From my front porch

From My Front Porch - Button

I was sitting outside yesterday morning enjoying the quietness of my home (before my boys woke up) and I kept hearing this noise up in the tree in my front yard. So I looked up and saw a couple of squirrels getting leaves and taking them to their home. So I quietly went in and got my camera and took some pictures. I guess they are "winterizing their home."

Vacation Bible School

Wow, what a week we had at Vacation Bible School !! This year's theme was Museum @12627 "The Mystery of God's Great Plan" I was the "unofficial photographer," but that's okay, I had so much fun!! So I took some of pictures that I had taken and make them into a slide show complete with music. Enjoy the pictures, although it doesn't really capture just how much fun was had by all.

This week's picture is a cool picture that I took of the moon.. I was just playing around with the settings on my camera, trying to figure out how to take good night pictures. Enjoy!

summer activities

Where to begin? The summer is almost over and wow what a fun summer it has been for my kids! Between Honor Guard, church camp, boy scout camp and the various church activities, the kids have been keeping busy, which is great for me, as I'm not playing referee all the time!!

All 3 attended church camp this summer, this was the first time for all. Wow, I love this camp, and they all had a blast. Water's Edge. This is the only picture I have, maybe I'll get my daughter's camera and see what kind of pictures she has on there.

This is Dustin and Steven with Harrison. Harrison is the drummer in a band called All Things New. This band is a group of students from Olivet Nazarene University in Illinois. They tour Nazarene church camps, spending time with the kids, singing and praising God.

The boys also went to Camp Tapico, a boy scout camp for the 2nd year in a row. A week with all boys camping out and doing cool stuff, yeah, they had fun !

Nicole attended a lacrosse camp at Michigan State University. She learned some new stuff and hopefully it will help her this coming spring when she plays for our school's team !

I still have 2 more summer events to blog about, but I want to wait until Vacation Bible School is all over with so I can do a slide show of pictures from the week. Also, honor guard, which I will have to wait until my daughter gets home from the Island and I will do another slide show!
