Welcome to my little corner of the world. I am so honored by your visit today. My name is Kristi and I am married to my college sweetheart(I refer to him here as "Mr. Incredible"), momma to my 2 beautiful girls who are growing much too quickly, a high school computer teacher, photographer, and a gardener (at times~right now I'm growing weeds). I love to laugh, drink strong Starbucks coffee, take pictures, and be anywhere my family is. Jesus is my Savior and I try so hard to be the wife and momma that He has called me to be. I often fail but He lovingly picks me up, dusts me off, and encourages me that with Him all things are possible. Feel free to join me on this journey of faith, stop in and say hello, look around, and leave a comment~I love comments. Why "Kiki's Corner?" My nephews call me Aunt Kiki and I love that too.

Our VBS Room 2010

It's been a fast and fun Vacation Bible School week. We used Lifeway's Route 254 curriculum which took us on a road trip around the country where the students learned about worship, being thankful, salvation, belief, and obedience. Our classrooms represented our campsites that we stopped in along the road trip. Mom, Rachel, Hannah, Mr. Phil (a family friend), and I had the blessing of teaching 3rd graders. Want to see our room?

Welcome to 3rd grade:

This was our entrance. Mom and Dad made this:

Dad found this great tent which fit perfectly in our room. The students LOVED it!

The "Groovy" sign and car, I made when Rachel was an 8th grade cheerleader for one of her pep rallies. We thought they were fun additions to our "road trip" theme:

Hannah and I made the tree out of brown bulletin board paper and green construction paper. We started to use fishing line to hang the branches from the tree but quickly switched to large paper clips that were much easier to poke through the paper and then clip to the ceiling frames. Of course, I hot glued the leaves to the tree. :-)

Toucan Sam liked the tree. Mom made him out of paper mache. Isn't he cool?!

My girls having a little fun:

I LOVED getting to teach the Bible stories each night and just having fun in recreation and crafts with the students. They absolutely adored my girls! A couple even asked the girls for their phone numbers....and Rachel and Hannah gave them their numbers. Isn't that cute?

One of the little girls asked me if Rachel and Hannah and I were friends. I smiled and told her that they were my daughters and yes, they were my friends too and she just smiled. It was fun to see them put together how their leaders were related. They had a hard time believing Mrs. Barbie was my mom because I am so much taller than she is and they called Hannah "Taylor Swift" all week which Hannah loved!

We will miss being there on the last night. The girls and I are taking a road trip of our own for Rachel's post-op checkup at Cook Children's Hospital. She has an MRI at 4:30 this afternoon and then we will see her neurosurgeon in the morning. Rachel is feeling so good...completely back to normal and we are so thankful. MRIs are a loud and long. If you think about her, would you please pray that she would be able to relax and possibly even go to sleep during the MRI? Have a blessed day!

What a cool classroom my friend. I want to be in 3rd grade. LOL! Okay maybe not but it sure does look like fun.
I'll be saying a prayer for dear Rachel as she has her MRI.
I know everything will be just great!
