Hot weekend

June 29, 2008 Categories: Faith , Movies | 6 Comments  

99 degrees yesterday. 99 degrees today. Which made it a perfect weekend to spend one afternoon at the lake, and the other in an air-conditioned theater.

We headed up to the lake yesterday, bringing lunch and a van-load of floaties. Another family from our church was there, too, so Natalie was able to swim with a good friend, and we were able to get to know her parents a little better.

I’ve been having a hard time getting involved at our new church. Kevin’s not even attending much. I’ve posted before about our history with churches, and I don’t want to get into all of that again. I just wish we could find a church where politics and staying in a denominational bubble weren’t the norm.

Anyway, it was nice to get to know another couple from church. We’ve met some really nice people, and the children’s ministry has welcomed our children with open arms. I suppose that will have to be enough for right now.

Today, Mom and I took the kids to see Kung Fu Panda (my review). The kids loved it, and I enjoyed myself. And it was cool. What more can you ask for, right?

    Amen! Me, too.

    I am glad to read that you had so much fun with your family this weekend. Family time is always such a blessing, isn’t it?

    Sounds fun. All except for the 99 degree part. Whew!

    I know all too well the feelings you are describing about finding a church home. *Hugs*

    We are currently church-less. We have such a hard time finding one we feel we fit in, and sticking to it. Sigh.

    I love hot weather!

    Lawanda – it was good, wasn’t it?

    Eileen – I like summer, but once it gets past 90, it’s just too hot for me!
