On Thursdays in July, our church had Summer Safaris for the kids. It’s a little like a mini-VBS, but it focused on places that our missionaries and Into All the World Teams travel — Brazil, Thailand, Peru, and New York. The girls got a passport and got to learn about the countries, games they play, foods they eat, etc. They had a fantastic time!
This past week, my dear, dear friend Alyssa was in for the week, and I got to see her THREE times! It was so fun.
Monday night she and I went to dinner ALONE and then for a walk.
Tuesday her kids came over to play
And Thursday her big kids got to go to Summer Safari with my kids while Alyssa and I ran errands (which, incidentally, was something we loved to do together in college). I felt so spoiled having her here for so long! And we managed to plan a little mama getaway in September!
What a treasure our friendship is to me!
