The young girls at church participate in a Tabitha class, after the Bible character Tabitha (Dorcas). You will find her story in the book of Acts, chapter 9 verses 36 to 42. Although there is not a great deal told about her, the little that is said is enough to show that she was a godly woman who was loved and respected in the Christian community of Joppa. We do know that she was well known for doing good and for helping the poor.
The purpose of the girl's class is to teach them how to do good to others and how to serve other people. Part of the class includes a friendship program, where the girls are matched up with a lady from the congregation. Last year Abigail was matched up with a new member and couldn't remember her name. This year Abigail took her camera along, so she wouldn't forget who her 'friend' was. And of course it was Ms. Tami! Someone she knows very well!
Baylor was matched up with Ms. Angela! At the end of the program the girls and their 'friends' will have a lovely tea!

Another birthday, more photos of our 'birthday breakfast in bed.' The girls have a trundle bed in their room which makes it easier for all five of us and Padme' to fit! Frankie's breakfast of choice was pancakes, sausage and chocolate milk. While eating her breakfast in bed she opened her cards and gifts. Several of the gifts were new clothes, so we followed breakfast with a fashion show. The little kids and Padme' grew a little impatient with the costume changes, as evident by thier napping!!! Later in the day Frankie got to pick where we went bike riding, which princess movie we watched and what puzzle we put together, Little Mermaid!

I had plans for yard work and all sort of productivity when Carina called and invited us to a matinee! What a no brainer! We watched Clone Wars, well we watched all but the last 5 minutes of Clone Wars when the projector bulb broke. The theater gave us a refund. Following the moving we checked out the new Lego store in the mall. The Taj Mahal and Eiffel Tower caught my eye, always the educator!
