Marvelous Monday!!

Round #1 8am
Natalie & Tristin's 1st day of School 2008

Round #2 11:30am
Lola's first day of Kindergarten 2008

First off....some Thompson family news!

Today is the first day back to school. It is always bitter/sweet for me to watch them get on the big ol' yellow bus and drive away. I miss them and the house seems too quiet...though as I type this Kolton is throwing a big screaming fuss behind me. =) They were so excited to go and I am looking forward to them coming home. As they anxiously looked down the road for the bus this morning, I anxiously will be looking down the road this afternoon ready to hear all the fun details of the day. As I told Laura this's good for all of us to be apart, but I'm looking forward to their return. Gosh, I'm going on like they are miles away from me and it's going to be days until I see them, when actually they are just a few blocks away for 7 1/2 hours. I'll be excuses NOT to get my work done today!
Second...the BbB giveaway GIVEAWAY!
I want to thank all of you who took the time to enter this week. Our hearts were caught by each and every comment! We are thinking maybe will do this the first of every month. It not only gives you the chance to give, but gives all of us more people and situations to pray about. Thank you! I feel this was one of the best giveaways ever!! So the winner......

I would choose to give this lamb to Noah and Julie Roberts, parents of Magdalena Grace who has Trisomy 18. She has been with them for about 4 weeks, every day they are sharing with her is a blessing. I do not know them personally but I am sure they would love this lamb for their daughter.
Thank you Jen for thinking of little Magdalena!
Well...I'm off to get to work! I hope everyone has a wonderful week!! ~Tina

My name is Lori and I am Magdalena's aunt (Julie's sister). Julie called me this afternoon and told me about your wonderful ministry and that someone had entered Magdalena's name to win one of your lambs. Thank you so much for to both Jen and yourself for being such an encouragement to them today. If you would like to know more about Magdalena, you can check out their blog at
