This weekend we had a party to celebrate the fact that Britt finished seminary. To be honest, I don't think a party is enough for all the work he did - I wanted fireworks and spontaneous choreographed singing and dancing focusing on his diligent work and sacrifice. Since that wasn't an option, we had hotdogs instead. But it was pretty fun.
I made little tank tops for the girls that said "I love you" in Greek and Hebrew (Greek for Charissa, Hebrew for Verity).
We had LOTS of people show up for the party ...
... and lots of cars.
We went through over 80 hotdogs that night! One friend even showed us how to eat when your hands are full of children.
A certain baby bundle couldn't handle all the fun and she conked out about halfway through it. It's funny to me that Verity can still fall asleep anywhere. (And I know my mom looks kind of sad or worried in this picture, but she really was having fun.)
The kids were enjoying some basketball, even though most of them couldn't reach the goal.
It was a great night for us just to relax and celebrate 6 years of hard work, sacrifice, commitment and faithfulness. Now on to the next challenge!
