Miscellany Monday

My students call themselves The Rugged Kids. Yeah, they're cool.
We are officially done with The Rugged Kids Cafe! It was a great camp fundraiser.
Our most popular item? The Green Monster Smoothie!

Ched 'R' Peppers should never come without a pepper! Sad day, Sonic.

My mom makes the best salsa in the world. She uses her garden grown tomatoes and cans it all summer long. Well, I got tired of waiting on this season's crop and made my own using this recipe. It's pretty good. It went well with our enchiladas.

I made my students my favorite enchiladas and they LOVED them. Definitely give them a try if you haven't!

After consuming crazy amounts of enchiladas, we had some live band karaoke at the church. This may have including 1000 Miles by Vanessa Carlton and Only Hope from A Walk to Remember. David was thrilled.

This past week, our church had Kids Bible Camp in parks and home in four separate neighborhoods around Austin. I took pictures and video each night and it was awesome to just observe and capture how God worked through that time! 
Also, I worked for hours trying to put a decent edited video together and failed miserably each time. David graciously volunteered to take care of it for me and did a fantastic job!

On Saturday we invited all of the children from Kids Bible Camp to the church for a big celebration service. We had free food, lots of songs, silly skits, puppets, and shared the gospel.

(practicing a skit)

At the very end we surprised all the kids with a giant water balloon fight! It was seriously so fun (even though none of the children listened to me, and they still threw the balloons at my head.) I was so grateful to all of the students who gave up their Saturday morning to come help us fill up 1000 water balloons! 

Sadly, yesterday I missed out on spending Father's Day with my daddy and I missed a surprise party for my grandma's 70th birthday. I'm so grateful for video messaging and phones that I was still able to communicate with both of them! 

Oh, and I'm definitely sending this card late. It's so perfect! My daddy still tells me I'm his favorite oldest daughter. 

Happy Monday, y'all! 


  1. you have had a busy week!

    i'll send you my address so you can send me some of that salsa. :-)

  2. Read your guest blog today on Annie's blog....absolutely perfect and so what I needed to hear. As the perpetualy single girl who is forever a bridesmaid,I have had these same feelings. And I find it even harder when I seem not to fit into any group at church--beyond the college group, but not in a couple. This is an are that the Church really seems to let slip through the cracks. Glad I am not the only one dealing with this! Your blog was great!


  3. what a busy, beautiful life you lead! :)
    i know i always say this, but so wish we lived closer!

    love you!

  4. I love it! You are making a great difference in their lives!

    P.S. We had enchiladas last night! :)
