This Weekend

This weekend has been great! Our friends, Virg & Marilyn are visiting us from Charlotte. We were part of a small church family with them until we moved out here to the OBX. My son, Corey also came in Friday for a visit as well. Corey's a Marine, stationed at a Marine Reserve facility. Last night I also invited my friend, Sam over for dinner. So the table was full! I loved it. Of course, Pam does all the cooking, what's not to love? Thankfully, Pam is blessed with the gift of hospitality. She is "the hostess with the mostest". Pam always assured that everyone not only is comfortable, but feels at home.

Yesterday, Corey and I took AJ down the beach for surf lessons. Guys at our church hold a surf camp called Hukilau Surf Camp. Everywhere else people have vacation Bible school or summer soccer camps, whatever. We have surf camps. Ya gotta love it! We stood around and watched as all these kids did their best to get up on their feet in the waves. AJ managed to do so a couple of times. But is was mostly climb on, ride in, fall off, walk back out. I"m sure the adult helpers were absolutely spent by the end of the 3 hours. That is AJ with her friend at the end of the camp day.

We all went to church together this morning. We we are members of The Nags Head Church.
Nags Head is the name of the town, and has nothing to do with the type of people here. LOL

Corey's leaving this afternoon to head back to base; Virgil and Marilyn will head back in the morning. We'll have youth group at the beach this evening. The family will work together to clean an office building (making extra money) and we'll call it a day.
