What's going on around the MP lately? Not much... Saturday morning we enjoyed a lovely morning on the deck on an unusually crisp summer morning. It was so nice to put on long sleeves and drink hot tea! After a quick game of fetch for J and Zep, we both got to work (which we'd brought home from our respective j-o-b's) and I then spent much of the day tackling DAR work. Our summer workshops are just around the corner and there is much to be prepared!
Yesterday was the Sunday School Kickoff Cookout at St. R. I got there at 8:00 a.m. to prepare, made announcements in the early service, met with a parishioner, met the inflatable set-up guy, set up for the cookout, made announcements in the late service, put on the cookout, then waited for the inflatable guy to come back and pick it up. J, ever the awesome partner he is, dropped me at 8:00, went shopping for cookout supplies, then manned the grill for two straight hours. He was just as happy as me to leave at nearly 4:00 p.m.
While exhausting, the day happened without a hitch, and the kids LOVED the inflatable. I bet you will, too:
Yeah, that's Noah's Ark (there's actually a blow-up Noah on the other side). Even my 'too cool' middle schoolers were impressed, and the little kids stayed busy bouncing most of the afternoon! I've been excitedly showing off pictures from the company's website for two weeks, but it was way cooler in person. I'm tempted to go ahead and make our reservation for next year's kick-off!
So there you go--not much going on around the MP, but a lot keeping us busy!
