It's been quite a while, so there are probably a few things I should catch you up on.
On April 11 Nathan turned 12. That's just crazy. Ken and I took him out to dinner and then bought him a bow. He is interested in archery, so we're getting him started. Could be fun! (Or dangerous?)
Later in April Kriss and I took a group of teenagers to Billings for a conference. WAAAAYYY out of my comfort zone, but fun! We heard some great messages and got to meet Among the Thirsty. They perform my current favorite song, Completely. Take a listen - it's awesome! Here is a picture of our crew with Among the Thirsty.
Dad and Michael came for a visit in April, too. We always enjoy a couple days with them.
In May we had an end-of-the-school-year party. Games, food, fun!
May is also the month for our first camping trip of the season! This year our first trip was to Bass Creek. We love it there. We sat under our extensive canopy, did some hiking, poked the campfire (a LOT!)...it was great!
|This is Gavin's favorite place when we're camping. Crazy boy.|
On June 1 Austin turned 16! Man - these kids are getting old fast!! We went to the Hub in Missoula to celebrate (a few days late).
Gavin had a birthday in here, too. He's 4 years old now! Zowie howie! How did that happen?
Late June brought us to one more camping trip - this time to Salmon Lake north of Missoula. Another great time!
On July 7 Ken, Kriss and I left on vacation. Kriss was headed to Uganda for a month long mission trip, and she was flying out of Seattle, so we sent her off and Ken and I spent a week at our favorite campground.
Ken and I were also able to go to a vintage trailer rally while we were in western Washington. So fun! I'll share more about that on Jemimah's blog soon.
Now we're back home and gearing up for a few more activities - our church is having a big party this Sunday that I am organizing. After that is our town's annual festival - Creamery Picnic. That's fun, but busy for us because Ken is on the planning board. It will be a great time, though. Basically, we're on a rapid run right up to the beginning of the new school year. Whew! What a busy summer! Thanks for checking out our update!
