We Covingtons indoctrinate them young... :)
"Take me out to the ballgame, (thanks Grandpa!)
Take me out with the crowd. (we met some really nice people sitting behind us as well as Gpa's friend)
Buy me some peanuts and crackerjacks, (no thanks, I'll stick to raisins and goldfish)
I don't care if we ever get back! (as long as I'm with all of you!)
Let me root, root, root for the DODGERS! (although Dad thinks they're only the 2nd best team...)
If they don't win it's a shame! (I guess tonight's game falls into the 'shame' category)
For it's 1...2...3 strikes, you're out (yup... lots of those)
At the old...ball...game!!" (these funny people sure do like this song!)
thursday, may 21...
those are boxers around my daughter's neck...
her uncle's old hole-y (& clean) boxers actually...
and yes, she is wearing them like a toga...
i don't know what to say except that things get a little crazy when the covingtons come to visit... :)

Sunday, May 17th.
This is our lifegroup. What is a lifegroup? Good question... :) They're our Bible study group, but more than that, they're our friends, and they act as our family away from home.
Tonight we hung out at John and Kelley's in order to say goodbye to Jamie and Jenny who are leaving in a couple weeks to spend a year working in ministry in Haiti. It was a good time of fellowship and a chance to hear from the Groens and pray for them before they leave. (It was also the night that a 5.0 earthquake rumbled through. Yikes! Maybe we should go to Haiti too!)
We are excited to see what God will do through our dear friends, but we'll miss them terribly while they're gone!
I took a personal day today, sent Em to Kathy's and spent a wonderfully relaxing day at the Huntington Library with Peter. It was absolutely beautiful and made me ache for summer... it's so close!!
In honor of such a fantastic day (or because I left my camera in the car all week) I'll post some of my pictures from today, for the rest of the week :) enjoy!
I had a wonderful mother's day. Pete (ahem, emily...) carried on the tradition of breakfast in bed and then had the whole day planned for me. After church we went on an adventure up to the Children's Museum in Pasadena where they had special mother's day activities. We had a great time, but I think it'll be even better when Em's another year older and can really do all the different things. The 3 pictures for today are at the museum. I wish I'd have thought to take a better picture of us... oh well :)
I'm so sad that these are the only 2 photos I took tonight. :( I hosted the Annual VCS Music Faculty Dinner at our house and we had a lot of fun.
I borrowed some tables and chairs, we grilled chicken and had some pasta and fruit salads, fresh green beans and more with ice cream sundaes for dessert. The kids played, the adults talked, and Nathan and Lenee stayed for some late night "Rock Band" in the garage :) Despite the face she's making in the picture above, Em had a good time playing with Chloe, but she was definitely ready for bed after (most) everyone left.
I love my Wednesdays this year. The middle school has chapel after lunch on Wednesday which means a couple of great things for me:
1. An extra long lunch period so I can often run home and play outside with Emma,
2. I only teach one class in the afternoon, and
3. I get to go to chapel with the MS kiddos :)

Saturday, May 2nd.
We went to our first Dodgers game of the season and saw an amazing game with Paul and Laura! Again, since Laura had her camera I didn't bring mine... now I just have to find a way to get those photos from her :) In the meantime, here's another photo from around the house. (Not exciting, I know, but some days are like that, right?) :)
