Did You Miss Me?

Wow! It has been a long time since the last time I posted. I have been busy. Not with anything really exciting. Just busy.

We took a trip to Newport, Oregon right after Memorial Day weekend. It was fun except that the weather was not too good. We took the kids to the Oregon Coast Aquarium and they really seemed to enjoy that. We were disappointed that the weather was not better because we really wanted to take the girls down to the beach so they could see the ocean up close. Hopefully, we will have another opportunity to take them to the coast.

We have spent the last two weekends celebrating H's 2 1/2 birthday. Two Sundays ago we spent the afternoon celebrating with my family and we spent last Sunday celebrating with Steve's family. I know it sounds kinda weird when I say that we celebrated her 2 1/2 birthday but we did that because her birthday is December 29th. It is so close to Christmas that we thought it would be better to spread things out a little bit. It's easier on the checking account too.

Last night Steve and I (along with a couple of other adults) took some of the youth group kids to serve dinner at the Union Gospel Mission. Our youth group goes once a month but this was the first time that Steve and I had gone. The other youth leaders and most of the youth group are in Greeley, Colorado this week doing Vacation Bible School for another church so we had a very small group with us. We had a lot of fun though. The youth group that I went to in high school used to serve dinner to the homeless once a month at City Gate in downtown Spokane and I had forgotten how much I enjoyed doing that. Most of the people are so grateful and it really is a blessing to be able to serve them.

This summer looks like it is shaping up to be a pretty busy one. We have a lot of youth activities planned and just trying to make time for our family is getting more difficult. We are happy though and God is taking care of us. We couldn't ask for anything more.

I forgot about City Gate! That feels like it was a million years ago, doesn't it?
