Baptisms! (and other things)

 What a fun couple of weeks we have had!  Our nature journal time last week involved muddy slopes, hunting for snails and worms, and a good old fashioned snail race.
 Our whole family went to the Union for lunch to meet up with an old college friend and his family.  The kids hit it off right away, and it was a treat to catch up with this couple.  If they lived in the area, I think we would be great friends!
 Over the weekend we camped at our good friends' house with 4 other friends and their families.  The ladies had a great time sleeping inside while our servant-hearted husbands slept out in the tents/hammocks with all the kids.  What an incredible group of husbands we have...we are blessed!
And this week couldn't have started any better.  Malia and Josie decided that they were ready to be baptized in front of our church and share why they want to follow Jesus!  Parents and friends came just to be there to celebrate with them.  My heart felt so full.  I am grateful for God's pursuit of their hearts, and their openness to His leadership.  I pray that that would only deepen as they continue to grow up.

AND, we got to see The Piano Guys live at McCain this week.  It was a girls' date.  We all thoroughly enjoyed the show and even Aliza sat through the 2 1/2 hour show fully engaged.
It was a good week. :)
