"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates." Deuteronomy 4: 6-9

End of the Year Small Group Party

We wrapped up another amazing year with our high school small group on Sunday night. This year we have had such a great group of kids. We spent the majority of our year together going through the book of Revelation, and we were pleasantly surprised when they would show up each study eager to discuss what they had read and ask all kinds of questions. It really made for a fun year for Matt and I! A party with our high schoolers wouldn't be complete without food! I have learned that especially the boys in our group...they can eat up LOTS of food! :) So I went with 3 full pans of baked ziti, salad, and garlic bread. What's great about this group is how close they all are. The majority of them hang out at school and church and our house is full of laughter when they all are around! The girls are quite the bakers. They brought cupcakes, brownies, and cookies. Carson's favorites!
Matt can easily revert back to his teen years when the boys are over. The boys have been into making "spud guns" (very interesting, right?) but they don't just shoot potatoes out of these guns, they shoot whatever they can find and decided to set up a little game in our backyard. They were attempting to shoot small corks at these boxes sitting on top of Matt's canoe.
Laura and Alex watch from our boys playset... But after getting fussed at by our next door neighbor after a piece of cork flew into his yard, we decided it was time to go inside and play another favorite...SPOONS! This year we have had 3 senior girls in our group. They have been in our group for a few years actually, and we will miss them so much! Matt and I feel so blessed to have been apart of this group this year!
