I would be remiss if I did not at least post a family news bulletin for this month.
We have joined facebook, and spend most of our time there, connecting and chatting with friends and family that use that application as well.
May has continued to be busy as we try to finish up the school year, and the various youth activities that do not continue through the summer months.
This week we are supposed to be taking the end of year state testing. Alas, Jamie has come down with a sinus infection and nasal drip. He is hoping to start at least one of the easier testing units today, so that we can still stay on schedule.
Justin had the sinus infection last week, and is still feeling run down from it.
Ted is busy in a massive menu changeover that will continue through the summer months. It keeps him busy, but he makes time for church and family.
The end of April we took a quick "honeymoon" to Gatlinburg, TN for our 17th wedding anniversary. I then let Ted go to the coast to fish with the men from our church for 2 days. It was the first time we have had a "vacation" since last May.
Ted and his sister sang with their quartet "Voices of Faith" at a Fish Camp (seafood restaurant) in South Carolina, the end of April.
Tradition is the name of the other quartet that Ted is in, and our Pastor asked Tradition and Voices of Faith to join him in Jubilee Meetings in Berea, SC, a couple weeks ago. It was good to worship and praise God with another church, and to share in the preaching from our Pastor with them.
Tradition is also supposed to sing at the Crystal Sea Fish Camp the end of this month. The owners of the restaurant are members of our church, and they have a Gospel singing at their dinner time every Saturday night.
We do not have a busy summer schedule yet. The boys have signed up for summer teen camp in July, and VBS is the first part of August.
I want to wish all the mothers out there Happy Mother's Day.
Happy Birthday to my nephew Joshua, and Happy Anniversary to Ken and Tammy.
