My Daily 5

I started posting five things that I am thankful for each day on facebook as a challenge to a young man we are currently working with. I'm doing it so he has the motivation to do it too. I thought I'd post them here as well, and add pictures where I can. Although I did start my counting a while back ago, hence the reason the numbers are off...

342. Watching Elisha perform with the worship team

343. Getting organized (believe me, it's long overdue)

344. Working with Bethany on her science project and learning to let her do it herself

(it's supposed to be a heart model)

345. Quick dinners

346. Getting an awesome song stuck in my head:

Guess Who Started School Today?!

7th Grade
Age 12

6th Grade
Age 11 (almost)

Even though they pretended they weren't ready for school to start today, they certainly were excited when the day began. Bring on the 2014 - 2015 school year!

In the van

Sooo much fun!

Sadly this was Elisha's last year as a camper, as he will be thirteen before the next year. Thankfully God moved on camp this year and he (Bethany too) really stepped up and reached out to other kids in prayer. It was an awesome few days with some really great kids. I think this may have been the best one yet!

We got this crazy idea for a photoshoot (if you could call it that) and had some fun with it. 
It went from this...

and this...

to finally this...

and well, this...

It sure was fun though!
