Rockstar Birthday Party

So June turned 3 on October 15, 2010. My camera was broken and I had to rely on friends and my phone for pictures. so I apologize ahead of time for lack of pics and poor quality. June wanted a Flyleaf birthday. That is her favorite band. We had visited a music class called WeeRock and loved it. I found out the lady, Heidi, did birthday parties and knew that would be perfect for June. So we invited some friends with microphone invitations.
Then we met at Mama's Hip with friends dressed in Rockstar attire. Red hair even. Heidi led us in songs and we played instruments. She played June's favorite Flyleaf song to jam to with instruments. Afterwards, we ate microphone cupcakes and opened presents. Heidi gave June a harmonica for her present.We have enjoyed it thoroughly since then. Everyone including the adults had a really good time. It turned out to be a very special birthday.

Update: My friend gave me some pictures she took at the party. Yay! see below.

Transition: looking for a home and a school

Our family is in a state of transition in a few areas. The first is church. We are in the process of switching to Sojourn Church. awesome place and we feel it is right for us at this time. We love our previous church. It was like a parent church for me. They helped us build a foundation and now we feel we are ready for something more. I am a better wife and mother due to the work God has done through the people at Highview. We will still do wednesday night honeybees and cubbies since Sojourn does not have this program. we were pumped about Sojourn, then we found out they have another campus that might be an option for us. So now we are not as sure as were thought we were about were to go to church. We are ready to find our "home" and stop floating around. It is so important to get plugged in quick. The second is finding an elementary school for Bay next year. We have visited 3 of the schools in our cluster so far. many more to go. I would like to visit 2-3 more. I have to put 4 choices down on the application in February. The choices are not guaranteed. They pick from the lottery system. I am struggling with a great school far away or a good school really close to home. Prayer is needed. We want to be where God wants us to be not where we think we want to be.
