|During one of our two small snowfalls this winter, the boys got a chance to go sledding on Art Hill in Forest Park. They had a blast.|
|On Easter we experienced our first holiday ever away from family. Although we missed everyone back home, we were where we needed to be, at beautiful Immanuel - St. Charles celebrating the Lord's resurrection with our vicarage congregation.|
|My sister had a baby girl in February. We got to go visit her in March, and again for her baptism in April. Our kids are crazy about their new cousin.|
|We had such fun at Immanuel's annual parade and picnic earlier this month. We were so surprised to learn that we were going to get to ride in a Mustang convertible! We loved every minute of waving to spectators from that fancy car.|
|Unfortunately Micah's schedule hasn't allowed us to go camping this year, but we make do. On Mother's Day my wish was to spend the afternoon in our screen tent so I could pretend we were camping. I thought it was lovely.|
|This weekend has brought some very welcome rest and relaxation for all of us. Now we feel recharged and ready to for whatever adventures lie around the corner for us.|
We wish you all a blessed summer!
