A Man's Job

Today John volunteered to help me wash the dishes. Aww, isn't that so sweet of him?! :)

Something about boys and the water intriguing! :)

With our family there always seems to be a never-ending stack of dishes

...and I will wipe Jerusalem as a man wipeth a dish, wiping it, and turning upside down.

Yesterday afternoon our nephew/ 1st cousin, Daniel Markow married Miss Stephanie Arcoraci. Our whole family is excited to have Stephanie officially as our cousin!! :)

Susan, Jennifer and Amy played the music for the ceremony on the keyboard, harp and flute

Stephanie's father who is an Anglo-Catholic priest married them.

The beautiful and happy bride!

Baby Mark will be six months old soon. He is nine pounds, 13 ounces now. He still needs prayer for his heart condition but is doing well for his adjusted age.

Weekend's Activities

This week has been filled with new adventures in the Stinnett house. With John's surgery coming up mom has been kept busy with phones calls and doing the "next thing". We appreciate all the love and concern everyone has expressed on his behalf. Your prayers are truly a blessing!
Saturday, we went to the western side of Maryland to hear Jeffery Reid's senior recital. He did an excellent job performing beautiful piano pieces and a dramatic interpretation of God's Smuggler-Brother Andrew. His brothers later joined him for a jolly time of mountain medleys and songs! Unfortunately, we brought a dead camera with us so we didn't get to take any pictures.

Since today was the third Sunday of the month, we as a church went to a local nursing home for an afternoon service.

Queen Anne's County Fair

Each year we all look forward to the 4-H County Fair. It always seems to fall on the hottest week of the year so one of our favorite food stands is the ice cream! Yum! We also had fun watching our friends show their animals and win ribbons.
