Summer 2013 Part 2

 Yep, Clay is really getting into this hunting business.
 We had our cookie back a little earlier this year since it seems Nov & Dec get so busy.
We baked over 1600 cookies.



 The homeschoolers started off the year with a banquet.  Several of the girls needed
to make a meal for home they threw a banquet.....They drew names to
see who was gonna go with who :)

Our Summer 2013

 Well, I am trying to catch up a little and I am way behind on this blog. 
We had a nice FAMILY summer......Spent some time in South Carolina
with my parents....went and saw "Karen Peck & New River" sing.
 We then hit the beach for several days....Poor Steve ended up with a horrible sunburn and
missed a couple days of work because it hurt so bad.  We did FINALLY find our
own sand dollar....and walked a LOOOOOOOOOOOOONG way
to the Kindred Spirit mailbox on the post prayer
requests in a notebook.

 Once back home from being lazy the garden was waiting for me!!!!
Thank the Lord for such a wonderful crop...whew, I filled a lot of jars
but is it ever oh so tasty!

 We were able to get a camping trip in as well.....a group of around
50 of us all gathered and had a great & lazy time.

 Senior Pictures -- Hard to believe Shalene is a Senior, but yeppers, its
 Clayton was able to purchase a bow!! He is so thrilled, has spent
a lot of time in the woods this year, he did get a deer.  Below you will see
that Shalene tried shooting the bow....this was her first time....she learned from that one.

Misions Trip to Romania 2013

Shalene & Clayton had the privilege to go on the Youth Missions Trip
this summer to Romania...this is their second time to go to Romania.  We took the
trip as a family several years back.  They were able to see some of the same kids at the orphanage that they were at.  The purpose of this trip was to have a Youth Camp for the teens that Sally Sebo (missionary) works with....some were from the orphanage and others from the small village.  They spent a week in the mountains at a camp with no electric and had a small youth camp. 

 They had a fun day in the city (above)
