Summer Recap

It has been a fun and busy summer and it is quickly coming to an end!  I know you've been dying to know what we have been doing so here is a picture collage recap of our summer! :)

As soon as school let out in May, we headed to Houston to watch the boys of summer play!  We were rooting for the Chicago Cubs but once again they disappointed us with a loss.  Although they lost, we really enjoyed the game.  The Astros stadium is indoors so it was quite comfortable and there was an energetic atmosphere.  It was a great way to kick off our summer of fun!

After returning from Houston, it was potato diggin' time!  My parents have quite a large vegetable farm and my kids are the happiest when they can help in the garden field!  When Papa called and said it was time to dig potatoes, we took a road trip to the farm.  The kids had a grand time playing in the dirt! :)
Potatoes taste so much better when they are fresh from the ground.  My mouth is watering now...

Catching up with friends is another highlight of our summer.  We started things off right with a visit to my best friend"s home to take a dip in the pool, have a water balloon fight and bite into a juicy watermelon!  That watermelon was so yummy that it made our eyes cross (check out Levi's silly picture)!
Friends make the summer so much sweeter!

VBS....Vacation Bible School!  I have to say that this is one of the most anticipated adventures of the summer.  VBS always takes us on an adventure through the Bible and around the world!  This year's theme was Amazing Wonders!  We journeyed to the seven wonders of the world and learned about our Awesome God and His Amazing Power.  Next year....we will be hanging on tight as we face our fears and trust God with Colossal Coaster World!  It's sure to be the time of our life!

Summer is not complete without a mission trip!  The past four summers I have left part of my heart in Brazil.  The people there are so loving and eager to hear the gospel.  This year God showed out in a huge way!  We traveled to a city that we had never worked in and over 4500 people made decisions to follow Christ!!  Next year, we will return and work along side our brothers and sisters in Christ to continue to share the gospel in Montes Claros, Brazil!  To God be the Glory!

Last week, our annual Summer Musical Activites for Kids took place.  It's an intense week of singing, drama and FUN!  The musical this year told the story of Noah and the kids did a dynamic job of telling about God's salvation through singing and acting. 

Now we are gearing up for another school year and saying goodbye to summer....until next year!
