Silas, Callie and Micah had worked hard to have a good stock for their store. They scoured our yard and had plenty of things for sale like pine needles (Patrick has claimed those), pinecones (maybe a craft item?), some neat weathered wood, and lots of fun odds and ends.
I liked these pieces of wood they had found. Unfortunately, I didn't bring my money with me. It was a quarter for the little piece. I asked him if I could pay tomorrow, but take the wood today so I could start on my project. His answer? Nope. I had to pay before pick up. Little stinker! He also wasn't too flexible on the price either!
We are loving the slightly cooler temps and being outside!

It's here! It's here! The weather is starting to slightly turn cooler. You can just smell 'Autumn' in the air! And you can smell lot of pumpkin candles in the house. That means it's time to bring out our Fall Decorations!
Happy Fall Y'all!!

We decided to do a Saturday night International Dessert Fellowship to kickoff the conference. We asked the members to bring desserts from other countries. The instructions were to have the dish labeled with the country it was from and to make sure it was cut into small servings. We wanted everyone to be able to sample as much as they could.
As the conference drew closer and the sign up sheet filled up, I noticed some familiar handwriting at the bottom. My Silas signed up to bring Boston Cream Donuts from Boston! Well....I think we need to work on our geography and talk more about countries. ;o) But, that will be for another time. For now, we praised him for his creativeness and wanting to bring something!
Yummy Boston Cream Donuts....from Boston. ;o)

In Control though the storm around you be raging.
He's in control, in your life, no matter what you're facing.
Even in your darkest night, when there seems to be no light,
He's always with you, He'll never fail you,
He's in control.
How true those words are. So thankful for our Heavenly Father's love and watch care over us! So thankful that just like my husband did for Micah, our God is always ready and willing to take us in His arms, comfort us, and tell us it will be okay.
So, Matthew came and went. We were far enough west to only have some wind and a little rain. The power did go out for several hours. My crazy kiddos cheered! Now, it's time to dump out all the water and pick up some branches!

Our first one was at the Police Department. The High Springs Police Department has been such a blessing to VSIBC as we've started the church. We've had a couple of Police Officers stop by to let us know that they are keeping an eye on us, watching out for us and are there if we need them. We often see a Police Officer parked near the church as we leave. What a blessing! So, it was nice to go for a visit and to personally tell them thank you for all they do!

I think we probably ate double the amount we picked!
