Creek Kids Warehouse is open!!

Today was the Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting for our new Children's Ministry! I am so proud to be a part of the team and WOW what a day! It rocked! Everything went well, the kids were wide-eyed and excited, just wait, there's more to come!! We started this building journey 2+years ago, and broke ground June 08 and today it was a reality! I took a few pics, but they aren't great, so hopefully I can direct you to better ones as soon as they are published! I am the Shop Foreman at the 10am service time, if you are in the area, stop by and say HI! The whole building is themed as a Warehouse, garage, alley, service station, you get the jist.(Click pics for larger size!)
in the Chop Shop (volunteer lounge)

new kids check in

entrance to the Garage (door closed)
when large group starts, the siren goes off
and the door opens to the Garage area.
Couldn't get a good pic, too dark!

this is the slide from the loft to the main stage,
Trey was messing around one day when I was

More of the alley; foosball, air hockey, basketball,
skateboarding, shave cream wall, Tic Tac Toe,
checkers, video games, ping pong... it's hard getting the
kids outta here! (and some grown ups)

K-1 classroom, still waiting on the rugs for in here.

2-3 grade classroom, those bean bags are HUGE!
4-5th grade room.

We are just so blessed to have this for our kids, the people that
volunteer are the best and the Campus director rocks!

We are having a carnival for the community in Sept,

It's almost here!

School that is! The end of summer is almost here, well... in terms of the school year, but not the heat! The heat indexes have been in the 109 range for the past few days. I thought we'd get the rain like crazy yesterday, it was thundering and lightening, blowing and got so dark....and it started raining, then nothing! Didn't even rain enough to get the driveway wet!! WAAAAHHHH!
Just wanted to pop in and say hi, as soon as school starts, I'll try to get back in the blog groove!

Wild Olive

How cool of a name is that for a company? Wild Olive They are an online Tshirt company that has the coolest shirts and each one has a message! They are launching their kidswear and I'm helping spread the news! They also contribute to a charity Love Without Boundaries that helps improve the lives of orphaned and impoverished children in China. I personally don't own any of their clothes, but I check the site weekly to see what is new...and hopefully I'll get some soon! Go check them out! thanks!

I had to take a break and post, but I still have more to do! (sorry, the tripod was cock-eyed, and the lighting is horrible...)

Trey's party was fun...we met all his friends up at the Fun Max, it's an old grocery store turned into Bouncey Heaven... they played for an hour and half, lasted longer than I thought. It takes alot out of them, good if you wanna wear em out! Then we got Chinese take out, came back home and let them eat. Then I got Trey's present (A cell phone) which I swore I wouldn't do... more about that some other time, and put it under the ottoman before I called them in to open gifts. He had a time with some of the cards and got some cool stuff. Then Nick called his phone, and we were like "what is that?" they thought it was from a card, so he did it again until they went searching. He was really surprised... he just better prove he can handle it! Then we made ice cream sundaes and had cake. It was all good! But all night he wanted to jack with that phone, but we got him off of it and all the boys, young and old, had a Rock Band night. For some reason I keep hearing AC/DC in my brain! I got to bed about midnight and slept without getting woken up. Miracle of all miracles! Fed them eggs and bacon for breakfast, and sent them all home around noon. Yesterday we had to go spend some birthday money. First a case for the phone and a USB cable, then a new Wii game....can't save money this kid.....
