Hermans Hermits, Evanjafrica and a wedding...

We have been so busy! On Friday we went to an outdoor concert to see an old favorite of my mom's...Herman's Hermits. It was a blast! Peter Noone was very funny and all of the songs were great. Now you might be wondering why the heck would Aaron and I go see one of my MOM's favorites. Well, I grew up listening to them and I still love those goofy songs.

...I Henry the VII I am Henry the VIII I am I am.... I'm sure you know the rest of the song so I won't keep going, but we did have a great time!

I also have been keeping busy with another project. The man who runs the orphanage we visited in Africa, Carlos, and his new wife are coming for a visit in August. It should be fun, but we are also trying to start a new "adopt a child" program. It is very time consuming starting a non profit, but I think God has meant for me to be very involved in this. I really have a heart for the kids we visited and much of my ministries at church have fallen away, and I was pretty hurt/sad/angry about it but now I know why God was putting those all on hold... I was meant to be a part of this project. The timing is also perfect because Aidan is starting Kindergarden, so I will have afternoon's free to work on whatever needs to be done... since it won't stop after all the kids are "adopted". So, if you are in UT and would like to hear more about Evajafrica and what we are doing please contact me and I can fill you in. I am so excited to fill you in more and would love for you to come meet Victor and Christina and let them share stories about the kids in their orphange.

One last little brother is getting married on Sunday! I can't believe it and am so happy to go visit my family.... I still can't believe my little brother is old enough to get married!

Happy Anniversary!

(A few days late!)

Aaron and I "celebrated" our 11 year anniversary this last Saturday. I put celebrated in quotes because we did no such thing. Aaron worked hard all week at "World Changers" and was pretty tired, scabbed up and sore. So, we put off the celebrating for another day, but I want him to know that I am more in love with him today than when we got married 11 years ago!

Happy Anniversary to my best friend! I love you!
