We’ve been busy with fun!
An organ recital! During the summer there are free organ recitals every week downtown at the city auditorium. We met our friends, the Layhers there, and enjoyed an hour of fun music. This recital was full of show tunes and everyone sang along. Each recital usually ends with a silent film, accompanied by the organist which is always amazing to me. The organist doesn’t view the film ahead of time, and makes up the music as he watches overhead. Incredible!
Bubbles, Ballet, and Baking!
Old friends over for a visit…
The first day of summer I had planned watermelon with dinner and ice cream cones outside for dessert. The day was really chilly! We still went outside but needed pants and jackets. The mountains received two feet of snow that night and some of the ski resorts decided to stay open through the 4th of July. Crazy Colorado summer (winter?) weather!
A car show for family night…
Time with dear friends – running trains, crafts, food and conversation. We’re so thankful for our friends, the Layhers.
Cinemark $1 summer movies – Smallfoot!
And lots of playing. After we watched The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe movie a few weeks ago, the kids have been playing Narnia. I love their creativity!
And lastly, VBS at our church. Our kids had an amazing time! Typically our kids need quite a bit of coaxing to attend VBS. Our church has done the same VBS programs for decades – since Kenny was attending! Which is why the kids haven’t loved it in years past. However, last year we hired a new Children’s Director, and this year he completely revamped VBS. The changes were excellent and our kids noticed. I’d been praying that this year would be different and was thrilled after the first day when they came home excited, singing the songs around the house!
