...for June pictures!!!!

June was a blur of activity. First we wrapped up a year of lessons with the annual Piano Recital. Marlee and David did extremely well!

Then came Vacation Bible School. This year's theme was 'Service'. We had a new format this year, but I think it went really well. The kids had a grand time during the week. Mom helped with the 3rd grade class. Jacob helped part of the week with recreation and part of the week with the Junior High Camp. The rest of the week he was at Football Camp. Victoria was a Crew Leader for the Junior High Camp. We didn't get as many photos this year as we usually do, but at least one turned out okay.

The younger kids had several friends over for some fun. The men went on a Father/Son Retreat. Troy celebrated his 38th birthday. We had a low-key Father's Day. We also enjoyed a wonderful time with Grandpa Ron and Grandma Sweetie as we celebrated their anniversary with them at a Cowboy Dinner Show. It was a great time for the whole family!!

Marlee and Dad put in some time on Gem and Bart.

It was a pretty good month, for the most part. We had some turbulent waters, but the Lord, as always has been gracious and is gently guiding us through as we learn to put aside the old man (or woman, as the case may be).

Here are some pictures from the month. July is proving to be a bit more exciting...well, at least we have more pictures. They will be coming soon!
