Two Days in a Row!

Yes, we're posting for a second straight day because we couldn't resist sharing the following video with you. Lucas and Grace are singing a song that Lucas learned in Vacation Bible Camp last week. Grace is doing her best to keep up. Notice especially the grins she gives to the camera, thinking that she's having her picture taken!

It's Been Too Long

Sorry, gang! At least, I should say sorry to those who look at this blog at all regularly. Obviously, we've been a little delinquent in giving you any juicy morsels at all. It isn't for a lack of things happening! Just the opposite, as usual: busy lives.

Tarren has been busy with school and starting a new job as a nurse's assistant at a nearby hospital (where Grace was born). A couple days ago she found out that she was accepted to a Nursing Masters program at a prestigious medical university in the area which would require a full-time committment over the next couple years (and then another full-time committment to pay for it!). She also has the option of taking it more slowly at a nearby community college, where she would earn an associates degree with the idea of pursuing further education. We'll see what her ultimate decision is.

Our church sanctuary is currently undergoing a partial renovation (lighting, ceiling, sound and video), which has relegated us to worshipping in the church basement the last several weeks. Summertime affords us a little more flexibility with our space since school is out and the building sits unused for most of these weeks. We're looking forward to getting back into our newly-minted worship space.

We spent a week in the Denver area with my sister and her family at the end of May to attend my godson's confirmation. I had the privilege of preaching for that, as well, so it was a little bit of a working vacation. We had an opportunity to visit Rocky Mountain National Park, among other things. I'll add a few pictures of that wonderful experience:
