Fourth of July

Hey. Here's a quick pic from July 4. Mark and I worked for Eve Doi at the Ames Old Fashioned Flag Waving Fourth of July parade. It was fun.

Summertime and the living is NOT easy

Whoever wrote that song did NOT work in children's ministry. Who plans these summer schedules anyway? Oh, right. Me. So I really can't complain can I???

Here's the scoop from Mandy B.
We made it through VBS (barely) and are now in full swing towards a four-day Day camp which begins on Tuesday, July 11. I did have a nice break over the weekend. I was up at Clear Lake (about 1.5 hours from Ames) with Mark and his family. It was nice to relax. We came back into town on Sunday night so that I could volunteer at the National Special Olympics on Monday. I was a softball announcer. It was fun!

So we (my summer intern and I) are now sort of in coast mode. Major decisions for Day Camp and Kids Camp in August have been made. So, now it is just the carrying out of those decisions. Which in reality is pretty easy.

Wedding stuff is going well. I got the fun phone call this week that my dress has arrived! It is in early! How fun! I'll have my first fitting on Tuesday, July 18. That will be a really fun day.

Mark and I picked out tuxes yesterday. Those boys will look NICE.

Next on the list is printing and stuffing invitations. Then we'll start the process of receiving RSVPs and getting ready for showers. Wow. It is all fun.

That's it for me. Would love to hear from you . . .
