VBS and Concert in the Park
This week has been a busy one. The kids attended a local church for VBS. They all had a really good day. The last day was Saturday and they ended with a big party. They had a HUGE blow up water slide, and several of the jumpy things. The party started at 10:30. The older kids was up at 7 am to sell doughnuts to raise money for church camp. I think they sold about 250 boxes of Krispy Kream! Hopefully enough was raised for all the kids in the church to go. I know they will absorb so much from church camp. They are excited to get to go. 15 children in all are attending. Ages 6 to 18! After the VBS party ended at the church the kids all came home home for a splash in the pool. They dried off, got dressed and we were off to a concert in the park. This is an event New Community Church puts on every year. There is hot dogs, hamburgers, chips, soft drinks, bottled waters, popcorn, and snow cones. And it is all FREE! Yes free. That's a big plus for this large family. The music was good too! Lots of oldies and some new too. We were all hot after coming home so the kids took another swim. A couple of my grown kids were splashing and playing with them so I didn't have to supervise to much. They came in and were asleep in minutes. Keith and I ended up with a quiet house and settled down around 10 for a movie for us. It was nice to watch and not be interrupted! Today is homecoming at a church we went to for a while and we plan on attending there today. I (we) have lots of food cooking and will be out the door shortly. Looking forward to a quiet afternoon. Pictures coming!
