Behind the Scenes of Worship

Here's a few glimpses from behind the scenes of recording 9Thirty (contemporary) worship these days. For the last two weekends, Parker has been the recording producer, mixing the feed from the two stationary cameras and the mobile camera. I operated a stationary camera in both traditional and contemporary this week and CJ was on the mobile camera while Daryl preached.

Garden Learning

It feels like we learn something new everyday in this gardening adventure. We've learned that sunflowers over 6 feet tall are very susceptible to hard pouring rain (we've lost two that way in the last week). We've learned that we should have staked our lima bean and green bean plants - because they are so heavy with bean growth that they are falling over. 

We've learned that it takes okra a lot longer to grow. We are just getting blooms on these plants that are almost 5 feet tall. 

And finally we've learned if you pick a green jalapeño and leave it on the counter for a few days, it turns red!

Quick Update

We saw the ENT again today and he scheduled Davis for surgery on Tuesday August 18th at the outpatient surgery center for Children in Maitland. Davis will be having his tonsils out and part of his adenoids. Please keep us in your prayers!

Garden Harvest

These are the first green beans we harvested - almost 8 weeks to the day from planting! They were delicious for dinner over the weekend. 

Also Davis' jalapeño peppers are spicy!!! He had them for breakfast with eggs and was in heaven. 
Baba and some others enjoyed them on their burgers for the Fourth.

A Special Visitor

Last Friday our youth director Bree popped by the house to drop off a present for Parker - a kind of congratulations for getting his license last month. She knows him well - he loves his new Bucs magnet!

Fourth of July

We spent the Fourth celebrating Abby's birthday with the Hills. Daryl made his awesome burgers. And the kids got to do pop its and sparklers too. And then the grownups played - A Game for Good Christians - and let Parker play too. And he won a round!!

Davis Birthday Fun

Davis picked the first jalapeños from his pepper plants on his birthday! 

Since we had two tape two worship services on Thursday, Davis spent the day 
with his friend Tim, who bought him a Lego Star Wars set as a present. Tim's mom Amy 
made cupcakes with the kids to celebrate Davis' birthday! 

Later we FaceTimed with Grandmommy and she watched Davis open his present from her - a cool new Wii remote all his own! 

Then Davis got to open the rest of his presents. From Aunt Dawn and Uncle Daniel and the cousins, 20 feet of LED lights to get strung around his bunk bed to give light to his desk and dresser. 

And from Mama and Baba and the brothers - new flip flops, a cool mug that you can build Legos on, and a Baby Yoda doll. 

It's so hard to believe that he is 10 - all of our kids are double digits now! 
Happy Birthday Davis!
