The girls worked hard this afternoon making their Aunt Cindy a birthday cake. She has probably never had a cake baked with more love. They were proud to deliver it to her.
I am so proud of Carlos for working with the team to conduct the Truth Academy VBS program at a church in the neighboring city of Hurst this week. Praying God blesses the team's efforts this week.
What a great team of workers. Carlos makes a good looking spy!

Tonight while I was at a church workers banquet Steffinee and Samantha made cupcakes. They both love to bake and have a good time in the kitchen. They do a good job. From the frosting on Samantha's face I believe she has sampled their work!

Samantha loved every minute of her training at the Truth Academy, this year's Bible school program. Here are more pictures from the last night.
Every good agent needs an attache' case. Who knew a cereal box would make a good one?!
We have a tired agent showing off her credentials.
She told me she was hiding behind her case because she is being a secret agent.
One proud agent.
My apologies to Samantha for being a few days behind getting the end of her Bible school pictures posted. Here are some of the last night.
Time to enjoy some of Mrs. Jeri's M&M Rice Krispie Treats. What every good agent needs to replenish their energy after water training!
And speaking of water training.....
Getting lined up....
Water training 2
Getting ready to go
Grandma and camera retreated indoors and missed the slip and slide training!

One of the dreaded parts of agent training is the obstacle course and last night was the night to complete that part of the training. I heard a lot of laughter instead of moaning and groaning! The course was a lot of fun.
Getting instructions from team leaders for running the obstacle course. Agent Wilson was designated the starter.
Getting ready to go....
Starting the course...
Followed by her friend Kyleigh.
A little wobbly here....
Kyleigh's got it.
Oh no! Gotta tackle the laser alley!
Going first is trial and error...
Victory in sight!
Here comes Kyleigh.
Wow, we made it. Obstacle course complete!

Last night was the second night of Bible school and the agents are still very excited at the Truth Academy. Here are a few snapshots of the evening's activities.
All agents must have an ID. Here is Agent Wilson working on hers.
Exercise is important in agent training, even if it is trashbag volleyball!
Carlos is a great VBS helper.
Leading the boys in the memory verse. The boys won, they were louder than the girls!
I hate water but my kids and grandkids love it. Here is Samantha in a friend's pool today then her and Steffinee on their way back from a weekend of floating on the Comal River in Central Texas.

Some snapshots of the "Agents" 1st night of VBS. They had lots of fun and will make great agents of the Truth Academy.
The Mayes Family did a great job "building" the academy.
Waiting for all the "agents" to gather for their Truth lesson #1.
Agents hard at work!
Grandmother of Agent Wilson noticed agent liked working with the male agents!!
Game time - agents must stay physically fit! Samantha behind Maggie (in glasses).

Today this gang had a busy morning doing time machine travel into history with Mr. Peabody and Sherman. Came home and had pizza then a lazy afternoon. Thank you, Lindsay, for taking everyone.
Dustin, Carlos, Lindsay, and Samantha who hates having the sun in her eyes.

Carlos went to church camp last week with this crazy bunch! He is in the back row in the colorful cap. He came home really excited, said he had a great time and the services were great.
