Camping Anyone?

Posted by:

This past weekend we were able to head a bit north for some extended family time. We stayed at Miller’s Family Campground with Jason’s dad, brother and sister-in-law. It rained on and off all weekend and it was quite cold, but we weren’t bothered by any of that. Thankfully we’d had the foresight to book two little cabins, which had cold running water, but best of all, they had wood stoves! We were toasty and dry all weekend! Continue Reading →

184 attend VBS on first day, prayer needed

Posted by:

WOW! We are pumped. We had 144 children pre-registered for VBS, and 184 showed up for the first day. We are truly blessed, but at the same time needing your prayers — our enemy will not stand by idly. If you are led to pray while we are running, it is from 9:30-noon each morning, and our BBQ and evening program is Wednesday.

Know some kids in the Huron County area needing something to do this week? We have bus ...

Surprise 70th Birthday Party

Posted by:

This past weekend was spent with Jason’s extended family on his Mom’s side.  His grandma turned 70 and what better excuse to get together!  We even managed to have it as a surprise, despite the fact that she knew that numerous relatives were in the area!  It was a very fun time together and the weather was perfect!

We took advantage of the trip down that way by making it an all day event — I spent the morning with ...

Ottawa Wedding

Posted by:

This weekend we made a trip to Ottawa! One of my cousins was getting married and they asked Lorelei to be the flower girl. Delena was kind of disappointed that she didn’t get to do it, but since she’s done it twice before, it was time to share the wealth!

It was an outdoor wedding and blazing hot, but thankfully we were in a mostly shaded area, so no one fainted or anything! :)

After the rehearsal ...

Childcare at New Tribes Mission

Posted by:

M and I in the nursery section

Much of my life is spent doing childcare. Okay, all of my life is childcare, but on Monday and Thursday mornings I spend half the morning looking after other people’s children at New Tribes Mission. I help look after the children of students who are training to be tribal church planters. It’s a fun time for me because I get out of the house ...

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Posted by:

Last night we had a Ladies Valentine’s Bingo Extravaganza at our church.  A friend and I organized it.  Don’t worry, we didn’t do any gambling.  There were lots of prizes to be won though, including the best red/pink outfit. :)  I must admit that I was nervous about being the ‘caller’, but once I got into it, I had a lot of fun with it. :)

Here are a few pictures of ...

2012 Milestones So Far

Posted by:

One month down in the year 2012!  Wow!  I think it’s true that time goes by faster the older you get and I should know since I’ve just hit the milestone of turning 30! :)  Jason likes to remind me quite frequently that he’s younger than me, but I like to remind him to respect his elders! :)

Jason is still up in the air with his health.  He has a Dr.’s ...
