Weekend of Celebrations! (Sarah graduates and Kamryn turns 9!)
It was party central here at the cottage this weekend!
First up Kamryn's 9th birthday party was held here. We have room for the kids to play outside and run around. Nate and Kayleigh had waterballoons, and a slip and slide for the kids, and also a pinata.
Lindsay made the cutest party favors ever! Fun Noodle ponies!
Sunday morning we had church outside! This was on the church property. It was perfect weather. I really liked it!
She wanted a casual party with swing dancing. First though, Tim said a few words and presented her with her diploma!
Then it was time for dancing! Sarah taught Kyle some basic steps and he danced with her at her party! Oh my heart! She was happy and so was I!
Some had never danced before but they picked it up quickly!
We kept it casual and simple as per Sarah's request so we did a few party pizzas and cake.
We enjoyed visiting with friends and watching the young people dance. After it got dark, they moved inside, and we sat out with the garden lights shining, continuing to talk with our friends. It was a lovely end to a busy weekend!
Sarah and I both went to bed exhausted but happy!
Next up, Rachel returns to her school for summer camp ministry. We'll see her again in July for a few weeks, then back to camp for two weeks. Then she graduates! We are excited for her and excited to have her back home for a while!
Oh, and our daughter in law is due this week with baby #3! Can't wait, and Kayleigh is more than ready! Come on Baby!
