Drop in at our house!

7 Aug

Last Sunday night, we had the opportunity to host a “drop in” at our house.  We had a good group of boys and girls (heavy on the boys) and they played in the pool, played basketball, got in the hot tub and played XBox.  As of this month, both guys are promoting upward to the college age Sunday School class. (but,I have a feeling that they’ll still hang around anyway)

 We have been so blessed and are very grateful to the youth staff for the years of service they have given to our kids.  I know they have played a significant role in who my kids have become today.  Thanks to the time and caring of the youth minister “extraordinaire” that we have.  (Brian actually taught my oldest to drive a stick shift!)  He makes such an effort with the youth.  His fall retreats were always favored by my boys over the summer camps. 

So……..a great big, huge, awesome thank you to Brian and company!

Note:  The two little cuties in these pictures belong to Brian and his sweet wife Melissa.  These babies don’t know how blessed they are to have the opportunity to grow up under God’s guidance with these two precious people.  (thanks for permission to post their photos)

The little guy in this picture was stuck at the shallow end with the duck, but wanted to be with the big boys playing basketball.  When they got in the hot tub, he wanted to get in “dat swimmin pool”.  Lastly, if you want to imagine him with the duck in the pool, just think “Dash” from The Incredibles.  He was a hoot!

    I love to tell the story how God led Brian and Melissa to Second Baptist. It was a true calling from God. I am so proud of those two.

    Thanks for the kind and sweet words. Brian and I are so blessed to be at such a loving church.

    I love those babes and their mom and dad too! We’re lucky to call them friends and to exchange babysitting nights. We hope to share many happy years with them too!
