The missing blue scooter

Just wanted to share something that happened recently. Savannah left her blue razor scooter at the front door one day after a walk. I told her to bring it in the garage but she did not. That night I heard some noise, like the scooter was being moved. I opened the front door thinking Kauai was coming home and moving the scooter. I did not see him out front and heard the scooter noise off down a pathway by my house. I knew then that someone was stealing the scooter. I yelled out at them saying they must stop and bring the scooter back. "You are stealing and that is wrong, bring it back right now. I will go in the house and close the door so you can bring it back. Do the right thing." I said. Well, they never brought it back. I told Savannah and she cried. I then told her that we should pray for the person who stole it. Pray that they will feel bad and bring it back to us. Well, over the next week, we prayed for the person and the scooter. Six days after the incident, I decided to take a walk and felt I should walk by a park by our house. I was thinking on my way over about the scooter and how I was sad that savannah would not have it for our walks. Just as I rounded the corner to the park, I saw the blue scooter stashed in a bush by the park. I just about cried! Wow, what a blessing. I feel and know that this is a direct answer to our prayers. What a great thing to know that God answers our prayers!

Summer fun

Just trying to catch up on pics for my blog. We had a great visit with my dad and shari in Utah. We went to the dinosaur museum, to the lake, the cabin, the zoo and other fun activities. The girls played with cousins they don't get to see very often. We also got to see great grandparents, Don and Dorothy Forshee that live in St George Utah.

Can I do this blogging thing?

Hey, I hope this works. This is my first attempt at adding a post to my new blog. I am totally new at this blogging stuff but I guess you just aren't cool if you don't have a blog! No, I just thought I should journal what is going on with the family and share with our extended family and friends. This is our youngest, rebekah Mansur born 2/12/08 on my brother John's bday (how cool is that!). I hope to share some history and back archived pics to catch this family up to date. Look for more to come!
