Last week, we went to Oklahoma again. This time, we stayed the entire week with my sister. Piper attended VBS at their church. It's always so nice to go to Sheryl's because it's easy, we're taken care of well, and I have six other people to babysit at any given time! Ha!
This month is almost over! And we just finished our third week of summer! It has not been boring yet! We've been packing our days and weeks with a lot of fun!
Piper has been loving the pool this summer. Both kids have actually! She and her friend Campbell have had fun together!
We're actually purposely serving others this summer with a group from church called "Hands and Feet Service Projects." There are weekly projects to do as a big group or just with your individual families. The Meals on Wheels was a group project, but the kids also completed a project of collecting canned goods to take to a local food bank. We made flyers and Piper put them in every mailbox on our street and we emailed a few family members and friends. Together, we collected over seventy-eight pounds of food! It was neat to drop the food off and see the facility. The kids have never done anything like that!
Piper and Briggs had a sleepover together in our bedroom last Friday as a reward for learning their bible verse. They did good and it was fun!
