Blues From Our Sunday....

Monday today.  I have missed this meme but
have not had time to make many visits so I took
a break.  Today, I will make sure to scoot around
and visit.....

Yesterday was a beautiful day for launching rockets!
Pastor Mike likes to plan at least one "October Sky"
launch.  There was a slight breeze so the launchers all
pointed a bit South with the hopes that the wind would
bring the rockets back to us.  
Sometimes that worked....others had the young ones 
running and running to recover the wayward rockets.

Mikey found himself bleeding after climbing some 
very thorny tree.  But I think it was worth it to him
because he came back with the rocket,
telling the story and using the
Latin name of the tree in each retelling. 
Learning Latin names for plants 
is not proving as hard as he feared.
But it is no walk in the park!
Most of these pictures were taken by Chelsea....
So...I find it interesting to see the world through 
her eyes.   She found this adorable little girl and 
her plane......

Courtney is the Granddaughter of 
one of the couples at church.

Then there are Chelsea's shoes.

I thought I would include them because
they are cute...and they are blue!

These are shots of Mikey.

Interesting, don't you think?
Through the eyes of a sister.
But there is blue in each one.

We had a great turn out for the rocket launch!
Many friends from church and some who are
checking out the church.  

Seeing everyone in 
sweet conversation or activity was truly a blessing.
That is apple juice in the coke bottle!

As it got to be dusk the light sabers came out.
These are the only pictures taken by me.
I was playing with the different settings on
my camera....

Jonathan and Kyle remind me of a modern day
David and Goliath!  
Just look at Kyle's face!

 Don't mess with Sarah!

It was another very full day with Worship, Fellowship,
Fun and then it was made the best day of all because 
my husband returned home safely after nearly a week
away at a conference.  
It is always better to have him here.
My best friend!

What a great way for your family to share quality time with your church family.

We had a good time at the Rocket Launch, Hannah said it was really fun (she was a bit reluctant to come at first).

I like the photos of Mikey... the wounded warrior. LOL

Your church has the most fun ideas.

Happy Blue Monday, Becky!

I love how your church does these fellowship activities for families.

So glad that Warren is home again. I know I'm lost without my husband!

It looks like everyone had a great time! My kids like to have light saber wars at night too. I think it might be warmer there than it is here. We couldn't be outside at night without coats on right now. Our weather changed last week, and it's gotten pretty cool.

Karen said...

Those light saber pics are really cool!

You guys have such a lovely church family-and such great times together!
