Amazing Spring

So this spring has been a wonderful time here in the Gipe household. Addie-Mei and I were a part of a wonderful play about the life of Jesus that our choir director had written, Behold the Lamb. It was the 20th anniversary of this play. Amazing experience, great friendships built and the Word of the Lord was proclaimed!
We had my two sisters and one of my nephews come to visit as well this spring. We had a great time together, even though I got a bad case of food poisoning. We went to visit the Creation Museum in Cincinnati. It was a great trip and we all had a wonderful time.
We also had some dear friends come down to build a quilt in less than 36 hours. We worked hard, the kids played hard, and it is now done. Brenda is my friend who went with me to China to adopt Addie-Mei.
Now we are coasting to the end of another year. Addie-Mei will finish Kindergarten and officially be a 1st grader. I can't believe she is going to be in school all day, every day. She is getting so big. She continues to melt my heart with her sweet spirit and her sweet smile. I thank God everyday that He gave me the privilege of raising this precious child. She is such a blessing.
