"The LORD your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you,
He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. "

Another Weekend at the lake - Mauritzen style!

We left the lake on July 5th and then turned around on the 8th and came back for another weekend of relaxing and fun. This weekend was special because my family came down to spend some quality time together as our last little hurrah before Suzanne leaves for mission training in Virginia and then on to South Africa in the fall. My in-laws were so incredibly generous to let us use their property for the weekend where all we had to pay for was food the entire time we were there. That is amazing and it was such a ministry to my family! We had a great weekend where we ate good food, played a lot of cards, slept in, spent time together and did a whole lot of nothing. :) It was rainy when we got there and beautiful when we left and just really enjoyed every minute. :) Here are some pics from the weekend:
So this is a very fun water slide that our children's minister and church assistant found in a random closet at the church the week before. No one knows how or when it got there, so we decided to take it with us and 'try' it out for the weekend. :) Just in case anyone was wondering, it is in great shape and was a TON of fun for our preschoolers!

Daddy had to try it out too! ;)

Ainsley wasn't into the slide thing, but she was completely content playing bubbles with Zuzu. :)

Austin with his new goggles he earned for completing swim lessons (that yes, we have already lost and had to replace. :)

3 kids and a wet stuffed lamb in a boat...

pretty much the scene all weekend...

Ains and Papa - our youngest was in a 'special place' all weekend long. We decided that she was just really tired and well, just 2 - always a difficult year for the Werley kiddos. ;)

Ains lovin' her Zuzu time! My sweet Dad planned a little commissioning service for Suz for us to do as a family on Saturday morning. It was such a neat time as we cried, prayed and encouraged my little sis. Can't believe that she is about to leave and live out her dream!! She is driving to Virginia this week! Here we go...

I was in church last week when Pastor Toby prayed over your sister to send her out from our congregation. Neat times especially since I have been reading about her plans as a Journeyman through your blog. Will pray safe journeys for her through training then on to service.
