Happy 4th!

I had a wonderful weekend!  One of my fave places in the world (yes world) is Mansfield, Texas!  I spent the day of the 4th there and it was fantastic!  I spent the day laying out in the pool with the Pizzini family and of course Janie brought out her famous smoothies and made us lunch!  Then that evening we went to the Hobbs for a shrimp boil!  Most of my college 4th’s were spent in Mansfield….BBQ’s, LBJ Lake, Naked boys in hot tubs, illegal fireworks and cops, jumping off the balcony…the list could go on!!!!!  Afterwards we went to the top of the youth building to watch the fireworks across the DFW skyline!  It was fantastic!

It felt like old times!  It was really fun to sit back and see how the lives of students had changed since I first started interning there four years ago (YIKES!!!!)  The 7th grade girls I started out with are now leaving for college; some are in their senior year of college, some are engaged, some are even married..it is just crazy!  I am so thankful the Lord has blessed me with true relationships there that have been for the purpose of glorifying him!  I love it!  I will forever think of Mansfield as home!

The pics aren’t that good…but I wanted to post some!

Jac-a-lack-a!!!!  A year ago we had just finished traveling in Switzerland together:-)

After dinner!  Most of these guys were 9th/10th graders!  Some of them were the naked boys in the hot tub!  Love love love them!
