Summit and other happenings...

 Birthday dinner for Angie and I with dear friends!  We love Happy Valley. :)
The girls' friend wrote a play and the kids were able to practice lines, put together costumes and props, reserve a stage, add music (Malia), and perform their show in the middle of tornadic weather.
Dez's birthday!
 Painting the gorgeous "worm moon" we had a few weeks ago.
And what is becoming our annual trip to Summit!  This year, Aliza and Ezra came along.  They did awesome, I can't believe how well the trip there and back went.  It totally helped to have Nate's parents caravaning with us. 
Nate's birthday.
The ride home involved an accident and the 8th seat in our new van (Clifford :) getting used.
No one was hurt, our friends van was totaled (which has a happy thing), and the everyone traveled great even considering the full vehicles.
 Summit was a sweet time of connecting with God, friends, and students.  We are grateful for the opportunity to go!
