I’m taking a break from updates on Jeff–primarily because I don’t have any. My “source of updates” (my mom) is back in Texas, so I’m afraid updates won’t be quite as detailed or as often as they were when my mom was there….
Illinois is always so pretty in the Fall. The leaves really started changing a couple of weeks ago.
The pictures don’t really do it justice (on how pretty it is), but trust me….although the leaves are beautiful, they can be pretty annoying, too. I’ve tried raking, but it really is a lost cause. Instead, we’ll just continue to track leaves and mud into the house, until it freezes consistently.
About a month ago, Jim was trying to find a leak in an underground pipe (on our side of camp). Well, he couldn’t find the main water line, so he decided to dig up our driveway (because he knew it had to “T” somewhere to the water pipe). So, this is what our driveway looked like for about a week!
Earlier this month we had the Annual Great Oaks Banquet. Darryl Strawberry was the keynote speaker…
Those first three photos were taken in a room with good lighting (and with a “professional” camera. The rest of the pictures were taken in the banquet hall, which had HORRIBLE lighting!!
We had about 220-230 people there, which was fine. We invited about 20 people to come (all from our church). They are very supportive of our ministry and Great Oaks.
Now that the banquet is over, Paul can start working on summer camp….for next year!! 🙂
