Connor Is On His Way

He left from LAX this morning to go to Zurich for a week of fun with Auntie Pam, Uncle Markus, Nickolas and Julia.  

Then he is flying to Czech Republic to meet up with a group from our church.  They are going to Trinec, Czech Republic to lead a group of almost 50 10-14 year olds in an English speaking VBS program.  

We are so excited for this opportunity for him.  Trusting that God will have a big impact on the children and the team.  
We are going to miss him a lot!!  
The house is going to be much quieter without Connor around  -- no drums or electric guitar for almost three weeks.......

As we drove home from the airport I was thinking about not having to remind him to pick up, turn his socks right side out, take care of the laundry, etc.
Really starting to miss him, you know?    

We pulled into the driveway and opened the garage door and found -- 

Vintage Connor!!

Amps left out, mic on the ground, 

chairs not put away, guitar left out.

YEP, WE REALLY ARE  (really, truly, all joking aside) GOING TO MISS HIM.

Fun 4th!

I usually forget to take pictures during the festivities.  
I did get a few before things got started, though.............

Sarah and her badmitten skills.

Daisy relaxing before her nervous breakdown.  She doesn't care for fireworks, firecrackers, or any other loud popping noises.

 Hanging out....

Firecracker princess

Love watching big kids swing!

They like watching, too!
