A "Blessed Talent" Night
A few weeks ago, we had a "Blessed Talent" night and a wonderful evening of fellowship with Joshua, Hannah, and Lily and the Bender family. It was great!!
The Harris' brought us the beautiful flowers!
Hannah and I cutting (or rather scooping) watermelon. Thank you Benders for bringing it - it was delicious!!!

Getting ready to start - Thaddeus loves "b"-balls"!!! :)
Stasia did a lovely poem "Being Thankful"
Benjamin recited the Mayflower Compact
Hannah read a lovely poem that she wrote for the mothers
Even Shenandoah did something!!! She recited Genesis 1:1

Joshua sang while Hannah accompanied him
Daddy surprised us by memorizing "Casey at the Bat"
Enjoying the delicious pudding that the Harris' brought!
It was a great evening of fellowship
I was a second too late in getting a picture of daddy and Benjamin playing the piano. When I asked them to pose for me again, this is what I got!! Ha ha...
All tuckered out
The Benders ended up staying the night! Here are a couple pictures from the next morning
Seth and Tabitha
Reading books together - isn't that cute?!
