Your Creative Timeout Party {No.86}

Well summer is off to a fast start and I mean FAST!  VBS started at church this week and so we haven’t even been getting home until the early afternoon each day. The boys are having a blast and I’m working in Faith Skills so I’m keeping busy myself.  My brother’s birthday was yesterday.  He turned 23!  Happy Birthday Cliff!

Chris’s birthday is this weekend.

Reece’s birthday is next weekend.

Then it’s 4th of July.

Followed by British Soccer Camp week.

Then my sister flies in from Virginia.

Oh and of course we have swim six days a week…

Oh. My. Goodness.  I am so stressed!  It’s been challenging fitting everything in and it’s just going to get busier.  I’m doing the best I can and trying VERY HARD to be happy with that :)

Here’s what I’ve been up to…

  12. Thanks so much for hosting, Trish. Thanks also for stopping by and leaving a sweet comment on my Luscious Lemon Cookie Bars. I appreciate your kind words. We are doing VBS this week too and I am totally frazzled. I’m exhausted and out of creative juices, but feel so blessed to be a part of this amazing week at church where over 1200 kids hear the Gospel preached each and every day! Hope your week is wonderful and that God continues to grow and stretch you, molding you into the person you were meant to be!

    • Isn’t VBS amazing? Even though I am always stressed because I don’t feel I have the time, I end up being rewarded in so many ways throughout the week. It’s an absolute privilege to watch those kids progress through the week. Always, always, always 100% worth it. Hope you have a wonderful weekend Nici!
