Girls Reunion 2012

I have just returned from a week with Jr. High students, and survived!  I will post about that soon.  Yet, right before that trip, I was able to go home to spend a weekend with girls from high school (well some even elementary/middle school too).

We get together every year, and this year we stayed in West Chester.  We cooked together, ate together, hit the pool together, and caught up on life.  it is always refreshing to spend time with people that have known you your whole life... the good, bad and the ugly! We now have added 4 babies to our clan of girls :)  Here are some of the fun memories from the weekend.

Good morning ladies!

Summer 2012

This summer is going to look a little different for me.  I will not have as much lounging, tanning and vacation time this summer.  I will be working at our church as a youth intern with Marty this summer.  I will have administrative duties as well as hanging out with the girls in our group.  I have enjoyed my week so far, and am looking forward to some really fun times of learning and getting to know the girls.

Last night, we got together with some friends and went to Tower Grove Park.  The second Friday of each month, they host food trucks, and we all went to picnic together for dinner.  It was a really different experience for dinner, but a fun change.  We got there and it was super crowded, we stood in line for a really long time, and the trucks ended up running out of food...moral of the story, don't be late to food truck Friday.  I enjoyed time with friends and picnicking outside the most :)

After dinner the boys played Spikeball, which is the new "it" yard game that has taken over the seminary and youth group.  If you haven't tried it, you should.  Father's Day present in the making (if you have a somewhat active Father). Check it out here:
