We saw a beautiful, double rainbow from our house today! This is very special because with all of the tall trees around our house, we normally wouldn't be able to see it. God placed it exactly in our viewable path tonight.

Today at church the kids sang their favorite VBS songs. It was an awesome performance!! I will be honest in saying Griffin reluctantly got on stage ~ he came through though, and he made his Momma happy. I came to the realization today he will only have one more year before entering the youth program at church.

Tonight was the last night of VBS. It was an incredible week! I am so very thankful for every single person involved in VBS ~ they have made such a huge impact on my Griffin's life! 🎶 Rock the boat 🎶 Rock, rock the big boat! 🎶
Today during 4H camp, the kids visited the agricultural center at J. Sargent Reynolds College. They also made herb gardens with basil, cilantro, lavender, chives and parsley. It is the last day of 4H Camp and also the last day of VBS. We stopped in for a special treat at DQ to celebrate!

Today the 4H Farm To Table Camp took Griffin and his friends to Sweet Tree Hill Farm. They met Mrs. Oliver's family of fiber goats, sheep and rabbits. While there, they made felted wool soap.

These hard working kids had fun at 4H camp today! 🌱🍅 They picked over 40 crates of tomatoes at Shalom Farms, learned about the farm, had yellow watermelon and made a friend in an alligator-eyed farm cat.

The classroom is ready for the jellyfish class! It was fun getting crafty preparing the 'jellyfish' classroom for the 3-year-olds. It was definitely a family affair getting the classroom ready!! Mike and Griffin were so helpful!! I look forward to teaching these sweet children and share the gospel and love of Jesus Christ.
We discovered an injured lightning bug in our hallway when we got home. Griffin has such an incredible caring heart ~ he rescued him and took him outside to give him a chance at survival.
This is the reality of Griffin's flower garden. He planted it more than a year ago. It continues to produce beautiful flowers even though we haven't found time to tend it. 🌸🌻🌼 I was surprised to see all of these blossoms today. Definitely going to take some time to tend it next week.

Griffin just came downstairs with an armload of stuffed sea creatures for Mom's classroom. I mentioned it in passing and he remembered! 💙 What I love most is they are reminders of our travels to various aquariums and beaches.

This sun kissed, bug bitten, poison ivy flecked young man enjoyed his week at youth camp. As a mother, nothing makes me happier than knowing he is surrounded by adults and youth who fuel his faith and encourage his walk with Jesus Christ. 💙 #thankful
The week of July 10 - 16 our family was blessed with the beautiful opportunity to serve our community at 'Camp Serve Goochland' our church's youth mission trip. The Lord blessed us in a mighty way and allowed us to work in different areas of the community, participate in bible study, worship and hear testimonies. The photographs below are in no certain order.
