We Gather Together

Our church sponsored a community picnic yesterday afternoon.

There were lots of games...

Face-painting...

Some were more than happy to sit and get their faces painted...

Others were not...

A pie-eating contest...

Praise and worship...

Balloon animals...

Cotton candy...

And most importantly, time spent together with family and friends...

Hi Amber,

That looked like so much fun! I love family functions at church or anywhere! :) Everyone looked like they had such a great time!

I read your post below and it brought tears to my eyes because I know exactly the heart with which you wrote it because I too have had those same little words from God to embrace the moment with my kids! And I have such fond memories of catching fireflies at dusk as a child and then with my children and even the late night swims because of "that pleading look"! Anyway, enjoyed your post and I'll be back to visit! (I love finding fellow homeschoolers too)!

Thank you for stopping by my blog also and for the kind comment on my bathroom redo!

Have a great week!
Tammy
