We did complete our first of four Vacation Bible Schools this past month (June). I will be posting pictures at the end of the Summer from each of the Bible Schools; but didn't want to post them until they were all complete since we're using the same theme for all of them. Our theme this year is "Living the Sweet Life" using candy and Candy Land to get across the message that Jesus can make us and KEEP us sweet!! Here's a hint... I used the Candy bars: Butterfinger, Sweet Tarts, Mr GoodBar, Almond Joy & Pay Day. More info will follow at the end of the Summer but just wanted to let you all know what we are up to this summer!

I know...I know...Father's Day was a couple of weeks ago! But...I didn't get a chance to put this post on here until now, so I figured it was better late than never! Besides, who said we can only celebrate our Father's once a year?! ;0) However, we did want to express our love and gratitude to our wonderful dads! We have the best that there is, and we wanted them to know we love and appreciate all they have done for us.
Around Christmas time, the LaVan side of our family had a family photo taken. We never did get a good one of the Davis Clan since it's hard to get us all together at once. So... recently the opportunity arose for all of us to be together at once! Very unusual with our growing brood, so we took advantage of it and FINALLY got our picture together! :0) As you will notice, we have a new addition to our family! Elizabeth Whitaker will soon be an "official" part of the Davis clan when she and Jerry get married in October! :0) We're looking forward to having her in our family, and already feel as if she has been one of us forever.
For our Spring Revival this year, my parents came and did the preaching and singing. We had a good revival. While they were here we also took advantage of the rare time together to see some of the local sights. We visited Lester Manor and Bass Pro Shop among all the regular places.
