'm in 7th grade, but I got a selfie with them anyway. :-) 
Me and my block.  I missed four questions out of one hundred!  That is my best score yet! 
9:30 PM small chorus practice. 
Saturday, 8:00 AM-Song Leading 
Hannah's Puppet group, Saturday, 8:45 AM
Saturday, 10:00 AM-Song leading 
Saturday, 11:00 AM-Puppets 
#KidAtHeart #LoveTheseGuys 
 Saturday, 1:00 PM-small chorus 
Saturday, 1:25 PM- small chorus 
We don't have a picture of our large chorus preforming, but here is a picture of us practicing.  Not everyone is in it, but I think you get the idea. :-) 
 Praising God at the closing ceremony.  
Hannah's puppet group was chosen to preform at the closing ceremony!  

We had a great time in Kansas City!  Can't wait until next year! 
The theme for next year is.....
                                                    No Fear 

Hmmm, my wheels are turning...:-)

Yesterday, here's what I read in my science book:
"Do you think every single seed that a plant produces will grow into a new plant?  No, not every one will.  The same is true when it comes to sharing Christ with others.  Sometimes, you will share Christ with others,  and it won't matter to them.  Nevertheless, we should still continue to plant seeds, because some of them will certainly grow and produce more seeds that will be planted to grow and produce more and more and more.  One day, when you get to heaven, you will be able to see all the work that was done through you because you were faithful to plant the one seed that was needed."
              -Exploring Creation with Botany by Jeannie Fulbright published by Apologia Ministries Inc.

Today, here's what my copy work/penmanship lesson was:
"Die when I may, I want it said of me that I plucked a weed and planted a flower wherever I thought a flower would grow."
