Scenes from our Summer so far

The kids had lots of TLC time with their grandparents while we were in the D.R.

They enjoyed many field trips esp. the trips to the mall & the zoo.
"Forget the real turtles; I like this one better."

Grilling Buddies (Kempton & my dad)

Father's Day Picnic

Every Friday Morning, the students come over our house for "Overflow". It's a time to share what God has been personally showing them in the Word. What a blessing to see 13-17 yr olds rise up early on a summer morning to feast on the Word with their peers.

Sidewalk chalk writing with my kiddos.

Kissing siblings at the Wednesday Night Connections.

Every Wednesday, we attend one of our church's Wed. Night Connections. We eat dinner, sing worship songs, and hear teaching on various topics.

We spend lots of time Reading,

And Biking,

And Coloring.

This past Tuesday, approx. 65 students from the student ministry came over for "Sup-n-stuff". We had a pizza dinner, Kempton spoke, they had small group prayers, and ended the night playing games in a near by park. What a blessed night!
