MEMBERS AT LAST!!

We are members!!!

Kenny and I went through membership classes at the church he grew up going to and where we're getting married. We finished the classes a month ago, but we were accempted into the congregation officially today. It was cool. I've never been a member of a church before. The church I grew up attending is where I was baptized, but somewhere along the way my mom decided to go back to her childhood church, which is where I always envisioned getting married, but happens to be an hour away from where we live. So because we plan on staying in this area for the long haul, it made sense to become members (plus we save a few bucks by being members when we get married) and eventually raise our kids (yay!!!) in that church as well. Anyway, we are now members. And it feels good to belong!

This is the last day of vacation. And man did it fly. They always do. I really got a lot done on this break including wedding stuff and household stuff. I feel good about it!

I'm on my way outside to play with the puppy and pick up the messes in the backyard that she made with our recycling bins. I am SO thankful for this vacation. My brain needed the break from teaching. I'm not ready to go back to work, especially with all the end-of-the-year things that are coming up which require more thinking and preparing, but I have no choice, and like I said, I am completely thankful for the brain rest. It does a body good:)

Yay! Church members!! I grew up in a Baptist Church located just outside the city where I currently live. My parents still attend there my Dad is a deacon in the church. That will always be "my" church, although I don't attend regularly like I should. Good for you and Kenny!! (...are we already thinking about kids? Hmmm??)
