I have apparently taken an unintentional blogging sabbatical for some reason. But just an update on what we have been up to!
After the cruise I basically blinked and the month of September was GONE! Who stole it? Where did it go? I don't exactly want it back, but it should definitely not have been in such a hurry to leave! The Sunday we got back from cruising we went to our first Panther game of the season. I have to say that even though we are loosing at least Cam Newton makes Carolina Panther football fun to watch! Although last weeks game against Atlanta did remind me of the dreaded Jake days with those 3 interceptions. But because of Cam, we can look forward hopefully toward the future and know that good things are in store! I took pictures at this game, but apparently I have not uploaded them yet, so Ill update you with pics later.
The next Saturday Nathan and I along with a couple other friends from Bethlehem went to Family Night at Bit of Hope Ranch . We did an acoustic praise and worship set and enjoyed the message and seeing all the kids and horses! Bit of Hope is an awesome ministry check out the link! The next day my sweet Nephew Ryder was dedicated and you can read all about that at Little Carrigan, my sissy's blog!
The next Wed. night I drove to Olive Garden at Concord Mills and had supper with my good friend Sarah! She lives in Missouri and she flew into Charlotte for a quick business trip. We had such a great time catching up, I miss her so much and she has a little boy that I am dying to meet. We talked until about 9:30 and then she had to leave, hopefully it will not be another 2 years till I see her again.
The next Saturday Nathan and I went to see his nieces play Soccer in Kannapolis. They were too cute and it was a beautiful day to sit outside and watch!
The following Saturday Nathan and I volunteered to work with a ministry through our church called Hope 4 Gaston. It is an awesome outreach opportunity that our church helps host along with other churches in our area. We offer free food, clothes, appliances and various things to anyone who comes. There is also a block party wherever the event is located with Christian music, and they also pic several people in the community who need home repairs done and we fix their houses for free! We also sponsor Woodhill Elementary School, which is a Title 1 School. Nathan and I went out to the school and dug up old overgrown bushes, put out new mulch and cleaned up kudzu off a fence. We both got bit about 20 times each by fire ants, and Nathan got bit by a spider, but it was worth it to help these kids have a better school!
Last weekend was a nice laid back weekend, I went shopping for a new comforter for our bed, the old one was washed a few times and shrunk. Then Saturday night and Sunday we spent hanging out with Nates parents. Sunday night we went to a class at church called Conversations for Couples, it just basically teaches you how to have a better meaningful conversation with your spouse!
So... now that you are all caught up, this weekend Im going to go to a 31 Party. Ive been hearing about these for a while but have never been to one, so Im looking forward to it and maybe I will get some of my Christmas list bought! Sunday is a Panther game, maybe we will win this one! :)
