Every 7 years our church generously gives each pastor a sabbatical in addition to vacation time. Mike is taking this last week in June and most of July off for some R&R, and we are grateful for that.

It’s been quiet here on the blog because of several reasons. I’ve had one of those “and then” kind of months, where I felt about 90 years old and complained about one physical ailment after another.

I don’t put corn mazes in the category of Anna’s Type of Fun. 2. Four/Five Year-Olds are truly the funniest kids… Continue reading What I Learned Last Weekend
On Saturday it was Max’s turn to attend his year-end ceremony. He earned the Alpha award for T&T, which means he completed the first book and memorized 90 verses. Plus he participated in a verse-a-thon event and raised money for an Awana club in Venezuela. Our kids did an amazing job raising funds as a… Continue reading Awana Ceremony
