My sister-in-law Katie invited the kids to attend VBS at the church where she grew up. Her mom was their teacher and Katie helped in their class on the days she wasn't working. The kids had such a great time and were so glad they went. In fact they are still singing their VBS songs, with the motions, in the car almost daily.
My well behaved kiddos. Actually they did well but by the last song they were obviously getting a bit antsy.
I made a whirlwind trip to Arizona this June to celebrate Kendra's upcoming wedding with a bridal shower thrown by our ever sweet Aunt Cindy. Cooper and I set out for the airport at 3:30 am, arrived in Phoenix around 9:00 am, celebrated with Kendra, and then flew home and were in bed by 1:00 am or so. In hindsight it was a little much to do in one day, but it was wonderful to spend some time with our family in Arizona and we loved being a part of Kendra's celebration.

Mrs. Webb was our piano teacher growing up and has become a sweet friend. She has such a tender heart for each of us kids and I was so blessed by our time together.
Here we are young and energetic, about to pop, nursing a baby, and lugging around a heavy sleeping baby. I guess we've all grown up a bit.
