Project Life {Week 22}

Our life.

One week at a time.


Week 22.

May 27th - June 2nd.

Pentecost {Shavuot/Feast of Weeks}

Two wave loaves of fine flour, grain offering, drink offering, seven lambs, one young bull, and 2 rams. :) 

Loved seeing our family take up a whole row (with Bo on my lap most of the service or peering over at the baby in the next isle). :) 

Sissy feel asleep. Lots of late nights on our trip ~ not something the little ones are used to! 

We had a double service for Pentecost followed by a roast beef lunch with potatoes, rolls, and green beans, followed by a hot dog cookout with chili and potato salad afterwards for dinner.

It was awesome!!! We have such a small congregation in Billings, but there were 107 people in Missoula from the northwest - WA, OR, ID and MT. (We were the 2nd farthest away.)

All the kids met new friends, but the older boys especially met new friends that they will stay in contact with. Jordan will get to attend Northwest Camp in Oregon in July and see them again. Then we will get to see some at the Feast of Tabernacles in Big Fork, Montana in Oct. as someone offered to pay for our meals and lodging! I am so happy that the boys (especially) are meeting like minded teens that are following God's ways. They are encouraged in their faith to know that they are not alone and excited to have friends that believe the same as we. But, so are WE! God is so good! Everyone was kind and loving and REAL! Our pastor spoke for the first Pentecost service and mentioned us as well and that made us feel welcome. After fellowshipping at home for so long with just our family, I am happy to be a part of this church and have genuine fellowship. This has been my hearts desire and prayer for some time now and I am blessed to see Father working in our lives in this area.

That night, we drove to Helena to stay with our pastor and family. The next day we packed up to leave, and stopped at the carousel on our way out of town. While we were in the carousel, Jordan took the tire off to inspect the brakes (they were smelling bad). Long story short, we stayed another night and had the brake pads redone in the morning (we had them replaced just before we left, but the wrong ones were put on).

Bo rode the frog. :) 

Uptown Helena on Memorial Day. 

We had another nice stay in Helena and are SO thankful for the family that put us all up for three nights!

Back to normal life! :)

Mali and Elli started swimming lessons the next day.

And I decided that I was going to start juicing regularly again! Which was timely because me, Bo, Mali, Elli, and Dylan all caught colds.

I have been doing activities with Bo from the book Slow and Steady, Get Me Ready. He loves the buttons in a can.

You can tell in his eyes that my sweet boy is not feeling well. 

Watermelon picnic. :) 

Bo LOVES the Berkey. He helps me by playing with the water when I need to cook with it. :)
