My Cup Runneth Over

After yesterday's post, I am sure some of you were wondering why we would take a two hour drive to go visit our son and nephew at church camp if they are both homesick. Wouldn't that just make them more homesick? Well, we actually had a reason for going...I'm not that crazy to drive for four hours round-trip for a one hour visit.

So, let me fill you in...

Last week while we were in Branson, both Quinn and Ashton made the decision to be baptized. Quinn said he wanted to do it while at church camp and said he didn't mind if Ashton did it at that time too. So, we started the plans in motion to make sure we would be able to be witness to this wonderful event (and so we could drive Ashton there since she isn't part of the camp).

Our youth minister, Brian Plumb, baptized both the kids. He is such a fantastic youth minister. We are so blessed to have him in our lives. His wife, Shannon, is also fantastic. In fact, she was my photographer, so I could actually be part of the event, instead of behind the camera. (You can meet the Plumb Family by clicking HERE.)

My parents came with us and Tony's parents made the trip too. It was such a surprise that his parents came, but I am so, so thankful that they were there.

I am so proud of both of my kids. Tony and I have been hugely blessed by these two magnificent little gifts in our lives. I truly believe they have both gotten the best of us. I am a little biased, but I have to admit that there are few bad qualities that I see in my kids.

I love them so much and am so proud of them for dedicating their lives to Christ.

( these two boys look very homesick...NOT!!! I am so glad we made them stay!)

That is so great for Quinn and Ashton! I'm so glad the whole family got to be there for such a special event. And no, those boys don't look homesick one little bit! I remember going to church camp during the summers and I would be SO homesick in the beginning, but by the end I would always end up having the best time ever. I'm glad you made him stay. :)

An amazing day!! Rachael was baptized at this same camp. William was baptized at our home congregation (in El Dorado Springs, MO)...and of course they did it right then and there and we were too far away to see it. I know you are so proud. Tell them welcome to the family.
