Mummies and Lemonade Stands

The second half of our VBS week went a little downhill.  I had a sore throat and felt horrible.  Hollis woke up Thursday crying and with fever so I kept her and WH home that day.  

I sent Harper on.  She LOVED VBS.  She wanted to wear this shirt that day.  Her friend Sawyer who was in Kindergarten through 2nd grade with her was just diagnosed with leukemia.  He fought a different illness this past spring and now he has leukemia.  We love their family and are praying for them together.  

We had to lay low the rest of Thursday and Friday.  It was too hot to go outside and I told the kids they could not watch any more you tube.  The next thing I knew they had wrapped Will Holden up like a mummy.  His face says it all.   ha ha ha! 

There was a lot of this going on the last few days.  

We made it to the last day of VBS.  It was a great week.  Almost 900 kids and almost 40 got saved.   

This was my crafts team.  We had a great time with the kids! 

Friday after VBS, our two sweet youth interns took Harper, Sarah Kate and their friend Caroline out to lunch and a trampoline park.  Harper was more excited about this than anything ever.  It was so kind of these girls to spend time with them.  It was so very special for these girls.  I love that she has had someone to look up to.  

Keleigh is like looking at a future Harper.  They even had matching braids on Friday (on accident).  I would be thrilled if Harper grew up to be anything like her! 

We got new shirts for Disney in the mail.  How cute are they???/

Saturday morning, one of my good friends' sister was having a garage sale down the street so we went down and hung out.  I was literally in my pj's and messy hair but it's a good enough friend that I felt comfortable to go anyway.  

We had a lazy day at home Saturday.  I was feeling crummy.  Scott cleaned our cars for a long time.  Hollis had a play/swim date with her best friend from school.  They haven't seen each other all summer and she was SO excited to see her! 

Will Holden told me he was being like Paul and praying.  They learned about Paul at VBS and WH has been talking about it non stop.  He has to say "what's his name again?" and when I say "paul" - he says " Yeah, he was in the jail and was praying and singing and God broke open the gates".  If you are a preschool teacher - you may think no one is listening - but they are! 

Yesterday was church.  The girls put on Scott's stuff and then gave me scowls like him when I took their picture.  They know he likes to give me a mean face when I take his picture.  

Harper has started mowing the yard.  She loves it.  And I'm sure Scott loves having a helper! ha! 

We are excited to have a free week this week.  We don't have many plans beyond sleeping late and swimming.  And that's the BEST!
