Nathan and Melanie hosted an amazing campfire-hot dog roast-s’mores-fellowship in the country recently. They invited friends and family and so there was quite a group of us.
Nathan had a special activity for the children. He had a list of trivia questions relating to the adults in the group, so the kids went around, asking the different people if they were the person in the question (ie: who grew up in Indonesia as a missionary’s kid or who was friends with the soldiers at the end of World War II?). It was an awesome way for the kids to learn to interact with the adults.
The fellowship was great, the food delicious, and the temperatures warm until the sun set. 🙂

Fifteen years ago, the unthinkable and horrible happened. Thousands of lives were lost. Our hearts ache with you. We still remember, and we care. Praying for those affected today! We are standing with you.
Love, The Maxwells

Mom’s birthday week was busy since we were trying to get work things wrapped up and prepare for going to Colorado. I didn’t get to posting pictures from her party just then, but I am now. The little cousins’ personalities are coming out and are so adorable. This house rings with lots of activity when everyone gathers!
We had a delightful evening celebrating God’s gift of Mom to us.
