This year we have been learning about the fruit of the Spirit. In the lesson about gentleness we learned that being gentle does not mean you are weak, but that God's Spirit in us helps us to treat others in a caring way. Knowing how to be a true gentleman will get the boys far in life.
We also looked at Rules to Being a Gentleman: say "please and thankyou" ~ work hard ~ be humble ~ look people in the eye ~ open the door for a lady ~ offer your seat to others ~ love well ~ stand up tall and straight ~ offer a firm handshake ~ mind your manners ~ be punctual ~ respect your elders.
And here are a few shots of our little gentlemen...
Congratulations to Wes and Serena who received the most votes in our Date Night Challenge!
Thanks for being such good sports and for creating such a fun video. We would like to thank all 12 couples for participating and for bringing smiles to our faces as we read your posts each week. We have enjoyed seeing the fun and creative ways you carve out time for each other.
And once again, we are so thankful for the generosity of the Summerland Waterfront Resort for donating the prize of a one night stay at their beautiful resort. The winners will also be receiving a $75 gift card to the restaurant of their choice.
And if you're wanting one last look at Wes and Serena's video, here it is!
Thanks to all 12 couples who rose to the challenge and planned a date night, kept to a $25 budget and shared the night with us readers! They were so much fun to read and inspired the rest of us (who didn't put ourselves out there but could very well use a date night in our lives) to carve out time for each other and to enjoy this beautiful place that is our home.

Back in January, 12 couples bravely accepted our Date Night Blog Challenge. Their challenge was to plan a fun and creative date night that kept within a $25 budget. They also had to commit to blogging about it on our SBC Blog. It appears that each couple had tons of fun in the process and we know you will have a lot of fun reading their posts! After we have posted all 12 date nights, readers will have the opportunity to vote for their favourite. The winning couple will receive a night at the Summerland Waterfront Resort and a $75 gift card to the restaurant of their choice.
Thanks to each couple who braved the challenge and put time, effort and creativity into their date. We hope the following posts will inspire you to get creative and plan your own special date night and enjoy the beautiful place we live.
We also want to express our sincere thanks to the Summerland Waterfront Resort for donating the prize of a one night stay at their beautiful resort.
Date Night #12: The Smiths
Just the 2 of us! We had a relaxing and wonderful date night at the Canadian Grill in Penticton. We sat back and enjoyed a meatloaf supper with all the fixings. After supper we headed off to McDonalds for a enjoyable coffee and hot apple pie. Then to end it off we had a refreshing stroll hand in hand along the beach.
Love and laughter,
Theresa and Ronald Smith
