Dutch Wonderland

 We took the kids to Dutch Wonderland- a child's amusement park.  We did the half off night time discount.  The kids had a great time, Jeremiah learned that he loved roller coasters!  We drove cars and a train and a boat.  Lots of things to see and do.  


 While in York, I enjoyed a day driving up to see my high school friend and college roommate Sara.  I got to see her sweet son Caleb who they just brought home from India this summer.  He is a precious little pumpkin.  Eric and Kirsten were great help playing with Jeremiah and Lydia.  We also enjoyed a great visit with our friend Sandy who drove to my mom's house to visit.  It was great to see her!

York Travels

 A few weeks ago, we went to York and visited my family.  We went to a baseball game, went bowling, heard a missionary share about her life in the Sahara and went to her African day where we sat on the floor and ate rice with our hands.  We went to VBS and a fun fair at my parents church.  Jeremiah worked hard to win a soccer ball.  We went to parks and went creeking and Jeremiah caught a crayfish.

 With some cooler temps in July, we did a little family campout.  We decided to do it at the church office.  The weather was beautiful and relaxing and the kids enjoyed sleeping out in the tent.  We made smores and did a hike the next morning.  It was a fun overnight trip.

Summer Reading...

Book recommendations so far this summer!  Jeremiah and I just finished this book that a friend had told me about.  We really enjoyed reading it and I was in tears by the end- such a great story for boys about adventure and also sacrifice!  I love this book also because I remember watching the movie growing up.  Disney has a movie version called "Third Man on the Mountain."  I remember loving this movie and told Jeremiah we would have a night where we could watch it together. 
I am in cleaning and organizing mode which his rather hard with 4 little ones in tow.  I am working on the school room and also toys and kids rooms and closets- a very daunting task!  So today while I was organizing, I finished listening to Uncle Tom's Cabin!  Wow- what an inspirational book.  I am trying to go back to old classics and I can't believe I never read that book before.  So I am slowly trying to read some good literature.

Gospel Coalition

This month I enjoyed going to Women's Gospel Coalition.  The best part was spending time worshiping with some sweet friends.  I was very thankful for the intentional time together- girls I had not seen in a long time.  And we got to worship with lovely ladies from ECC as well.
