A Glimpse of the Baptism.....

Remember Us?

Just so you don't forget what we look is a picture of us at Family Camp last week. I have so much to say (blog about) but can't quite find the time to sit down and write it all out. I want to tell you all about my baptism. I want to tell you all about Family Camp. So...those things are coming. For now...we are heading to Lake Michigan to see some more friends that we traveled to China with. Of course, more on that later too!
Have a wonderful Wednesday!!

Don't be fooled!

Today is Thursday. On Tuesday, this cute little girl got lipgloss on my white comforter. On Wednesday, she poured an entire bottle of hand soap in the sink. And today, she spilled pink fingernail polish on her sister's comforter. So...don't let all of this cuteness fool you!
I wonder what tomorrow holds....

Gratefully Overwhelmed!

I cannot begin to tell you how grateful I am to homeschool friends in our area!!
These are most all of the books that Graham and Grace will be using this next school year....and I didn't have to buy any of them!! Thank you, Lord, for blessing us with friends that desire to teach their kids at home and then share their blessings with others.
We are so grateful!

In Case You Are In Need Of A Good Laugh....

There's just no limit for what we will do for something fried, something sweet, and something FREE!!

Our kids even got some of their friends from church to join them in the fun!

And here is Mike with one of his co-workers from Life Action, Jeff! How fun!!

2 out of 9

Last week I found out through Facebook that one of the eight families we traveled to China with was going to be in our area for a wedding. This was obviously a special treat....because this family lives in Albany, NY and came to the very small town of Niles, MI for a wedding. Once we realized how close they were going to be to us...we had to make plans! We met them Saturday night at the beach for some ice cream and the sunset. It was a perfect evening! It was also such a blessing for Sarah Joy to spend some time with one of her "sisters" from Jiangxi. Aren't these two out of the nine just the sweetest?

Wordless Wednesday

Where does the time go????

Last weekend we celebrated the 4th of July in Ohio at America's largest indoor waterpark

Here it is....Kalahari Resort! you can tell by the photos, we have been enjoying every second of this summer...almost like we know what is coming next..ha! I do enjoy the fall here in the north, but the summer is surely my favorite!!

On a more "spiritual" note....God continues to bless our church! We are still hosting small group in our house every week (and we had two new couples join us this week! yeah!) This is the time of year that Mike is busy at work getting everything lined up for the new road team members. He has to make sure all of their support and insurance stuff and other paperwork is all ready for them to hit the road in August. We are working on getting a support newsletter out within the next week or so. Lots of great things happening within the ministry and within our church!! Thank you for praying for us!

And this is the time of year that my mind is wrapped up in homeschool stuff.....curriculum choices, organization of our time, goals for the year, etc....all of that just gets me so excited about the next school year (6th grade for Graham and 2nd grade for Grace! yikes!)

Have a wonderful week!
