Baking

Thursday is my granddaughter's"s Mother"s birthday we are baking her a cake. This is always so much fun to bake with my grand. We have a blast.

We have just been hanging out watching T.V. and playing board games.

We are getting ready for VBS. This is my third year as director. It is a lot of hard work but the rewards are so awesome. I love to see all the little ones and see their happy smiles. They all want me to see what they have made. I love every second of it.

Went to Walmart today and they were putting out school supplies. Where is the summer going. I will turn around twice and it will be Christmas.

Oh! please don't mention Christmas yet!!! This year is going far too quickly.

Sounds like you and your granddaughter are having a great time. I know she loves visiting you!

I was just telling my Hubby that...we have only been out of school 3 weeks and the retailers have them going back already! I wish they'd let us all relax and enjoy the summer before we have to think about school again.

Hugs,
Robin

I'm looking forward to the day when Noodlebug is old enough to go to VBS. I always enjoyed it as a child.

I know exactly what you mean, there never seems to be enough summer and then once school starts again, well Christmas sneaks up on a person so very quickly.

God bless.

Hello Dear Mary,

You are so right, summer is simply just not long enough! But I must admit I am looking forward to Christmas too!:o) Oh goodness, is it really time for Vacation Bible School already!:o) It seems like just yesterday you were sharing with us all the beautiful times you and the children were having at VBS. I know the kids are all ready to go and I know you are looking forward to it just as much.:o) Enjoy VBS and all those sweet children.

Smiles...

CONNIE'S THOUGHTS FROM THE HEART said...

Dear Mary, I know you are having great fun with your Granddaughter. VBS is always wonderful and I know you are a very good director. My sister did the same thing a couple of weeks ago at her church and she is still talking about it and what a good group of kids they had this year. Hope yours is a great one. Have a happy day dear Mary. connie

I know you will have a great time with VBS...
I taught Kindergarten and we had a
wonderful time learning about the Australian outback and that Jesus Loves us...
to bad that the TRUE meaning of Christmas doesn't begin this early in the year...
