Project 365: Week 6

Poor car! The fuel pump went out, leaving us high and dry, without a registered, running car.

Once a month, my Bible study group takes lunch and an activity to a very special private school. This school provides a free, Christian education to children with special needs that come from impoverished families. This month we took pizza and told them the story of Easter using FamilyLife's Resurrection Eggs. I love these precious kids.

My husband is incredible! He replaced the fuel pump, fuel filter, spark plugs, and plug wires in the Windstar. Alas, 3 days later, the Windstar lost its cruise control, and a day later, the transmission said KA-THUNK. Later this week the poor, old Windstar will leave us for the salvage yard. We are now immediately in the market for a new(er) car.

Our car was not the only sick member of our family this week. Fortunately for me, it was a 24-hour bug.

After a rough week, we needed some fresh air and relaxing, so we went to the beach. Pepper learned how to ride the small waves on his boogie board!

My gift to my friend Tracie's son for his first birthday was photographing his birthday party. Man, does this kid know the right way to eat cake!

Snapper and her best bud DD are great helpers with DD's little sister. She loves the big kids!

what's the school called that you guys go to? I have a good friend in FL and His dream is to open a school similar to the one you speak of.
