Reciting Love

  • Besides a normal week last week, I had the privilege of arranging a surprise outing for a neighbor girl. I asked two of my girlfriends to take her back-to-school shopping for clothes while I babysat. It went well ;) After pizza/movie night, we took the kids outside to do some star-gazing with the free, awesome Starview app -- a fun memory! On Father's Day, we went to church, made a pound cake, and enjoyed Aolani's kindergarten recital and reception (3 out of 5 girls invited came) -- more info and video below.
 Micaiah set-up his "recipe books" to look at while cooking ;)

Aolani officiates her first wedding (between Micaiah and their friend Ellie)
  • Aolani's Kindergarten Poetry and Scripture Recital -- I told Aolani beforehand that it is perfectly fine to make mistakes, just look at people in the eye, speak clearly and smile plenty! Those things will cover over and redeem any mistakes. And, she must have remembered that because her joy and enthusiasm are off the charts and so contagious! They definitely made it a sweet and beautiful memory :)
  • We are taking a break from memorizing a verse for Aolani this week but will do a few verses during summer break starting next week.
  • Verse to memorize this week: 2 Corinthians 4:10  We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body.
