Our usual 4th of July celebrations were somewhat dampened by the weather-- very cool temps and horizontal rain!
So the first big happening of July was Vacation Bible School. The kids really enjoyed the theme of "Investigation Destination".
I led the songs and assisted with a class. Dwayne drove one of the church vans. And the kids just had fun.
|In the thick of things!|
Many hands make light work!
Dwayne took on the awesome chore this year of cutting the kernels off the cobs. Last year when I did this part, my hands ached for several days afterward, so yea Dwayne!!!
He also loaded the jars and started the pressure canners.
This freed me up to take pictures!! (ha ha!) Actually, I helped the kids outside and helped with the canners inside.
|Seven quarts in each canner, an hour and a half for every batch!|
So now we move on to the birthday...
|What a funny bunch!|
