After a long flight to Seattle we arrived around supper time. We ate supper and then headed to a beach. The boys quickly found a playground to burn off some steam.
We slept hard and then woke up to head to church. Have I mentioned that the weather was just dreamy?!? Absolutely beautiful. We had a fiesta lunch and then rested a little. Before dinner we stopped at the LEGO store for an emergency visit, because we knew the rest of the week would be jam packed.
Monday morning we got to church and packed door hangers to be distributed. In my group were my boys, my friend's kiddos, one young girl, two teenage girls and one other adult. We hung about 400 (no lie) door hangers advertising activities for the rest of the week. The other team did about the same. I had some tired fellas that evening.
After a full day we went back to the LEGO store for Chima races and then headed to eat.
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday were pretty much the same. We hosted a rec camp at a local park before lunch and then each night we hosted a BBQ. A BBQ in Seattle is what we call a weenie roast in the South. We hosted these in three different areas of the city. I was so proud of the the boys at these. Jack worked at the snow cone station almost all night. He got so good at serving them. My fella would even walk around and ask people if he could get them a snow cone when no one was at his station.
I talked with the boys about looking out for others while we were there. When Clayton was in line for his snow cone he asked for grape. He noticed that there was only a little left and that a visitor was behind him. As soon as he saw these two things he asked the boy behind him if he wanted grape. It was really a sweet moment for me as a mom to watch. I pray my boys continue to develop a servant heart and eyes to see others around them. Below is our crew after one of the rec camps...
