Back when we were at the musical of Gone With the Wind in London they had aprons with Scarlett's famous line "I'll never go hungry again" on them for 20 pounds. I knew that I could design my own apron with the line and a picture for less than $40. (Mine only cost $15 through Snapfish.com.) I think having the full line written over the silhouetted shot from the movie is far better than just having the words (alone with no picture) printed on an apron. What do you think? Rob took the picture of me modeling my new apron in the kitchen. Now we each have our own since Rob has a blue one with pockets and a white Hawaiian design stitched on it that we picked up at the Dole Plantation gift shop while on vacation in Hawaii.

Yesterday I got to see Rob's new skill in action. Awhile ago he was sent off for two weeks to bus driving school. He drove the bus, with me as his only passenger, up to Weiler Castle to pick up some youth that had just finished a H.Y.P.E. (Helping Youth Pursue Excellence) internship and bring them back to Mannheim for their big show.
After maneuvering in and back through a narrow gate he won the admiration of all on board. Now he says he isn't so quick to put down my idea of RVing around North America someday when retirement time rolls around. After all, an RV is nothing compared to the big school bus he now has mastered. I think it would be wonderful to someday see all those National Parks AFN showcases and many of the states that I have never been to. (I'm not even sure I've hit double digits in the number of states I have been to!)
I wish I had a picture to post of "Rob the Bus Driver" to show you-- but perhaps your imagination can work just as well for this one.

While I didn't forget to call my dad this past Sunday- it does appear that I forgot to make a post in honor of him. I love this pic of my dad looking out to sea. It was taken at the Giant's Causeway in North Ireland on our big trip of Scotland and Ireland last May. He is standing on a rock formation known as "The Giant's Boot".

I know I didn't post this earlier, but-- School's out for the summer!!!!
School finished up last week. Rob and I then had a four day weekend to enjoy together and plan an upcoming cruise for later in the summer. This week I am helping with Vacation Bible School.
The theme this year is "SonForce Kids- Special Agents". I am working with first graders and am having fun playing games and making crafts while seeing skits about special agents and stories from the Bible.
So far it is a pretty cool way to start the first week of summer.

I was surprised yesterday to see that my hit counter had gone over 200. It seems not that long ago that I posted about having passed the 100 mark. While the first 100 took a little while this second hundred snuck up on me awfully quick.
I hope that all of my reader enjoy the blog. Again, leave me some comments and let me know how I can make it better for y'all!

Last weekend Rob and I went with the youth group to Weiler Castle in Bessenbach. While Rob soon became known as "Ranger Rob" because he was never far from the big bonfire, I simply helped out where needed. The theme was "Questing for Excellence" and I think that for the most part the kids did acheive that.
Rob and I headed up a few hours behind others since we had to wait until he got off from work. So while they were getting scared inside the big castle as a big wind and rail with hail storm blew threw and knocked out the power- Rob and I were driving in it! The next day our mission was clear- there were plently of trees down and branches to clear (and burn- Rob's favorite part it seems.)
I am looking forward to returning to the castle sometime for a future service project. It was so nice of Jim & Kristen to give us the big suite with the tower room. The building and grounds are just amazing- not to mention the kids we got to bond with over the weekend.
