Snapshots From My Week

 I had a full week, as is the norm in my life these days.  Much of it is driving people to work, etc, but some of it is just fun stuff.  

Yesterday afternoon, after our fellowship meal at church, there was an airsoft game that took place in our woods and pasture.  The rest of us enjoyed the cool air and a campfire in our fire ring.  As dinner came we did the easy thing and ate salad and roasted hotdogs and the biggest marshmallows ever!

As the evening wore on, a couple of guys from church, started playing the guitar and mandolin, singing songs that one of them wrote.  Such wonderful, worshipful songs written from the scriptures, and not recorded anywhere!  This man is leaving soon with his family to return to Ireland where they work as missionaries.  We've loved having their family as part of our church family for 4 months now.  We'll miss them terribly!

 I told you about the pumpkin carving and bonfire that took place here this week too.  So much fun....

 We went to a fire and safety field trip on Friday at the Fire Company where my Dad is now the chaplain.  Look who volunteered to be the patient.  They like to show the kids what would happen if they needed attention from medical personnel.  Sarah was being a child who had fallen and hit her head.  Statistic show that it is more likely now for kids to be in an accident of some kind than to have a fire at their home.

 Here she is in the ambulance being assessed.  She had a lot of fun!

I leave you with a photo taken from my car window while I was at a stop sign.  I pass this house multiple times in a week and just love it.  Right now with the leaves changing on the two trees at the front of the house, it is delightful!

Sounds like a full week there at Creekside Cottage...full of blessing!
That house is beautiful to begin with, but autumn foliage makes everything look better!
Hope you enjoy another week of blessing...

Thanks for entertaining my kiddos twice this week. They enjoyed both times very much. I'm sorry to have missed last evening's times. It sounds delightful. Much happening at Hospitality Lane at the moment. :-)

Oh it's such a darling little stone house. At first, I though brick because I've heard that PA has lots of brick homes.

Your fellowship yesterday sounded delightful...what a great way to be together and continue times of praise and worship.

How wonderful your night of fellowship sounds.

It looks like a wonderful night and just my cup of tea. I would have loved to hear the worship songs, particularly.

And it you take this sentence out of context:

"Here she is in the ambulance being assessed. She had a lot of fun!"

It sounds hysterical. ha!

Love the pics from your week!! Papa Bob is a chaplain, is that new?


  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We spent Saturday, doing things around the house, and then we swam. Kyle and Sarah left after that...
