6th grade lifegroup

We finished our 1st year as 6th grade lifegroup leaders. Here were my girls in 2nd street. They were always willing to serve.
We had a lock-in with them last month. I got my friend Shannon to help. The girls were SO good and everyone got along. They are party animals.
Piper went with me and this is how we felt the rest of the weekend. EXHAUSTED!
My last day with this group! Love them so much! 
Beau with his group on the last day before promotion Sunday. He will be moving up with them though. He had some missing.

Middle school staff retreat

Some of the middle school leaders headed to Beaver Lake for a night to prepare for our up coming year. It was rainy and cool and such a beautiful view. We talked over our plans for the year, changes we would like to make, and our goals. It was so refreshing and reminds me of what a blessing it is to be in this ministry. Our job is to plant seeds!

Cannot believe Piper is going to be a 2nd grader and Paxton and mines first year of MDO is over! It was a great yar for us all! I couldn't believe how hard it was when my kids left. I just love them so much!

I have been having trouble with food getting stuck in my chest while I eat. It has been going on for a few years. I went to see a gastroenterologist and he suggested an EGD. I had surgery and he ended up stretching my esophogus. Not sure what all is wrong with me but I don't have cancer!
Hank & Nicole kept Paxton for me and Piper was at school. Paxton had fun with his cousin Bentley. Since I couldn't eat all day we all needed some milkshakes!

We are thankful for those that serve our country so we can eat good food at grandma Rena's and Papa Macks. The kids played in the ditch and the water hose!

Rylee's 7th birthday party

We had SO much fun at Rylee's 7th birthday party! She had it at Wheels in Motion in Van Buren and that place is so fun! We had never been there. Paxton rolled all over on the little scooter. Beau looked like the kids out there! Piper tried skating for the first time! They did the cha cha slide and watching Paxton try to do what the others was the funniest thing ever. I so wished I would have gotten a video! So cute! They had trampolines and a play are too. Thankful my daughter has lots of great friends!

Camping with friends!

We headed to Lake Wedington this last weekend for some camping. The weather was great and we had the best time. It's so much fun camping with friends! We played washers, horse shoes, swam, played volleyball, sat by the fire, and roasted s'mores. The Lord has blessed our family with some great friends!
