Friday, July 5 we loaded up and headed up to Garrett for the drive-in. We met our friends the Newmans. It was super crowded...crazy crowded. In fact, people parked outside and walked in with their chairs.
It was a little crazy...we didn't leave till 1! But the boys did great and it was a beautiful evening to relax...before
VBS started on Sunday. I was the director again this year...but fortunately this year I had a ton of help! It was a crazy week...more kids than we've every had. God really showed up and blessed the ministry in many ways. It was definitely a family event...Andy helped cook and prepare all the meals before hand for the volunteers...and Seth always loves staying late and helping me set up/clean up!
On Wednesday we had a special treat as a long time "blog" friend Megan came in to town. I first "met" Megan when searching the Internet for other kids with heart defects like Kate's. Their son oldest son Elijah has the same heart defect. She is on a 3 week journey meeting other "heart families" and we were fortunate to be one of her stops. We met at the zoo...on a VERY crowded day.
We went with Amber and her crew as well! Their daughter also has a congenital heart defect...she lives in Fort Wayne as well...so we've met a couple times.
It was only a few hours...but definitely a bond with these mommas that is indescribable. Wished we had lots more time! Megan is from Minnesota...maybe next spring we can go her way!
And..this week Andy also put in a new patio door! No lazy days of summer for us! It was a little harder than expected..but he did an awesome job...and now we don't know what to do with a patio door that you can actually open with 1 hand.
