Really ~ a little bit of everything

The days have passed and during this time we've had ups and downs and are beginning a new phase of life. The month of May found us getting ready for Vacation Bible School at church. The team came together and all the leader slots were filled and in June the week was here and it was great. Our new pastor used one of his many talents by leading the children in worship each day - it was awesome. Our new youth pastor led the 5th and 6th graders and they had a great week. And missions came back in full force and the children responded well. The whole team worked together to make for a great week. I can't wait until next year. As the VBS week came to an end so did the life of a family member ~ he fought a good fight and died a peaceful death. His family was with him and soon the whole family would be together to celebrate the end of a life here on earth and the beginning of a new life in heaven with Jesus. The big girls were very sad and cried many tears and the little girl kept praying for her Papaw to get better and come back. In July, Mamaw came and visited with us for a week and she will be able to do that again soon. The girls really enjoyed having Mamaw to play with whenever they wanted ~ especially the little girl. She wanted her all to herself whenever possible. Later in July, our big girl went to church camp with her very dear friend and they had a great time and we will never ask her to call home again! And our middle girl went to back handspring class for 3 days and is flipping forward and backward now! The trampoline is her practice field. And our church has filled another slot - a great young man and his lovely family led us in worship yesterday and it was awesome. I look so forward to August 10 when he begins his new journey at Capshaw.
