The Latest News… June 2015


I love summer vacation, but it always takes me until the Fourth of July to get my bearings.  We have enjoyed a busy start here with a very full and busy week working at Vacation Bible school.  This year we thought we would try tie dyeing (with 150 kids!) and it was as much fun as it was frenzied.  Let’s just say we made some notes on how to streamline the process for next year.  I am enjoying a quiet week – if you can call playing catch-up from last week quiet- before we head out for our family vacation to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania and Lynchburg, Virginia.  I have never been to Gettysburg, and I am pretty excited about seeing this place that I have read about since gradeschool.  There is just something about visiting historic sites in person that makes history seem so close, so real, and so personal.  Do any of  you have plans to do some exploring this summer?
