the summer is almost over already!

So I just realized that my last post was at the end of April! The month of May was crazy busy with graduation preparations. I had 9 graduates this year which doesn't sound like a lot but this is the largest KICS graduating class so far. I had to track down a place to get new caps and gowns (ended up getting them from Uganda!) plan the ceremony, take pictures, finish all the final transcripts, etc. and prepare to be gone for 2 months. It was very hectic but fun.

We just spent the month of June in California with Matt's family. It was a really fun time. We were able to speak at a few churches and meet many new people. We spent a day at Disneyland and lots of time with family and friends. We are now in MI for the month of July visiting my family. We are booked to speak at a few churches here as well. We will be attending our friends (2 KICS teachers!) wedding in Indiana. Emma is going to be the flower girl and I am the photographer. Several of the teachers are flying in for the wedding. One all the way from England! We just love our KICS family and we are so blessed to be a part of Douglas and Kerry's day. My brother is also coming to visit from NY so we will be able to spend an entire week with them.

In other news...Emma is reading like crazy! She is 4 1/2 and is reading at a 2nd-3rd grade level. Insane! I am so glad that we are switching her to a new preschool this year. I think she would be completely bored at the old one. She is having so much fun with family and friends. We had root beer floats out on the boat tonight and Emma caught a fish. I just love it here. So relaxing!
