July is always our kids’ favorite month of the year. Why? Camp Awesome! We took 38 kids and 14 adults/teenagers to Hidden Falls Ranch on July 1 for our annual 3 days of crazy fun. We climbed, hiked, swam, rode horses, tie-dyed our camp t-shirts, ate S’mores, laughed a lot, and ate some delicious food. […]
We have already had a blast this summer! In addition to our regular weekly Bible studies filled with crafts, snacks, and water balloons, we were able to partner with 3 different churches to create some fun new memories and friendships for our kids. We kicked off the summer at Cathy’s Pointe with the Hillside North […]
Its hard to believe, but we’ve finished our last month of the school year! May was filled with some great weather (when it wasn’t raining). We continued learning about the Armor of God, and the kids got in their last bit of fun with Lia before she had her baby boy (on Tuesday, May 28!). […]

Our first month of the new year flew by. We started our study on the life of Jesus each week, played as many wild and wacky games as we could, made some fun things, and met some new friends. And, as always, we had a blast!
At our annual North Grand Villas Christmas party yesterday, I met a new family. They moved in just a week ago. The kids saw the party going on and decided to check it out. After we handed out goodie bags to all the kids, their mom approached me. She told me “Thank you. This goodie […]
We’ve spent the month of October trying to memorize the books of the Bible in order. And the kids are getting close – even if only half of them can correctly pronounce Deuteronomy and more than one thinks Jackariah is a book in the Old Testament. We’ve tried to enjoy as many of the warm […]
