Boy this month has flown by!! After having surgery this past week I thought I’d keep today’s post simple and share some photos and memories.
My birthday is at the beginning of October and my only “birthday wish” was to hit up my favorite campgrounds (a few hours away from our neck of the woods) where you can camp and also ride four wheelers.
Although we sold our camper last year I still wanted to go for the four wheeler riding so we took a day trip the first weekend of this month. Maybe next year we’ll bring a tent along and make a weekend trip out of it but with the busy Summer we had on the house remodel I felt blessed just to squeeze in the day we got for this!! And with Nebraska’s crazy weather you take advantage of what you can, the weather was in the 70s that day!!!
We celebrated (our oldest daughter) Paige’s 16th birthday with food, family, friends, and limo rides the next weekend!
The third weekend of October our junior high youth group headed up to Camp Comeca—this is our fourth (maybe fifth?) year with this camp. Loads of fun and growing faith!! My two youngest kiddos (McKenzie and Warren) both got to go!
And Mc squeezed in some baking that Sunday afternoon. We love this time of year—leaves changing colors, baking, cozy sweaters and warm blankets!!
This past weekend our family hosted our annual Fall party. This is the fifth year we’ve done this—lots of family and friends, smoked pork loin, yummy potluck style side-dishes, hayrack rides, fellowship—quite a blessing!!
And this last weekend of October I plan to rest!! I had surgery on Wednesday which I wrote about in last Friday’s post so now it’s time to recuperate!
One of my best friends had given me a gift bag full of goodies the day before surgery and attached scripture to each item:
The one scripture that has really spoken to me is this:
I’m gonna wrap up by leaving you with the same encouragement as well!!
Have a blessed weekend!!
