JULY GAMES AND FELLOWSHIP

Games and Fellowship for the month of July was hosted at our house. I took some pictures of the evening. First is Millie, wondering when the eating/drinking part is ever going to get started.She kept hiding behind her doll.
And then peeking out. :)
The men, kids and young adults all played games on our field. I think they played wiffle ball and several others. I only got a picture of some of the young ladies sitting on the sidelines and watching.
We ate out on the deck and in the backyard.
The kids mixed in some play on the swingset.
Good conversation as usual.


This is Evan Falkenstein and his fiancee, Kellen.
Joseph Moss tried hard to avoid pictures, so I had to include this one. He was home, briefly, from Westpoint.
Our last church event with the Stedmans. (Josh is holding the football). We all felt a little sad that evening.
After dinner we ran some extension cords up to the field so we could play music and do some dance practice.
We especially wanted the children to have a chance to learn some of the dances that we would be doing at Matt and Tricia's wedding.
Titus Stedman fell asleep on Mrs. Carpenter's knees. It was really cute.
Yeh Ern Poh so nicely sat with Jonathan Oldland so that his parents could dance and he also ran the CD player.
Mr. and Mrs. Oldland doing some of their first dancing!
John and Sarah Moss, on the right, called the dances (John) and showed us all how to do it. It was very hot and sweaty, but TONS of fun for everyone!
I took a short video of a portion of the Pattycake Polka where all of the children were involved. Everyone got a kick out of Millie's attempts at the dancing. It's brief, but it'll give you the idea.

This was super cool to see as I wasn't there that evening. It looks like such a large group of fun-loving, happy people. :) Thanks for posting the pictures and comments!

Cute video of Amelia trying to do the dance. Jorie and Joshua have enjoyed the videos you have posted recently. Especially Joshua. He loves the one of Cecily eating the cheerios. :)

Lora,
It surprised me that the Cheerios video is my kids' favorite one too. I think children really get a kick out of babies. :)
