just a little weekend journaling

monday morning---i just got back from maybe a record setting trip to the grocery store--

always lots of things to catch up on, when monday rolls around--

we had a pretty busy weekend----

the coffee house turned out well--we had 8 youth and 2 were new--so that is always exciting---they all seemed to have a great time----and we also had birthday cake for our "pastor bob"----

he had left the church and was coming back----frank let him leave----i don't know why----so the pastor's wife, had to call him and tell him to come back, so we could sing to him and cut the birthday cake---

i told her she should have said the church was on fire or something else to get him back, but she being very sweet and truthful, told him about the birthday cake---

which led to a kinda funny scene, which i will leave a video today of-------

we also had our youngest grandson's birthday party to attend---he turned 10!

there was ballroom for robyn and lots of church yesterday-

we had our church then robyn had her "youth on mission" meeting----there they worked on the youth calendar for the summer---an exorbitant amount of time was spent on voting and re-voting on whether to go bowling later this month or skating---bowling won out---for now--

i went by to see my sister yesterday, since her birthday is actually today---she is 10 years older than me---we made a video there of her singing a funny song my nephew had written---but i don't think i will share that just yet---

then last night robyn was invited to a youth run church service at a friend's church---it gave us some good ideas to copy!

just checking in to say hi and wishing everyone a happy productive week :)

  7. I've been so busy the last few days, and now Catching up on commenting sounded like a fun and busy day, and the pastor was a trooper. Anymore if I hear birthday and I run in the opposite direction. :)

    1. haha i told robyn, i should have explained that "awkward" moment---you see, as i said the pastor came back--knowing he was going to have a cake, etc.---but gloria, our singer---was not picking up on it and had started her new song, when robyn had asked the pastor to come on down for a minute---frank had already lit the candles and everyone is waiting, while poor gloria is being rudely interrupted---:)

  17. I love to visit around to other churches and glean new ideas. As a pastor's wife that doesn't happen too often on a Sunday morning so I really appreciate the opportunity when we are on vacation. We have brought back some great new insights. Glad you had a productive week.
