Can't Top This!
This past week has almost been an overload of blessings with the play and having most of our family with us. In the above picture all the kids, except for baby Daniel, take a Popsicle break in back of our house as they watch the pond out back get chemically treated for algae and bugs. Interesting stuff!
After the final show Sunday night, trying to get Curtis to sit still long enough for a group picture of us and all the grand kids proved impossible. So, here we have an "action" picture of us and our grand kids.
It was also really nice to have my sister Becky visiting with us this week. I think she has come out every year for the play and stayed the week after so we could have some good visit time. If she lived here, she'd be up on the stage as part of the cast. I guess it runs in the family.
God blessed us with another wonderful experience with every part of this year's production. We had about two thousand in attendance over the four nights with Sunday night being the largest crowd of over six hundred. We had five hundred and twenty family units that registered for a free DVD of the play, and we are receiving some wonderful comments from everyone who attended. We've been praying about this for months, and God has answered our prayers. The follow-up will start in about three to four weeks as we get our finished DVD's of the play back from the company that is making the copies for us.
And add to all that getting to be with family for several days and you have the makings of one incredible week. God is good!
