VBS

I had a great time helping my friend Pam with VBS. She was in charge! Our theme was 'The Race is On.'
It was a good week of teaching children that Jesus is the way to eternal life. They loved watching the skit of the tortoise and the hare racing through the woods. The hare trusted the snake and tried to win by taking short cuts. In the end the tortoise helped the hare find the TRUE way.

Mississippi in June

After VBS we spent a week at my parents. We had a relaxing, but hot, week! We swam almost everyday, enjoyed some good tomatoes and time with my parents. 

James playing Fireman Sam and Bob the Builder in the old dog cage.






Both kids got haircuts. 


Millie took her first tennis lesson with my old coach, Mr. Jamie, and she loved it!




Friday night at the carousel! Millie didn't get off the carousel the whole time, and James enjoyed the popcorn and juice boxes. 






We went out to dinner with my parents and their friends. We arrived right after a storm hit, and the power was out! We enjoyed a great dinner on the porch. A few of us were also wearing matching outfits. 

It was a great week!

Millie's Beach Party

I'm back just to post pictues. I can't promise I will be consistent. This is my way of dating my pictures and remembering special things because I'm not good with scrapbooking, and I have a terrible memory!

Millie's birthday fell during VBS this year. I knew it would be a busy week so we had her party a week early. We invited her girlfriends from school and Sunday school and had a beach party! I've learned over the years that it is dangerous to have too many children at a pool party so we also had some of our favorite babysitters/lifeguards on duty. She said it was her best party yet! Happy 5th Birthday to my Millie!
