Jerameel Is the Winner!

We finished up with another quarter of Sunday school last week. Every quarter, we do some kind of competition. This time, the kid who invited the most visitors would get 4 tickets to a zoo here in town called Parque Loro (Parrot Park). 
During this past 12 weeks of Sunday school, a new family started coming! The mom's name is Carmen and she has two girls, Jerameel and Ana Belen. They started coming about halfway through the quarter and Jerameel ended up winning the contest! 

That Saturday, they took their trip to Parque Loro. 
Since Jerameel won 4 tickets, they invited one of their little neighbor friends along with them.
Carmen is the mom, Jerameel is the tall girl in the back, Ana Belen is the one in the jean dress.  

A funny little goat
I think this is a lemur  

The Sunday after, Pastor asked Jerameel if she'd like to testify about her trip the day before, and to our surprise, she said yes!
She is the sweetest girl...we are hoping this family KEEPS coming!

We have been pretty busy lately - there's been a lot going on! I am a little behind in my blogging so if some of the next weeks' posts seem out of's because they are! I'm trying to get current, but also blog the most important stuff first, and things have gotten a little mixed up. 
I'll be blogging more about this new family next week. We've had some pretty exciting things happen so stay tuned!

Yay for a new family! It looks like Austin has grown some more - he's going to be taller than your dad before long. And I think it's a lemur, not a meerkat :)

@Sis. McElhaney - he is growing sooo much! He is taller than I am! And I agree, he is definitely going to be taller than my dad. He's going to be the FIRST TALL WAKEFIELD! Hehe!

And thank you for the correction on the meerkat/lemur. I really didn't have any idea and Nicole guessed meerkat.

I'm a bit of an animal nerd! Leave me at a zoo and I'll be fascinated for hours.
