Summer is in full swing! Our summer is going so well, in spite of a crazy schedule...of course, I don't know of any time in our lives when we don't have a crazy schedule!
Next weekend we're having our church's annual Freedom Celebration, which includes our car and motorcycle show. I'm so excited about it! Last year we just had cars - this will be our first year to have motorcycles as well. It's so fun seeing the cars (and bikes) that people have poured so much time into - they look great! One thing that makes it so fun is that the people who attend vote on the winners, so everyone gets invovled whether they have a car in the show or not! Plus we'll have a huge cookout, so we'll all go home stuffed and happy.
We're also just over a month out from Vacation Bible School, which I always head up. This year I'll be heading it up in the middle of summer class, so this should be interesting! Last year, we went out on a limb, wanting to try something different, and did a sports camp VBS. I have never had such a great reaction to any VBS before! It was a smash hit, so this year we're doing another sports camp. We're offering basketball, soccer, and cheerleading, with stories of famous atheletes and nightly Bible lessons on people who made a comeback. The highlight of the whole week is parents night, when the kids show off what they've learned, and our little cheerleaders show off during the closing ceremony.
And in the middle of all this, summer school begins...more on that Tuesday...life is crazy, but life is good. It's going to be a great summer.
