Homecoming and Coming Home

Today was PBU's homecoming - or Crimson Celebration, as it is now called. We had such a great time seeing friends and getting updated on their lives. We were able to catch up with friends Shawn and Jen, David and Esther, Dave and Kristen, Janet and Scott, and most amazingly Deb and Gary!!! I haven't seen my roommate Deb in about eight years! It was so wonderful to talk with her. I really wish we could have stayed longer! It is amazing that after 16 years we are still such close friends. What is even neater is how well all our children get along! This year Matt and Sarah ran around semi-unsupervised. They could be seen as a mob of kids as they went from activity to activity. It is fun to see them form such great friendships with both Andy's and mine former roommates. Maybe they will be roommates when they attend PBU! It would be funny - second generation roommates! There are no pictures because we forgot our camera -BOO!!! I was really disappointed, but with the craziness of trying to get out of the house on time, they got left behind.

Coming home, Andy went right to the block party with Matt and Sarah, while I came home and laid Daniel down for a nap. It was very well attended! There were inflatables, 3-on-3 basketball competitions, preaching, pizza, snow cones, a Christian Rapper, and an i-Pod raffle. Matt participated in the 3-on-3 basketball with his two friends Josh (10) and Zach (12) - they didn't even touch the ball! They were three backyard kids playing three street professional Kensington teen kids! At least they were brave enough to try!! Matt was also in the front row for the concert. He really enjoyed it! Sarah, Daniel and I went home. She was upset because she had gotten run over and knocked down by an older teen roller blading, who wasn't watching where he was going. I think she was really tired! She had a huge day! I think they all fell asleep as soon as their heads hit their pillows! It was a great day! Thank you for praying! Please pray that we may now be able to follow-up on the different people that we had contacts with today. I will post pictures as soon as I get them!
