[and now it’s august]

Time just seems to get away from me…it seems like only yesterday since my last post but it’s been almost two months.  I keep telling myself I am going to get better at this blogging thing.

June was made up of dance recital (see my last post), piano recital and Word of Life Camp.  For the last three summers, George and Daniel and I head to upstate New York to the Adirondack Mountains to attend WOL camp.  It is a Christian camp for 6 year to 18 year olds.  Of course since the trip is 12 hours one way the adults have to stay the week.  There is just as much to do for the adults as the kids.  We have such a blast.  Bible study multiple times a day, all of our meals are provided, hanging out with the most awesome friends and spending some time together as a couple.  It is sad to leave Daniel & Olivia for a week but it won’t be long before they will be attending with us.

July brought in Vacation Bible School.  This is my favorite event at uor church.  VBS goes from infant to adult.  There is a place for everyone and so many decisions were made this year by kids and adults.  It is awesome to be a part of.
July brought with it sadness as George’s mom went home to be with the Lord on July 28th.  She had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer just 3 weeks ago.  They told us it would progress quickly but I don’t think we expected it to be quite this fast.  George and I were there when she passed and it was a very humbling experience but knowing that she is in Heaven brings us comfort.  We had the visitation on Friday night and a graveside service yesterday.  Our awesome church family provided a luncheon for family and friends.  We are so blessed to be a part of Unity Baptist Church.  We were able to see some family that we have not seen in a really long time.
So today is the first day of August…I do plan to get better at this blogging thing.
