I took Jackson and Mia to the library to sign up for the summer reading program on Friday afternoon. Little did I know the program starts at 2 years old, so we signed Parker up too. Jackson has already read 2 chapter books since he's been out of school. Some of my favorite times are just the 2 of us sitting outside on the porch swing reading our books. Jeremy has an aversion to the written word, so I'm glad Jackson is a book worm like me. Mia is doing extremely well with her reading. She checked out some 1st and 2nd grade level readers and didn't need much help at all. When the kids fill up their book list we can turn them back in to the library and they will get a T-shirt and a ticket to the end of summer magic show.

Parker, Windsor Grace, Mia, and Maggie at the block party.Grace Life Church of the Shoals. They are studying the road to salvation paved with the gospel using the theme "The Romans Road Crew". They have road construction stuff everywhere and it looks great! This is Parker's first year to go and his is so excited to be a "big kid". We picked up Jackson's friends Dawson and Max this morning and I dropped them all off. As we were driving and the kids were all talking about who they hoped would be there, I was just talking to God and asking Him to speak to their hearts this week. I know they will have fun everyday, but I also hope that God will stir a desire for Him in them. Faith comes through hearing, and I know they will be taught truths from the Bible this week. Jackson will go to kid's camp next week, and I hope VBS will just be a preperation for his soul to delve deeper into God's word when they get to camp.
