String Trio Pics

Here are some pics of us before playing at the church....

I am so glad that Andrea's wrist healed fine and she did a great job.
Elaina did awesome for only having been playing viola for a few weeks!!!

Outdoor Fun at Grandma and Grandpa's

We stayed at our grandparents house for the weekend and took lots of pictures!!
My dad had a high school reunion Saturday night and then Andrea, Elaina and I played at our grandparents church this morning. Here are some pictures of us at the park and playing in the back yard Saturday.

Ian's Surprise for the Girls

While Andrea and Elaina were swimming in our neighbor's pool today, Ian had the idea of preparing a surprise snack for them and having it ready when they got back....
is gracious
He picked blueberries....
with a little help from Mom.

He even gave them flowers!!!
Isn't he sweet?

Summer Day

The boys played out on the slip 'n' slide earlier today. Fun!

X-ray Results

We got the results for Andrea's x-ray. Her wrist is not broken, just sprained. She will be able to play her cello soon and is at soccer camp right now.
God is good!
2 Chronicles 7:3
"He (the Lord) is good;
his love endures forever."

Update on Andrea's Wrist

Hey everyone,
Just thought I'd update you on Andrea's wrist:
We are still not sure if it is broken or not. She got it x-rayed today so we should get the results tonight. It still hurts her a lot.
We are really hoping that it is not broken because she has soccer camp the rest of this week and we are supposed to play at a church this Sunday. As of now, she cannot play her cello and might not be going to soccer camp tonight.
Thank you for your prayers. We will keep you updated.
Jesus is the light
of the world.

Tuesday Evening

Here are a few pics from this evening.....

This is what Elaina would look like as a cartoon.....
(If you click on the picture it looks more like a cartoon)

Andrea playing her cello.
She just started with a new teacher today and she loves her!

Tonight she had soccer camp and came home with a hurt wrist.
Hopefully she is okay and will be playing again soon!
If you guys would pray for her that would be great because she is in a lot of pain right now.

Her specialty was dropping them!!! Elaina refused to eat them, but I think
she changed her mind when they were ready!
