Yesterday was just a great day to praise God. I know that every day is a great day to praise Him, but yesterday, it was just so easy. The sun was shining, it was warm enough to wear a light jacket, and we had a great day at church. Plus I didn't have to cook dinner. (Always a good thing!)

The kids had their last day of Sunday School for the year, so they sang one of their favorite praise songs, "Here I Am to Worship". Of course, our son was the only one not very interested in singing. Oh well; praise God that Cy didn't wear the first thing he had picked out yesterday!! (worn-out jeans + white shirt + white vest + dirty black blazer)

Wynne insisted on having a lyrics sheet like the big kids.

Then the "No Strings Attached" puppet group came to perform their latest musical, "Notes of Praise", during worship. The point of the performance was to realize that it doesn't matter what kind of music we use in worship--what matters is what's in our hearts! The show was fabulous, wonderful, impressive, uplifting, funny, smart, thought-provoking, dynamic, awesome...WOW! Here's a funny scene between the feudin' Half-notes and McQuarters.

After worship, we gathered for a potluck, Christian karaoke, guitar hero, tatoos, and jumping. Lots and lots of jumping! Indoor smaller-children's bounce house...

...and outdoor Shangri-la of Bounce Houses.

This was a big hit with all ages. Cy skipped lunch and went directly to the bounce house I think!
Ally took her baby sister in for some semi-safe bouncing. I think one little girl did leave for an ice pack. But overall, it was an amazingly fun time! Kids are so lucky! Where was this stuff when I was a kid??

I forgot to mention the sand art.

When we finally cleaned up and tore the kids off the inflatable play equipment, we came home and fixed the chicken fence. It was a family effort, and it was truly fun. Everybody working together, outdoors, enjoying nature and each other's company.
I love Sundays. Praise God for this day of rest and for honoring Him!

Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. --1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
