Fall Is In The Air

My last post was just before summer began, and here I am...almost Fall! Such a poor blogger. Oh well, lets talk about what has kept us busy this summer. I spent the last few weeks of June painting farm animals and fruit and vegetables for VBS scenery.
Our youth group left July 10th for Hamlet, NC. I tagged along as a chaperone. We knocked doors, sang and put on puppet shows for local daycares, sang at a nursing home, and put on a 4 night VBS. We met so many wonderful people. It was a great mission trip, and I feel so blessed to have been a part of it. Singing and puppet shows.Visiting a training center for Special Forces. Cool!Hayden with a turtle.

We left Thursday heading home and stopped in Stone Mtn., GA. We played a while and watched the laser show. I LOVE the laser show. It always brings a tear to my eye. So patriotic. Finally at home on Friday to start VBS preparation. Many, many hours put in here...but always worth the outcome.
Hayden had surgery on the 19th and was down for about a week. The Cantrells visited on the 24th. We had such a good visit. A picture speaks a thousand words. Love this!

VBS was the 25th through the 29th and then school started back on my birthday, August 9th. Happy Birthday to me! YUK! We are now involved in volleyball games, football games, and 5th Quarters. Next Friday will end our 1st six weeks. Hayden's Senior Year! Oh, how time flies! We are visiting the Cantrells next weekend to have a small "Welcome" party for Preston. I have several items made for Kate and Preston, but don't want to spoil the surprises, so I will post pics later.
I'll go ahead and wish you all a Happy Fall, Happy Halloween, and a Blessed Thanksgiving...just in case I don't show up for another 3 months!

Love to all!
