What I've Been Doing...

Hey y'all! It's been awhile!
I have to admit, it feels good to sit down and write a blog post.
I've missed it. And I've missed reading your blogs. I've got to catch up on your lives soon :)

One of the main reasons for my lack for blogging lately has been my new job as Director of Children's Ministries at my church. It's been keeping me VERY busy, but it's SO much fun! I absolutely love it!

The first week in June was our Vacation Bible School. 
I was the lead teacher for fourth grade (boys & girls).
We had a blast playing games, doing crafts, learning about missions, & studying God's Word! 
We had several children make decisions for Christ! It was a great week!

Right now we are in the middle of our Summer Day Camp.
This is a camp for grades 1-6 and runs until the end of July.
I'm the camp director & I have two interns and a few youth helpers that are assisting me.
Each week is filled sports {mostly dodgeball! It's their favorite}, songs, games, bible study, crafts, and field trips! This week we went to the Children's Museum and the Zoo!
The kids had a blast...and I did too ;)

I have two BIG work projects that I'm about to get started on:
1. TeamKid. This is a high energy program we are planning to start in mid July.
2. Children's Church. We have never had children's church before so I'm really excited to get this started!

I've also been keeping a secret that has kept me SUPER busy!
I'm not quite ready to share yet, but hopefully in the next week or so it will be official and I can tell!
And no, it is not a baby. But it is so exciting and a BIG step for us! :)

One last thing...this weekend is a very happy one.
My best friend is marrying my cousin after EIGHT years of dating! 
I'm so excited for them and ready for a weekend of celebration! 

Y'all have a great weekend! :)

{& I'm going to do my best to be a better blogger! I know I won't be able to post everyday anymore, but hopefully two or three times a week!}

Working Girl

Hi, y'all! I hope everyone has had a lovely weekend!

You may {or may not} have noticed my absence from the blogging world that past few days.
I started my new job last Tuesday, so it's been a busy week!

My first week of work was great! 
Check out my office....
Not bad, huh?! ;) Definitely could use some decorating. Gotta get on that soon!

Our Vacation Bible School starts tomorrow!
It will be a busy, but VERY fun week! I'm so excited :)

I realized today that I forgot to post about my Memorial Day Weekend.
We pretty much spent EVERY day at the pool with family & friends.
{And ate waaaaaay too much food!}

Here are a few pictures I snapped with my phone:









I loved soaking up the sun & spending time with my wonderful family!

Hope y'all have a great week!
