Summer Time

As you can see, I updated my blog with some of our new pics.  I will do a whole post soon with the pics from our family photos.  I just want to get my blog updated first.  June feels like a blur.  We have several celebrations in June that I will blog individually.  These are some of the other activities we did this month.
Our church had a Family BBQ to fundraise for the missions' trips this summer
 The set up was great
 The weather, not so much!
 It was a cold windy day, 
 but it was still a great opportunity for the team to raise money for our trip and serve the church
 We celebrated Sam's spiritual bday
 with a dinner of smoked sausage, Pioneer Woman mac n' cheese, green beans and crescent rolls
 Sam got a journal as his gift,
This boy has a sensitivity to the things of God that is well beyond his years.  We pray that as he grows in his walk with the Lord, He will continue to seek Him with all his heart!!
 and of course, we had ice cream sundaes!!
 Ms. Julie was in town for a visit.  We got to spend several hours with her one afternoon!
 Isaiah did soccer camp again this year
 It is always fun to be with friends
 Mrs. Mandy teaches them about soccer
 and God.  Lauren was a helper again
 We love Mrs. Mandy!!
 The Whole Crew
 Our church had a work day.  Isaiah helped me pull weeds
 Laila helped, too
 Rick doing the weed eater
 covered in grass
 Cody and Abby are pulling weeds, too.  Lauren helped, too, but she escaped the pictures.
 Ms. Holly took a skirt I bought in Swaziland and made it into a dress for Laila.  It turned out great!!  I love it that Laila has some clothing in fabrics from Swaziland.  Thank you, Holly!!  I decided a long time ago that I was not going to learn to sew.  I am thankful that I have friends who do!!
 These 3 did VBS at church last week. 
The theme was Weird Animals
 I got Sam a neck pillow for our Africa trip.  He called me into his room and said, "Look, Mom, I am a toilet seat!"  That boy!
I celebrated my 42nd bday on June 12.  We woke up that morning to really yucky weather.  It was chilly and rainy all day.  Rick got me the cake I was wanting, Chocolate Mousse Cake!

 Look at that yumminess!
 The kids decorated and gave me some fabulous gifts!
Rick took me out for a date night!  We went to a movie and out for Mexican food for dinner!!
