What I Love About Drake March 2016

Scripture Verse: Peace-"Loving Father, let my children make every effort to do what leads to peace." (Rom. 14:19) &
Faith—"I pray that faith will find root and grow in my children's hearts, that by faith they may gain what has been promised to them." (Luke 17:5-6Heb. 11:1-40)

Unknown- I simply forgot to write it down when we went in for your monthly check up. I know I am a bad mother :) We will go with it is close to what is was last month and less than what it will be next month!

Things you Enjoyed: 
Celebrating your Yogi's birthday. He is officially 6 years old today and you felt he needed pampering. You let him sleep with your blanket, rubbed his belly extra long and sang him happy birthday. He was very pleased and very smug like he always is. After all he is King Yogi in his own mind. 

Your other highlight was actually playing at school. Things have been going good at school this month. No arguments, no meetings with your teacher and you are sitting with your classmates again instead of on your own. You have not had to miss any PE, recess or music and art classes at all this month which is huge for you! You have come home happy every day and I love seeing this in you! 

TLUSA: This month we had our big family get together for a meal at church. You had to cook a hot-dish and dessert to get a branch you had been working on so you made a chicken and rice hot-dish (along with 1/2 of the other boys in the troop!!!) and you made cookies. The party was fun and you earned your branch, but you wont get it till June at the Awards Ceremony. 

Generation Outdoors: This month you guys took in a basketball game and you watched the Heat and the Mavs I think. I am not 100% sure. I know your uncle Shane went with you, but you did not want him to sit with you and your mentor so he sat someplace else. You are weird like that. You like for your Uncle to go, but then leave you to do your own thing. You just like knowing someone is there, just in case. 

Church: We went this huge Easter Event this year at a neighboring church for their Pre-Easter events and you had a blast. You got pictures taken with the Easter bunny, ate breakfast with the bunny, played in the petting zoo, played trashcan pong (similar to beer pong), hunted for eggs of course, and just had a great time of running around, making friends and being a little boy that was carefree and really happy. You got to make huge bubbles with sticks and rope, which were actually pretty awesome, played l with the Easter Bunny and real bunnies all while never leaving the comfort of your pajamas. Life is good and God is great! 

The Easter Bunny is getting trickier :)
Compassion International: This month we did a event that showed what children from other places around the world lived like. Kids in 3rd world countries that live in extreme poverty and need help to get an education, food, medical care, clothing, etc. As a family we have sponsored 2 other little boys, but your sister wanted to find someone to sponsor. We went through 5 different homes from 5 different places where current children need sponsored. We all learned alot and really enjoyed the experience to see how God is using not only us, but these children from around the world.
