Mother's Day

We had a wonderful celebration with both grandmothers and Mom on Mother's Day!
It was also Julia's Bible reading party celebrating her first reading through the Bible!

 









Julia received several letters from folks from church



It was a beautiful day, so some of us decide to play croquet!


We are so grateful for our mom and grandmothers!

Michigan Association of Christian Schools competitions!

The four youngest girls had the opportunity to do the Michigan Association of Christian Schools
Fine Arts Festivals again this year! Unfortunately, we didn't get any pictures from the
Elementary competition or the Senior High :/

These pictures are from Junior High MACS.

Fun times!

Lydia and Naomi

Julia and Mary both played in the Bethany Junior High orchestra


MACS can do this to you
And this too :D

April

April was a busy but fun month!


Friends at church had twin girls!
 
Bella with a very Bigelow look!

Bree is a real cutie!








Unfortunately, we didn't get a picture with Lydia and both babies :/

Lovely pics of our crabapple tree...




Gotta take advantage of the nice weather and
teach on the porch!

The blooming tulips in Lansing!


A very good friend of ours, Nathan Spix, played his Senior Recital 
near the end of the month.
 



Nathan played Flight by Oliver Davis




The last pieces were beautiful hymns Nathan arranged.

Everybody was out for a wood day!



We were near Lansing one Sunday, so we visited Jon's office.

I think I am just as tall!
Looking out of Representative Johnson's office...



Long day...

Mom and Dad with #1 son

We are storing this...ahem...life-sized nutcracker that is
sitting in our basement right now.....kinda creepy at night!
