For those who have been praying for Elijah's ear infections, God is touching Him. He is improving! Thank the Lord, and y'all for praying!

~On October 25th we had a service in Rapid City, SD and got to meet the Woodard family. Our kids enjoyed being with theirs.~~Thank you, Woodards, for the nice stay at your home, the yummy meals, and the use of lots of your water! (Inside joke!) =D It was great meeting y'all!
~The Woodards loaned us their van to drive up and see Mt. Rushmore! You see my Daddy used to pastor in Oelrichs, SD which was only about 70 mins. away from Mt. Rushmore. When Phillip came home with me on our GBS Spring break, he brought me on a picnic and asked me to marry him only 10 mins. from Mt. Rushmore! So, this mountain holds a lot of memories for us! It was fun coming back with our children.~
~We drove around trying to find the exact spot wher he asked me, but due to a time frame we never could find the right place. After we came back to the Woodards, we decided that it must have been on a different road that we would've had to pay to go on. So, we had Kimberly snap this picture of us. If you had a magnifying glass you could see that Mt. Rushmore is in the background just to the left of my shoulder. The peak we and Kimberly were standing on was only a few feet wide, so Kimberly had to get a "fish photo" of us, (a super close photo!) 'cause if she would have backed up any further, she would have fallen over the side. =(
~The neat South Dakota Bad Lands!~
~We let our kids get out and do some climbing on the bad lands, which they thoroughly enjoyed!~
~Little Elijah thought that it wasn't fair 'cause he couldn't climb as high as his brother and sisters. =)~
~It was such a delight to be with the Ron Arnolds and KennethBryants again!~
~We ladies enjoyed a yummy breakfast and coffee out together.~
~Kimberly and Sarah enjoyed seeing Olivia again.~
~My good friends Ashlea, and Clarrisa. (I got to be with their sister Julianna at the tea room in AZ in Sep./Oct.)~
~We held a service at the Faith Missionary Church in Mitchell, SD where Bro. Winfield Poe and his wife are pastoring. It was nice to see them again. We've known them since we were younger.~
