Alyssa had a bunch of girls from our youth group over for a swim party tonight. Girls are so different in the pool......very quiet with NO splashing!! However, when they got in the house and started a game of spoons.......it was a whole different story.......very LOUD!!!!
Today was Father's day and after church, my kids and I went home to celebrate their dad. We were having so much fun, I never got the camera out till the end of the day. We started with grilling Steve's favorite dinner...brats, sour kraut, grilled corn, and baked beans. After we ate, we played in the pool all after noon...volley ball, keep away, basketball.....we had a blast!!!
Then I came in and made this for my honey!
of course we had to end this perfect day with a game of Settlers of Catan!
This is what you do with your pieces when you are losing....
We have a Korean church that worships in our facilities Sunday afternoons. It has been a blessing to get to know them. To thank us, they served us a tradition Korean meal on Sunday between our services....it was a.ma.zing!!
they spent all morning making homemade sushi.
It was soooo good!!!
Some of the ladies dressed in traditional Korean outfits and then they served us....I can't spell any of the dishes, but they were fantastic!!!
What a blessing to share what God has provided with them and to worship along side them!!
today was an at sea day and we had some excitement.
half way through the day the captain announce that the ship was turning around...
there was a small boat of refugees (we are assuming from Cuba) in trouble and sinking and we were the closest ship to them. They were turning around to attempt a rescue!
There were planes in the sky circling the boat and a coastguard speed boat got to them before us. The refugee boat is the small spec to the left. We were told there were 8 people aboard, but have no idea what happened to them. I can't imagine being out on that water, in a small boat, in trouble.
people were lined up on the front of the ship to see it all play out.....and capitalism was in full swing, they were actually out there selling beer and drinks to the people as they watched....sheesh.
Having the same waiters all week, you get to know them pretty well and they get to know you. We had the BEST wait staff and thoroughly enjoyed them. Our head waiter was from India and so much fun. However, she was having an awful time with a tooth ache and wouldn't be able to see a dentist for another week. My family had the awesome privilege of praying over her!
I am a woman in mid-life who loves the Lord and her family!! I am the mom of 3 absolutely amazing kids (23, 21, 19) who make my life happy, crazy, busy.....perfect! I am also a pastor's wife. I try to live each day looking for where God is working so that I can join him there.
I am attempting to take one photograph each day of this next year. My hope is to be able to slow down and see the small things, become a better photographer and to be reminded of the many blessings God sends my way!
