Bekah’s graduation went very well.  It was a day she will always remember.

Rebekah Jean Estell 2015 Graduate

The reception hall was beautiful,  all the songs, verses, and speeches went well.  We had a wonderful visit with family most of whom stayed a week and were here to also see Hannah and Jeremiah’s baptism.    Jame’s summer factory job went very well. He gave his 2 week notice in order to come on the summer loop with us, and they said “When you get back give us a call.”  They wanted him back even if only for 3 weeks before leaving again for college.

We had a wonderful week of family camp in Kentucky. I had 40-50 children for 6 hours of teaching and 3 hours of crafts!! Thankfully the heat wave broke and we had cooler weather.    Sunday we  shared during the 9:30 Sunday school hour at Grace Community Church in Marietta.
It was so good to see so many friends while we were on our 3 week loop.  It was a good trip, but it was filled with some mighty hard goodbyes.  Our seminar at Grace went very well, thank you all so much for your prayers.  We are now safely back at home and hope to stay in Michigan and the surrounding states from now till December.  (except for a quick trip to take James and Bekah to college in West Virginia)
This year holds many changes with James and Bekah at College.  We will still carry on with the creation seminars – we will just stay local.  I am hoping one of our local things will be putting together a creation based nature center or creation room at a school, church or camp.  I am so wanting to paint murals and make more ark models,build a larger Mt St Helens model… Our storage room is full of cool fossils just waiting to be put on display… I thought by now we would be settled on our own land building a nature center…. but all in God’s timing.  (sidenote- as many of you all know, Brian and I had to wait 8 years before God blessed us with children.  There was many a day I thought I would never get to be a Mom.  Now I’m glad we had to wait so long- or most of them would all be grown now.  God knows best.
