Our babies are now 10 weeks in the womb. The crown to rump length is almost 2½ inches. Exciting things are happening! The baby’s heart beat can be detected and then magnified for the other to hear on a special “doppler” device. Most times when a mother can hear her child’s heartbeat for the first time it is an awesome experience. Praise God!
VBS RETURNS FOR ST. JAMES
If there are any VBS items you brought that you want returned, please pick them up in Cigrand Hall sometime this week.

LISTEN TO YOUR CHILDREN
This summer, when your children are out of school and on different schedules, meeting new people and going to new places, make sure that you talk to them about their experiences and the people they’ve met. Listen carefully to your children. If possible, observe and get to know the other children and adults who are part of your children’s summertime fun. Above all, communicate your safety concerns to your children. Make sure they know that they can come to you with any concerns they may have about the people they interact with. And if you hear of or observe behaviors that may be inappropriate, make sure to communicate your feelings to people who are in a position to intervene. Communication is key to creating and maintaining a safe environment all year round.
