On July 30, we went to McPherson, Kansas for the Kansas State Holiness Association camp meeting. Even though we missed half the camp by going on Thursday, it was a special camp with God's presence in the services. My sister, Brenda Owens and her daughter, Rebekah came for the first time. My sister Marlene DeOrnellis came for her second year in a row!
I enjoyed sister time with Brenda and Marlene. This night, we had on the same colors.We get a lot of walking exercise on this Central Christian College campus.
Don, Valerie and Brooke Quales were the song evangelists. We enjoyed their singing very much.
We spent some time over at my parents' house. They get to see Charissa a lot more than we do.
We also went over to Baxter Springs to see my sister Sherry.
Grandpa read Charissa a book.
Grandpa and Tim played with Charissa's letters...
Emily and Charissa had their hair combed alike.
Charissa gave some great hugs!
Charissa loves to be read to.
We went to church on Wednesday night at Joplin C of G (H). Notice that Emily's camera did not know what to do with the humidity there!
We wore our matching clothes that day! I have added on a ruffle to Charissa's jumper to help her get more use out of her matching clothes!
Rowen had his hands full with people he loves!
Tim and Brenda on the morning that the Albertsons made the breakfast meal.
We taught Grandpa Scoles the Qwirkle game with our travel version.
The in-laws added in.
Rex and Wanda with their anniversary cake.
Tasha and Caleb, Sherry's kids, were able to come for this meal, so there were 21 of us.
Rex and Wanda with their "Actual 'Day of' their 60th wedding anniversary cake."
The next day, we came home and started resting up from our wonderful vacation! :)
