Happy Independence Day!

Happy 4th of July! This is the first year I don't have anything planned. I'm missing family a little bit extra today as I think of all the fun that's going to be had with BBQ's, fellowship and fireworks.

Yesterday I went to the beach with a few boat wives. It was a fun day. We grilled hotdogs on a tiny hibachi grill and ate a hodgepodge of finger foods which made for a very nice picnic on the beach. I wore plenty of sunscreen which paid off and today as I see no signs of sun burn, which is
rare for me with 6 hours in the sun.

I've been spending a couple of week days working at our church helping to prep for Vacation Bible School. I had no idea so much work and effort was done behind the scenes to make VBS happen. I have such fond memories of going to VBS as a kid and I really want to pass that along to kids today. Of course VBS is more than a time for fun memories it is a ministery for kids and I hope to see many little hearts coming to Jesus. I'm working in the "snacks dept." but for now I'm helping decorate the chuch and it's starting to look great.
