Any Given Sunday

God has blessed us with a wonderful church. We have seen LifeQuest grow from the very beginning and it is obvious that He is working mightily there. Kate loves Sunday School and has been learning Bible verses and songs about Jesus. This last Sunday was her final day in the Zany Zebras class and she will be moving up to the Gentle Giraffes next week. I am half in tears writing this (when did she get this grown up? Underwear? REALLY?) thinking about just how fast time does go... but then my other half is laughing and thinking... I wonder if she will lose just a little bit of her "zany-ness" and adapt a smidge of "gentleness."

This Sunday was dedicated to our KidsKwest Ministry and our fantastic new director Rochelle organized a mini version of what goes on in there each week. This is a ministry that gets taken for granted quite a bit (in my humble opinion). We drop our kids off so that we can go to service each week, and it's easy to forget that it takes volunteers to not be in service - or to go to both! Here's my soapbox (it most likely stems from former-teacher-itis)...

Please volunteer. Especially if you have children in KidsKwest each week. Even a Sunday every once in while would help. A huge thank you goes to all of those who teach our kids on a regular basis. What a lifelong investment.

Scott and Amelia sang a duet during service as well. Katie has a video (with sound, people!), so rush on over and cry your everlovin' eyes out.

We also got a visit from Uncle Jake, Aunt Jocelyn and Gavin. We went to eat after church and did all we could to keep the kids from taking over the restaurant. The boys are just two weeks apart in age which should be fun around adolescence.

I don't even have words for this...

Hi Mikele - I love your blog! It's been ages since we've seen you guys and your kids - they are growing up so fast. Did Katie tell you we've got to set Miles up with our baby girl?
Love,
Kers
