June came and went!!
Our June Happenings were great!
Here are the Highlights:
1. Homeschool graduation
|Homeschool Graduation Night|
2. Still going with the Nursing Home Ministry.
I take my boys almost every Wednesday AM to a local nursing home to share a bible study with mostly female residents there. We sing a couple of hymns and then do a 15-30 min. bible study. Janet, who is the lead for this ministry, is going to change up the way it's been going to getting the children more involved. Then we have added another talented family to the mix whose son can play the guitar beautifully and mom can sing a special. I agree with this change because nursing home residents love the children and anything they can bring to the bible study memorable for the residents. The kids will be singing some bible songs and stick with a 15 min bible study and more songs to share with them.
It's a great opportunity for my children and me...it's a blessing to be able to go and see smiles on their faces and volunteering our time. There is one lady that reminds me of my mother (grandmother) because she is not shy in telling my youngest to "sit down or I'll give you a spanking" and then proceeds to give you her evil eye. LOL!!! Yes, my mother indeed.
Miss my mom.
4. We hosted our first Movie Night. We have friends over for a pool/movie night. We have almost 20 kids come over for fun in the sun and a movie!! It was a great night!!
5. Can't be in the military and not go to a military ball!! My husband and I had a date night at the 237th Army Birthday Ball! It was fantastic.
6. Went to our first Civics Class with F.E.A.S.T.
