She told her story to everyone, saying that she felt happy to accept Christ into her heart when she was younger and felt like she understood things better. But once we moved to the Round Rock area, as a family, we didn't find a church home, and fell away from regular worship - she was not connected. As we started attending church at Hill Country Bible, she felt more and more connected and after Boot Camp wanted to make that public declaration.

A nice & quiet day was what we all needed on this Saturday. Did a little shopping for a new vacuum cleaner (exciting!) and a little dinner at our favorite pizza place. Just a great day as a family - these kiddos are going to miss their Dad!

And he loved playing shark & minnows! He was the giant shark that day.

Today Rock the Rock began in our city. Our church puts together kids camps around the city for anyone to come to and learn about Jesus. It's pretty incredible, as it is run mainly by the youth in our church. This was Morganne's first year and she loved it.

My favorite yogurt shop made this yogurt pie for us - called Candybar Madness - so rich and so good!

We lost the first 3 games, but played the first team we played for the final game and ended up beating them - we came together in the end and looked really good! Totally a fun way to spend the day.

June 21st - Summer is officially here.

I did pop over to see Morganne play a few games - she impressed me - for never having played basketball, she was totally into it. She wants to try out for the team at school this winter. In Middle School here, they have 3 organized sports for girls that count towards "athletics" - volleyball, basketball, and track. Unfortunately, soccer doesn't count towards it, but at least they do have a girls soccer team that she wants to try out for. So next year, she will go out for basketball, track, and soccer - my busy girl.

Matt is at home with Ian - kinda a ho-hum day for them - they went to Ihop. The older 2 and I got to watch the dolphins playfully jump around and splash everyone - ironically, The Beatles, "Here Comes the Sun" was playing - so touching.
So we rushed home after the conference and took Matt to a movie for Father's Day - Man of Steel. Meh. I was sentimental for the original. But it was a great story, full of great actors, fun lines - it was just BUSY - exhausting watching them throw each other trough all the buildings!

The conference was great - but the kids really enjoyed the free reign I gave them in the park (they had a cell phone - I'm not that relaxed....).
The last time we went on it, we sat in the front row and it was incredible - probably the least motion sickness I felt - it was totally fun!
For one part of the conference, we walked around the park with the SeaWorld official photographer and he showed us all kinds of cool places to take pictures in the park. Like the above one - totally my FAV shot I have ever taken at SeaWorld!
On a sentimental note, my uncle cooked a 6 pound tenderloin that my grandfather had purchased just a few days before his death. It was delicious - such a great cut and cooked perfectly. There was such a sadness to the night, as it was the first meal we had as family without him. Grandma said a lovely toast to my uncles about Father's Day and Aunt Mary said that she knew Grandpa was living on in the incredible children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren that were his legacy. Sigh.
I sure miss him. I keep thinking it will get easier and eventually my heart won't hurt when I think about it. Cause it hasn't yet.

Morganne said she grew so much closer to Christ this week - and that just makes me so happy to hear. She even wants to get baptized now. She will be taking the class this Sunday and will be baptized on Sunday June 30! Yay God!!

I have been working non-stop on our trip - reading as much as I can about each location we will be traveling to - I am so excited to do this trip. I have been wanting to go somewhere different this summer and I want to show the kids all the amazing National Parks we have. I want to take our time, see the sites, pull off the road when we want to = no agenda. I hope we can keep it that way!
