After 8 months of confirmation lessons, working with his mentor and doing daily devotions Ian got confirmed on Sunday, May 13. It was a huge accomplishment and I'm very proud of him.
They had a slideshow with a slide for each confirmand showing highlights from the year.

After church everyone came back to our house for a brunch and celebration.
Cara tried riding a tricycle for the first time two weekends ago. She didn't quite get it, but she was very determined and didn't give up!
Cara's favorite activity is her Friday music class. Here she is playing with the parachute.
Listening to Miss Laura.
Getting her stamp. The best part!
Nana got to go to music class during her visit.

On Saturday I ran my second half marathon and got a personal record by 4 minutes! Tim ran the 10K and did awesome- he came in 11th in his division out of 122!
Mom, Dad and Katie brought the kids over to watch the race. It was great running weather, but that means cold for spectators. Here are the girls in the stands of Memorial Stadium.
Ian showing his support.
Tim and I after the race. Obviously, the coolest runners EVER!
I hope these links work...
