Celebrating Father's Day!!

Even though Father's Day was yesterday, we celebrated it on Friday and Sunday!  Friday night we attended the showing of "Courageous" movie at the Oakhurst Community Center, a night especially to encourage fathers in Godliness and leadership.  It was very successful and fun!  With door prizes, essays, the movie, popcorn and candy, and good fellowship, it made a very enjoyable evening.  Dad even gave a brief testimony!

Friday night

Yesterday, after our typical Sunday fellowship gathering, we headed over to a Lutheran church to participate in a concert that evening.  Delaney and I, along with Holly and Macy Shaw, performed "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God".  It was a lot of fun, and since we went near the beginning, we could sit back and relax for the rest of the concert!

"A Mighty Fortress"

Fathers are a huge blessing in our lives.  They are to be leaders, protectors, providers, helpers, friends and many other things.  Dads are an essential part of life.  I thank the Lord for giving me such a great Father!!

I love you Dad!!!!

OCSO concert pictures...

The OCSO concerts were So much fun!!  We performed Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights at three different churches.  The program went really well and we all played our best.

Our conductor Tim Johnson.

 The first violins.

 We got standing ovations all three nights!

Fun performance...happy girls.

Braces off!

I've had braces for just over two years, and this last Tuesday I got them off!  We had two very long days in Fresno to get everything done, and our OCSO concerts have also been going on for the past couple nights (pictures of that in the next post).  In all the business, I managed to get some before, during and after braces pictures to put up.  Here they are:
