Today I am thankful for . . .
568. The gift of Meeting Face-to-Face! Today I met a fellow blogger face-to-face for the first time. She and I have been blogging "together" for about 5 years or so . . . I think she's blogged longer than I have, but we "met" online about 5 years ago when she entered I contest I was having on my blog. It was so much fun to meet her and her family . . . I hope I can do this with some other blogging friends I've made, but with distance, time and money, it may not happen here on this earth. While my time with Michelle was brief, it was a blessing that I will always remember. Michelle's blog can be found at http://www.northofthe49.com/blog/
Me with my friend:)569. The gift of Free Bowling. After our meeting and lunch, I took the boys swimming at one of their favourite pools, followed by free bowling! Yes, FREE bowling! There is a program that runs during the months of July and August in our local city (and many cities across North America), which offers free bowling for kids. Parents can join too, for a minimal fee. We had a lot of fun, even though none of us were very good. Hopefully by the end of the summer we will have developed some skills. To check out the free bowling in your area, follow this link: www.kidsbowlfree.com

I'm pretty sure I was talking here . . .
570. The gift of Being Involved in Vacation Bible School. The boys and I took part in Vacation Bible School this year in various forms . . . I worked at the Registration Desk, Mitchell was an actor named "Hunter" in the opening and closing skits, and Ty was there as an attendee for the last time. Next year he is too old to participate, so he'll get to enjoy being a worker as well.
Here is Mitchell as Hunter, with the other characters,
sister Madi and Island Lady, Kamelei.
