I'm still working on catching up here and so there's going to be a whirlwind of posts on here! Hold on tight!:)
May continued to be an incredibly busy and full month! We had one celebration after another it seemed like, and all at around the same time!!
Friday evening, started the exciting cycle with Ashlee's Fox college graduation from UCI!:)
The next thing on our schedule, Saturday, was Dad's birthday! A few weeks earlier Mom had gotten a call from Texas. Plans were made and the surprise was set, but we didn't know if Dad, being the smart guy he is, would figure it out! To throw off his sense of direction, Mom blindfolded him, took him out of the house for the day, drove around for several hours and ran a few errands. At the appointed time they arrived at the restaurant....
The next day, Sunday, was Caytlin's graduation! There was a lot to do that afternoon after church and it was neat to see how the Lord provided-verything came together smoothly!
Our good, family friend, Mr. Keller, a chaplain for the Pomona Police, gave a challenging and encouraging address on seeking to glorify Christ with every part of your life!
Switching the tassel! Congratulations, Class of 2015!!!!! You made it Caytlin!!!:D
A picture with some friends who came, Maureen McNabb and Kristie and Joanna Tang!:) We miss those girls!
Very proud of our sister!:) Unfortunately at both the boys and Caytlin's graduations we have been so busy we didn't get to take any family pictures but hopefully we actually can get around to doing that one of these years!
Nothing like freedom, a slide and lots of energy after a packed weekend!:D
Monday morning we continued our adventure, driving Grandma Campbell back to the airport!
One last picture all together
A morning selfie of us three sisters....:)This was the first picture we got with graduate since her ceremony!
Dad telling some stories before we had to say goodbye....It was pretty neat to see how Dad looked like his mom and carried some of her traits even though he never met her till recently!
It was one of those special treats when we didn't order off the value menu....;) As always happens time passed quicker than we would have like it to, and we all piled back into the van to head to the airport!
A last hug! We were sad to see her go, and enjoyed meeting Grandma Campell, finally! We hope to see her again sometime!:)
Well, if you thought we were done, we're weren't! We had a rest for a few days and then Thursday was another graduation for a friend, Rebekah Bailey!:) We had met the whole family while working at Nehemiah this past January! This time just the eldest 5 went, as it was 2 hours away and would be a late evening!;)
Heading out to Temecula! Long rides in the car often teach a lot of character and you sure appreciate the scenery!;)
We had finally come to the end of our celebrations, and yet we were still extremely busy as the guys and I would be leaving for Ironwood in a few short days, spending ten weeks out there.:)
He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.
