Somewhere we missed a recap of August… and it’s almost time for a recap of September. Wow.

August started out with Jeff hosting a youth group from Atlanta for a brief mission trip. The group was led by a college buddy, Dale, and Jeff enjoyed being able to minister with the kids at the Nashville Rescue Mission and serving at a shelter.

You get a free bottle of Coke at the end of your tour!

I finally made my trip to Georgia! Jeff took me down to see AIM and meet more of the staff. We stayed with the Goodes, and they were wonderful hosts! It was so great to spend so much time with the family. And Heather threw a wonderful dinner party where I got to get to know even more AIM people. It was long over due, and I hope it won’t take two years for me to get back down there again.  We were also able to spend an afternoon touring the World of Coco-Cola and eat at The Sun Dial Restaurant.

The following weekend we went to my company’s picnic. Like last year, Provident reserved a party deck at the Nashville Sounds stadium (minor league baseball), where we ate typical baseball food and got to see Brandon Heath perform before the game.

And we ended the month and started the next with a wonderful long weekend in OKC visiting our great friends, the Damerys. We spent the weekend sight seeing, eating food and playing Phase 10.  We’ve already discussed making a joint purchase – – a helicopter – – so that we could do weekends and dinners more often.  If you find this a worthy cause, you may donate by letting us know through leaving a comment.  🙂
