Hot JUUU...ly

Lots of summer happenings in the Thompson household these last few weeks! Five wonderful highlights: 1. Our first VBS at Faith Bible Church 2. Shilo gets to go to the Women Discipling Women Conference at Grace Community Church (no pics here) 3. Emily (now Otten!) comes to visit 4. Shilo's mom & step-dad come to visit 5. Glen heads up first mission trip with 12 people to a poor Indian reservation in Yakama, WA. Micah, Daisy, and I missed him very much but we were thankful to have loved ones here.
