June 29th-July 5th
Highlights from this week included:

*4th of July fun!

Before the 4th, I crafted up a communion meditation
for my kiddos at Woodlawn
based on the idea of the freedom we have in Christ.

Then the actual 4th was a busy day!

We started with the 'hood's parade celebration,
which includes ice cream treats
and a dunking booth for the kiddos to play in.

*Later in the afternoon we went over to the
"Gerkin Mansion"
to celebrate family birthdays
with a 4th cookout.

And IS there a better way to end a day than with

I think not!

*Got our laundry and bags ready for a week of church camp

While doing one load of laundry,
I pulled out a wet towel from the washer
in the washing machine!!!

He was very dead-
and very clean-
and very flat.

I have NO IDEA how this came to pass,
but I am wondering if our kitten Thumper
may have something to do with it...


July 6th-12th
Highlights from this week included:

*Church Camp CRAZINESS!!!

Oh, I have MISSED going to church camp!

I finally got to volunteer this Summer,
and Baby Girl and Little Wild Man
both went with me.

I want to, again, write all about this experience
in a separate blog post-
there is just too many good things to share
to list here.

But one thing I do want to mention here
is how camp helped my kiddos

They did things at camp that they never
would have tried at home.

I am so proud of them both!


There we have it-
another 5 weeks down in the books
for 2014!
