Friday Five: Looking Forward

I like having things to look forward to. So to add a theme to my weekly items of randomness, here's what we're getting excited about:

1. Nick and Brittany's wedding. My little brother is all grown up! He couldn't have picked a better girl, and we're so glad to add Brittany to the family. They get married on the 26th, but this weekend is the guys' camping trip/bachelor party, and next Friday is the girls' bachelorette festivities.

2. Landon and Avery's birthdays. Landon turns one on May 31, and Avery turns three on July 3, so this year we're actually having two birthday parties in June! L's party will be pretty low key (mostly family), but we're gonna actually invite some of Avery's friends to hers this year. It'll still be relatively low key since we're just having it at home, but we might be crazy to have multiple three year olds here at the same time!

3. Children's ministry happenings. We promote kids to the next grade level the first Sunday in June, so summer time is our kick off for new curriculum and teachers. I'm excited about both! And then between VBS in June and preteen camp in July, I can't wait to see how God works in the lives of our kids this summer and on into the new school year.

4. Vacations. Ahhh, the best part. We're taking a big trip to Tennessee with Matt's family in July, and we can't wait to relax in a gorgeous cabin in the Smoky Mountains. Plus, everybody's so spread out geographically that we're way overdue for time with everyone together! And then in August we'll make our annual trip back out to West Texas for campmeeting with my family.

5. Summer days.  Including (but not limited to): drive-in movies, Ranger games, evening walks, popsicles, sleeping in (haha!), playing in sprinklers, sewing, playing games, and just being together.

What are you looking forward to?

My family is also going to the Smoky Mountains region in July. Small world! I can't wait! I've never been in that region but I heard it's beautiful.
