Luau, missions & sheep

This week we are planning our wind-up at Soul Kids...a Luau!!  Sunday (June 22) is our last official Sunday before the summer scheduling starts.  The Soul Kids theatre will be transformed into a Hawaiian Island full of activities, games, food & tons of fun!  We'll start our morning off with some worship & prayer.

Also, this summer Soul will be having their first ever DAY CAMP!!!  July 21-25 will be our African themed Soul Kids Day Camp!  Those plans have already begun and tie into the entire theme of the summer...missions & missionaries.  Over the summer we'll have a missionary, Aimee Heyer, come & share with Soul Kids what she's doing in Africa.  There are too many other things for me to list right now, so keep posted by reading this blog every week!

Last night our family went to the Red River Ex.  We had so much fun!  Rides, mini donuts, stinky sheep, cotton candy, more rides, chapati (an African flat bread...yummy!), fudge & more rides!  Honestly, it's one of the most sugary nights we have, but what a great family night.  There's nothing like feeling sick from the rides, eating fudge & going on more rides!!  

As summer starts, routine changes, kids are out of school, don't forget to be a family still.  EnJOY your kids.  Ours are 12, 14 & seems like they were just toddlers... Put God first, then your will not regret the time you take to pour into your kids.  In Isaiah 40:11..."He tends His flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in His arms and carries them close to His heart; He gently leads those that have young."  God leads you as you raise your child(ren).  And, "...for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him." Matthew 6:8  Ask Him how to raise, lead, teach, instruct & play with you child(ren).  Learn from the best Father...God!

Be blessed!
