We've did several nature hikes.
And spent a lot of time at the nearby playgrounds.
We also went swimming at the local pond for the first time this summer.
Two weeks ago, we spent an afternoon/evening with Matt's sister Stacey, her husband Steve and their son Patrick. It's always fun spending time with them but this time there was a special reason for getting together, Patrick left a few days later for boot camp as he has joined the Army National Guard.
I got to teach the elementary school group and we had a lot of fun learning about how Jesus called his Disciples to become fishers of men. We played a couple of fun games after reading the corresponding section of Scripture (Luke 5:1-11) and it felt almost like a mini Vacation Bible School.
I'm so excited to do this all again at the end of July and I can't wait to see what we come up with to do with the kids.
