Year in Review

Because I was gone for six days (between Christmas and New Year’s) I missed my opportunity to do a “Year in Review” before we rolled over to 2014.

So….it’s a little bit late. Here are the highlights for 2013:

January:

I got a ticket: 😦

This was my FAVORITE month–I got to go to Illinois!!! (Where my heart lives)!!! 🙂

June:

My life was CONSUMED with Vacation Bible School!!!! There’s no way I can recap that–trust me, it was fun, rewarding, exhausting, and worth it!

We also went to Youth Camp: here, here, and here.

July:

My other favorite month of the year (besides APRIL)!! We went on Mission Trip–

We met life-long friends (Kris and Heidi) and I got to Jamie and his family….

(August was a hard month for me, in regards to ministry at the camp–Children’s Camp was terrible for me and I really struggled in ministry during that month)….

August was also my birthday! We went to San Antonio for a little “mini vacay”

September:

I wrote a couple of good blog posts:here and here

We went to a Baylor football game with Heidi, Kris, and Aubrey. They beat Buffalo, 70+ to 13, I think. It was also 110+ degrees outside!

We also immersed ourselves in all things football: Middle School football, Freshmen football, and Varsity football…..

October:

One of my favorite posts:

We had National (Texas) Night Out at church and Fall Festival (another rough month of ministry for me). The Children’s Committee ALL work full-time, everyday, so it was up to me (and Paul) to do the entire Fall Festival by myself….it was hard and not something I look forward to again.

November:

November was a SLOW month in “bloggy world” because I only wrote ONE POST!! I can’t believe it…..but, here it is:

December:

Between November and December, I spent a lot of time going to Waco….4 times in a one month period, to be exact

Thanksgiving was so late that those pictures ended up in December….

2013 was kind of a rough year for me, in ministry and in marriage. We laughed a lot, we learned a lot, we (I) cried a lot, we prayed a lot, we cared a lot, we fought a lot, but, we survived and came out better on the other side!

Here’s to 2014!!
