October highlights

Friday, October 31st, 2003
Our homeschool drama group got into full swing this month. This year, all of the children will be angels in Heaven preparing for the birth of Jesus.
Kathy is running the sound board again.  Our church opened it's new worship center this month. Amy and Wendy were onstage singing with their choir a couple of weeks after its opening. Their choir kicked off the "Operation Christmas Child" ministry, which our family has been excited about supporting. Eric's grandparents, Skip and Nelly Stelter, celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. We had a wonderful evening with them sharing memories and hugs.  The girls presented them with gifts of song - they performed songs that were popular the year they were married. After literally saving our pennies, we were able to purchase our Disneyland annual passes. What a grand time we had going to the Park. It is truly one of our favorite places to be.  Our daughters amazed and delighted us with their Awana awards this month.  Both Kelly and Emily earned the top awards for their age group.  Wendy and Amy, indeed, met their challenge and earned the Timothy Award a year early.  They memorized over 360 Bible verses to accomplish this. We were on fire watch this month.  With our travels to and from the city, we saw many of the Los Angeles area fires from a distance. The smoke and ash was everywhere. God protected our area, and soon the rains and snow came. Eric and Kathy celebrated their 14th wedding anniversary. The girls made us a wonderful family breakfast to celebrate.
