Last Saturday we were visiting the Grandparents and Great-Grandparents and when the weather is cooperating Connor always takes advantage of doing a little fishing! The fisherman,(or should I say fisher woman), in the family is Great-Grandma Campbell. She always has worms ready when the great-grand kids are around. Claire is all about the casting, the holding the rod, and the reeling it in, but I think you can tell from her face, she doesn't actually like the fish part of fishing. Laura is just a ham and happy to be in front of the camera!

Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation's service. Although it is observed on the last Monday in May, Memorial Day actually falls on May 30th. On that day Americans should fly their flags at half-staff until noon and pause at 3:00 to listen to taps in grateful remembrance for the fallen heroes who have sacrificed all for our nation.

Please pray for the Steven Curtis Chapman family who have lost their sweet 5 year old daughter, Maria, in a tragic accident. Maria was adopted from China and was the Chapman's 6th child and the 3rd to be adopted from China. SCC is a champion for adoption from everywhere. He advocates for children to be adopted from foster care, China, Ethiopia, Haiti, and everywhere else. Tragically, SCC's teenage son accidentally ran over Maria with a vehicle in the family driveway as she was playing. His son will need all our prayers as he copes with his added guilt and grief.
