Fun times!

Yesterday morning and afternoon, Leah and I had the opportunity to watch two young girls, ages 5 and 2 for their mother. We had such a wonderful time!

Walking down our driveway to get the mail.

The girls loved picking flowers from our flower gardens, and as you can see, they made some beautiful little bouquets!

The littlest one especially liked the daisy's

In addition to spending time outdoors going for walks and picking flowers, we also had fun indoors making chocolate chip cookies together and reading books . . . such special times! :)

Girls Group

Girl's group went very well today even though our plans changed due to the rain. We also had a smaller group as several of the girls were unable to make it. We spent quite a bit of time reviewing and I was encouraged to see how much the girls were able to recall. Even remembering the woman's name in Scripture who "was abounding with deeds of kindness and charity which she continually did" (Acts 9:36). I was also very blessed to see that they are realizing how to apply what they learn to their lives.

Here are some photos from our day:
