My Jr. Higher's come back tonight from being away for seven days at camp! We really miss them, and I know that the Lord was not only working in their hearts all week, but all the other kids at well! I'm excited to hear about what they have learned and to see their walk grow in the Lord! My prayer is that they come home on fire for Jesus!
While they were gone, my three youngest attended VBS at a church by our house. This is their 3rd year of going, and they always have alot of fun! It's really, REALLY nice to be able to just drop them off and pick them up! Unlike our church, I stay the entire time and serve wherever they need me. It was nice being a "face in the crowd" and being free to come and go!
I told myself (and you) that I was going to declutter a room each day while I had that 3 hour window of alone time. Well, that didn't happen! I didn't declutter anything! In fact, one of those days I took an hour nap! Ahh..bliss! It was totally the Lord that I woke up JUST IN TIME to leave to pick them up! I was still in a daze when I was driving over there!
My highlight of the week was being able to go to brunch with one of my good friends. I wish I didn't have to leave so early to pick up the kids, but it just makes me want to go to lunch with her again! She's one of those friends where we can just vent and be totally real with each other!
Now, can you believe I didn't take one single picture of my kids this week? I was officially on camera break too, so I can't take credit for the following pictures. These were taken by someone from the church. It was so neat because they had a slideshow at the end of each day, plus they posted them on their church website every night. So, since it's all out there for the world to see, I feel comfortable posting some pictures of my kids with these other kids who I don't even know!
There's Eli right in the middle with the brown shirt. This is obviously during worship!
This was Veronica's group that she was with all week! She is on the bottom left with the gray dress.
