threesixfive, days 153 thru 166

two weeks of stuff! eek! i didnt get to post last week because we were at youth camp from friday to tuesday. rather than post late when we got back and not have anyone see it really, i decided to hold off and post the last two weeks as one entry. so this will be a long one!

sunday, day 153

we went to homefield grill for lunch after church. its a local place thats fast becoming one of our favorites.

monday, day 154

VBS week at church. monday night we went out in groups and hung hangers on doors in the surrounding neighborhoods to invite everyone.

tuesday, day 155

colby lost his other middle tooth. it wasnt quite ready to come out, but he was determined. lucky me, i got to be the one to do the dirty work. ick.

wednesday, day 156

i took the kids to the pool for a couple hours. no they are not laying out. theyre drying.

thursday, day 157

katie and i went to party city to get stuff for our rec team at camp. we had to try on a few masks while we were there. molly looks a little creepy in this one.

friday, day 158

me, april, and katie at dinner friday night. our first meal at youth camp!

saturday, day 159

kayaking during free time. i love it!!

sunday, day 160

representing the green team!!

monday, day 161

its our youth groups tradition to pray over the rec team, worship band, and speaker on the last night of camp each year. they give and give for weeks, and we want to be able to give back to them a little bit.

tuesday, day 162

about to head home! on the left is the cabin our group of girls stayed in. isnt it pretty! the view....not the cabin.

wednesday, day 163

i just realized i have a picture of each of my kids with a mask on. colbys is homemade, though. and he wore it all. day.

thursday, day 164

i took colby to the dr on thursday because hes been having frequent episodes of coughing and wheezing. they started him on asthma meds (daily inhaler and rescure inhaler for attacks). the kids were laying on the floor looking under the door while we were waiting for the dr to come in.

friday, day 165

molly and colby spent a lot of thursday and friday working on allens fathers day present. it involoved many colored pencils. thats all i can disclose at this time. :-)

saturday, day 166

we went to intimate life ministries family day this afternoon. the kids got to make fathers day trophies for allen, jump in a bounce house, get 'tattoos', and have a balloon creation made. molly chose a hat.

we leave tomorrow for two weeks down at a camp near corpus. allen is the director for their two youth camps they do each year, and the weekend between the camps hes officiating a wedding (that, thankfully, happens to be in corpus, so we wont have to go far). all that said, i'll probably have to post two weeks together again, as i dont think i'll be able to post my entry next weekend.

hope youre enjoying your summer. we'll be back july 2nd, and allen has one more week away for mission trip mid-july, which i'm staying home for that one. junes been crazy. its been great, but i'm looking forward to being home for more than 4 days!

So much fun in all that busyness! But I'd desire to be home after all that time away too. Actually we have a ten day vacation coming and kids camp three weeks later. Summer will be gone before we know it.

That mask was a little creepy but the one Colby made looks like fun!

I LOVED pulling my kids teeth and all the neighborhood kids too!! yes, they would show up at my door to have me pull their teeth! :)

the view from your cabin was beautiful!!

and I thought my summer was busy...WOW!!!

See you in 2 weeks! have fun!!!


Loved your week. So much fun for summer. Camp sounds fun...enjoy it. The clear mask was a little scary. The homemade mask was a good one.

Lisa said...

Busy lady having fun! I think it takes a special person to do camps...props to you!

You look so beautiful in that first picture with the three girls.

We have a couple loose teeth in this house and I'm really hoping to not be involved in the pulling. I think Sara's comment is hilarious.

what a wonderful series of photos!

LOVED the kids drying off after swimming and I'm glad to see my kids aren't the only ones that wait for their doctor that way ;)

LOVING the homemade mask and you're right, the other one...a little creepy.

Your VBS looks wonderful! WISH we had one like that here.

Kim said...

Can certainly relate to June being a crazy month! :)
Sounds like you've had a busy but fun-filled couple weeks, with a couple more to come!
That's a gorgeous view from the cabin, too.

Your kids are so cute this week - they look so SERIOUS drying by the pool. That camp looks like a great time - I'm glad you were able to help with it.

Have fun with your next journey & we'll see you in two weeks!

I am a little late here - was on vacation last week. But when we got home we hung door hangers for our VBS too.
The camp looks great - love youth events like that.
