Today was a fun day for us. One of Sarah's friends from work, Chrissy, came to church. Chrissy brought her hubby and two young children. We invited them to stay after church and eat dinner with us. We also invited another family with five children so there would be playmates for everyone. It was so nice to eat dinner with babies!

Of course, in the rush of preparing dinner, I forgot to take pictures. We had the usual...Texas brisket, sourdough rolls, green beans and mashed potatoes. I forgot to take the slaw out of the fridge! For dessert we had chocolate chip cookies and sourdough chocolate cake. Nothing new, just all my old standbys.
Since it was too far to come home before returning for evening church, we played badminton, sang through "Camp Kookawacka," and watched a DVD from the girls' week at camp. It was fun.
Ruthie pulled a pew up to the piano and played through her repertoire.
At some point, most of us went back to the teen room and took a nap.
Here's Sarah. Allen and Mike were playing chess.
When we got home, I made two loaves of sourdough bread in my new cast iron loaf pan. It was delicious. The cast iron made the crust crustier and the inside chewier. Just perfect!

This is our last week of vacation. It's a busy week for Mike...30 hours of teaching. We are back in drought condition. No rain for 2 weeks. We have a slight chance for a light shower tomorrow, then no sign of rain until Thursday. Our raspberries seem to like the drought since they are larger and tastier than usual.

Pastor's sermon today was very thought-provoking. It was about the consequences of a nation that embraces homosexuality. He taught us that Sodom and Gomorah didn't turn wicked overnight.

Many blessings ~ Kathie
