~And to Alabama they go~

Have you ever known somebody a very short time, and known that they would somehow be in your life forever? That's what it was like with Stephanie. We met my first day at Cardiac Study Center, and just clicked. Her hysterical personality and quick wit was always entertaining, and at the same time, her drive to be GREAT at whatever she's doing was inspiring. Unfortunately for me, Stephanie just left to make the BIG move to Alabama. Her husband got into flight school (Yay Jake!) and though I'm super excited for what their life is leading to, the woman in me is sad to see a dear friend go. So, the night before they were due to leave, Josh and I drove down to Lacey to see Jake and Steph, and kiss her sweet baby James!

Teri, who also works at Cardiac Study Center, thought James might enjoy this pen... little did we know how MUCH he would love it! He was totally captivated!

I just ADORE those sweet blue eyes and those chubby little arms! I'm gonna miss playing with and holding this sweet guy while he grows up! Looks like a trip to Alabama is going to be in my future!

~Students vs. Staff~

We're so bad at this! Sorry we're so far behind!
A few weeks ago Puyallup Foursquare hosted a Students vs Staff basketball game. So just as it sounds, the Foursquare staff played against the students. Fun for us because Josh was asked to COACH the students! He of course led the students to victory, and we got a few fun pictures in the mean time! The supporters of the Staff team wore white, and the supporters of the students wore yellow. I have NEVER worn yellow, and so I actually had to go and BUY a shirt for the event!

Yoel coaching the staff!
Hanging out at 1/2 time... is it even called 1/2 time??

Even though Christina was rooting for the other team (her husband is our college age pastor Drew) we had to sit together and treat it like high school! It was a great night!
