October 27th-29th, 2011

Thursday, October 27th, Ashlyn won the Fruit of the Spirit Award for Joy...same one she got last year, which tells you something!  Mrs. Hutchinson said that the deciding factor for her was when she was walking to recess one day and she was dancing as she was walking and singing Holy, Holy.  We are so proud of her for bringing joy to others as she has brought to us.

Friday, October 28th was the Fall Fest at Calvary Chapel of Melbourne.  We put our car into the Trunk or Treat at the Fall Fest as a 70s disco type theme.  I wore a flower child dress and vest and looked like a hippy (sorry, hubby wasn't there to take pics).  Kaylyn dressed up as a Hollywood Movie Star and Ashlyn dressed up as an Asian Princess (both their choosing).  Jason got stuck at Jury Duty until 7:30 pm, so I was stuck by myself with the car and the girls.  I missed the girls singing for the kid's choir, so I did not get pictures of this :-( but my friend filmed it so that I could see it at a later date.  It rained the entire time, but there was still a lot of people that came out...amazing!  We got home at 10:00 pm that night.

Saturday, October 29th, Kaylyn and Ashlyn had their final Championship swim meet in Cocoa Beach at 8:00 about tired!  And guess what, still raining!  It rained the entire swim meet until it was time to go at noon.  Then we had to get Kaylyn to her first volleyball game that started at 1:00 pm.  We quickly ate lunch at McDonalds and then headed to the game.  We got there at 1:00 and luckily they warmed up for about 15 minutes so we weren't pushing the limits.  It was best 2/3, but we only got to play 2 since we lost both.  We got better the 2nd round though and it seemed like they were starting to get in a groove.  We have some very talented players on the team.  I think Kaylyn and I will need to practice since I'm playing volleyball with some co-workers during the week and I need the practice too.

With Friday night and Saturday, we are all very exhausted!  We are going to church tonight and hopefully will get to sleep in tomorrow, which is much needed!


  1. Oh my gosh, I'm so excited!!! You guys are both playing volleyball?!?!?! That must mean you need to make a trip over to see Aunt Kara so she can help coach you guys!!! Kaylyn is SO perfect for it!! YAY!! There's a guy that plays with his nephew in one of our leagues and I told Chris how cool would that be if I could play with Kaylyn one day! :-D

    I'm not surprised AT ALL that Ashlyn won the award for Joy. I can't imagine a happier, more joyful little girl than Ashlyn!

    And next time, tell Kaylyn how to use your camera and make her take a picture. I wanted to see! The pilot looked pretty groovy though - hehe!

    Love you guys! Can't wait to see all of you next month!

  2. Awesome on the fruit award. Of course, I'm partial to that particular one. :)
