Another month past and another wedding that I was able to go to! Well really there were about three last month I wanted to go to, and another three this month, but life is CRAZY!! I got the awesome opportunity to sing in one of my best friends' weddings a couple weeks ago. She and I have been close friends since the 6th grade, and despite distance and busy schedules we still cherish each other!
Kim Neptune, now Kim Helgen was a BEAUTIFUL bride!! Congrats Tyler on getting a good one! ;)
Prior to the wedding the youth group went to summer camp. We went to Student Life's camp in Orange Beach, AL. Such a great weekend!! Got to see God move in AMAZING ways in the lives of many of our students. I am blessed to have the job I do! Cuz I get to see things like this...
During one of the sessions at camp they talked about the importance of pouring blessing into others. Whether that be at their schools or even in the form of missions. They gave the opportunity for students and leaders to come forward and choose to sponsor a child through Compassion International. (There's the link if you're interested in finding out more info) After a quick confirmation with Devin that we could do it, we decided to take on the commitment of sponsoring a child. Meet Sifatou. She is 4 years old. Her birthday is four days before Eliza's!
Our other children have been behaving well. Trigger is such an annoying little brother!!! ALWAYS running after the cat. But Magwell will turn it around and chase after Trigger too from time to time. They loving tolerate each other. Here is a short video to prove it.
Don't ask me why I find all these animals, I guess I was just raised to have an eye for the details a lot of people miss. Thanks Mom!!! I love that! I've owned my nature nerdiness over the years :)
The end of this month concludes with being able to go see Devin!!! He gets a few days of pass, where I pick him up at 6am and drop him back off at 10pm. Can't wait to see him!!!!
Love you all! Sorry that this was a little bit more of a lengthy update!
