Where Did Summer Go?

It seems like it was just last week when I was telling you guys how excited I was for the youth group kids to get out of school and for all the summer activities to start, and now, those activities are almost all over. 
It went by so fast this year!
I guess it does every year, but it seems to have really blown by this time.
This is the week of summer where we would usually have an Intern Party and a closing to the summer. 
Since Michael doesn't have interns, we're just leaving on vacation and calling it the end of summer!
Not really...but pretty much.

Last week Michael had a Service Scavenger Hunt on Tuesday, bowling on Thursday, a baptism on Friday (CONGRATS SAMANTHA!)
a youth rally all day on Saturday - outside, I might was hot! - and then a Graduate Send-off today after evening services.
All of that is just the past 6 days!
Its been a busy week, and an even busier summer.
We wouldn't want it any other way though.

Michael and I have had so much fun spending time with the JV Youth group and getting to know all of them.
We feel so blessed to be a part of a congregation that takes such an interest in the lives of their young people.
We also feel blessed that the young people have such big hearts, and a desire to serve the Lord and be a light in this world.
And lastly, we praise God for all the teens who gave their life to Christ and were baptized this summer!

Thank you to all the parents, youth kids, adult sponsors, teachers, and others who have made this summer the best it could be through their dedication of time, service, encouragement, and prayer.
We could not have done it without you!
Here are some highlights from our summer with the JV Youth:
We loved getting to serve at Impact
Twins...embarrassing or not?
Galveston Beach Day
The JV Group at Camp Bandina

White Water Rafting in Colorado

Capture the Flag at the Girl's Retreat
