I love that picture with Bella and me! I have her picture from two year's ago sitting in this same spot hanging on the wall in my office. It's amazing how much changes in a little girls life in such a short time. Now we have a similar picture of Serenity to add to the bunch! There are too many pictures to clutter up this Blog with, so I made some albums and have shared the links below. Just click on them and discover a world of cute and fantastic fun.
Diane worked tirelessly to make Asher's costume this year. She was up well after midnight several nights sewing it together, taking it apart and starting again! He was thrilled and the boys had so much fun at their schools Fall Carnival and then the next day at our Church's Fall Festival.
MK: Fall Festival 2016
My church again asked the MK group if they would help with their Fall Festival this year and the group showed up in force. My church was so grateful and it was so cool to be able to serve the Body that has served my family so well over the years. We truly are a wonderful community and it blesses me when we live in harmony... like oil running down my luxurious red beard. :) Anyway, this year we had several of the college age MKs join us along with a couple parents. It was a great time. Afterwards we went to my house and watched "Meet the Robinsons". We projected it in my driveway and ate copious quantities of candy.
I love doing a talent show in my Youth Group. This year we scheduled it for Halloween and it was again a fantastic evening. We have some incredible musicians and artists in our group and it is so fun and surprising to see the hidden talents that surface at events like this!
I just had to include this picture because it just makes me laugh. I believe it was Asher who chewed his delicious paleo pancake into the shape of a bat. Yeah I think they were in the Fall Festival spirit a little while before it got here :).
Work is going well and family is going well! I finally feel like I'm getting back into a routine and have my feet under me again. It is nice to get back to reading and growing and preparing lessons for the future. I have my tickets for Thailand and my dates are set!
Speaking of Thailand, we are also preparing for our Jamaica trip this coming summer! I'm excited to get back to the island and to lead the trip for the first time. I'm so grateful for Bob Alber's help in planning and preparing and mentoring me into readiness for this opportunity.
I'm speaking in Chapel on Friday. Pray that I'm a good mouthpiece for the Lord's truth!
For funding for all these trips! Thailand will cost $2500.
For new supporters!
For good health and a time of returning to routine!
