We have had a crazy eventful six weeks, so I thought I would share through pictures!
Jeremy preached his first sermon on Mother’s Day, and his mom and grandma came to visit! We had an amazing time with Gigi and Grandma!
As an end of the school year celebration, we went to Six Flags! None of our kids had been before, and we had an absolute blast! We also discovered that our littlest one was tall enough to ride the water rides! Honestly, it was way too cold for water rides; but we didn’t let that stop us. The little one had fun until the splash. Then he cried: “It’s cold!” By the way, do you see the boy photo bombing us? Yeah, we don’t know him. 🙂
Our family was honored to join the fifth and sixth graders on their mission trip. What a godly group they are! We are so blessed that we got to minister alongside them.
We celebrated Red Nose Day to fight childhood hunger!
Our Superhero Fun Run/Walk was rained out, so we transformed it into a Superhero Indoor Field Day. Honestly, I think it turned out to be way more fun!
Check out the awesome heroes who joined us from Party Palace! They were all amazing! Cinderella even did relay races in her heels. She totally rocked!
Love is our superpower!
Our family of Supers!
The Superhero fundraiser was a huge success! We had so much fun, spread the word about adoption, and the Lord raised more than $1,000 for our adoption fund! And look how many people came!
My Super Family! Look at the little one posing!
1J2, a backyard Bible club, in one of our local parks, was a great success! My family can’t to go again next month!
340 kids came to Vacation Bible School at our church. God truly did great things! Here is a picture of Jeremy and some of his VBS friends.
We used music from JumpStart3 to hide God’s Word in our hearts! Here we are learning about the power of prayer.
My dad came in for a visit, and we got to spend Father’s Day together. We had such a wonderful time, but I was really sick and forgot to take a picture!
My oldest son got to join Jeremy and the older kids and youth from church to celebrate the longest day of summer! They played and worshiped for 11 hours!
Our younger two were not old enough to join in, so we had our own longest day ever. We went to the zoo, had a picnic, went swimming, and went to church! It was exhausting but super, amazingly fun!
Look how close we are to this peacock!
We rode the train. The little one LOVES trains! He told us all about how “choo-choos are hot.” He means that blow steam, which is hot.
We also fed giraffes. It was so special! Do you see the baby giraffe in the background?
Jeremy went kayaking with friends!
This happened a few days ago when I went to the bathroom for just a few minutes! Yes, that is paint! A mom’s life is always interesting!
This was a long six weeks. I am exhausted from writing about it! Please continue to pray with us that God will bring our new baby home soon.
