The past few weeks have been more than a little entertaining. Or trying. Depending on your perspectives. Near the beginning of the month, a friend and I went to one of the local farmers’ markets and a chalk art festival. I took a bunch of pictures…here’s a few of my favorites…

And a few from the Chalk Art Festival…


In other news, J and I have been Staff Sergeants at FBC’s Vacation Bible School this week. It has, in a word, been exhausting. It’s also been fun. We have a few “needy” kids who are very vocal if they don’t get enough attention. But it’s been good for us to be around such high energy small people for a week. Tomorrow is the last day, and while we won’t be missing the early mornings, we will be missing our little recruits. On Sunday night, our trusty little Saturn started making some disturbing noises and we’re pretty sure one of the lifters is going out. This pretty much totals duct tape car – since fixing a lifter would cost more than the car is worth. And we didn’t have any time or money this week to procure a new car. We asked to be put on the prayer chain at our church (we only had one car to start with so we were in big trouble without one) and within 24 hours, a very generous family had offered us a 94 Taurus for free. It is an enormous answer to prayer since 1. we needed an automatic, 2. we needed it to have an air conditioner, and 3. we needed it to be very modestly priced. And you don’t get much more modestly priced than free. We are supposed to pick it up tomorrow evening and then get the title switched sometime in the next week. But we are going white water rafting on Saturday so we’ll get to put it to the test while we drive up to Wenatchee. The DOXA band is playing on Sunday morning and DOXA is on Sunday night – so be sure to show up and help us worship!
