End of the year and summer activities!

Hello Friends!

Summer has officially begun for the Bridges family! We have just finished up school, and just this past Saturday, we had our piano recital, which ended our piano activities for the year! So now that the busy month of May has passed, we are ready to have a bit more time on our hands for the summer months. Lord willing, our plans include: SV Getaway trip for Dad, trip to visit Grandpa in Ardmore Oklahoma for the girls, learning to sew and working on our quilt project, family choir camp at our church, ministering to younger children thru different avenues (more on that in the next couple weeks!) hospitality, cello for me (Kate), gardening, mother's helper, a month long trip to Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, and Michigan, and blogging more faithfully! :)

Below are a few pictures from our Spring Awards Piano recital. Playing the piano is one of our favorite things to do, and we are so grateful to the Lord for our wonderful teacher!

Some family and friends: The Roach family and the Hickle family.

Kylie Roach, a dear friend, and Kelsey Hickle, a dear cousin! :)

Later that evening, we went to hear the Dallas Symphony Orchestra with the Roaches, and had a wonderful time!! What an inspiration to hear those talented musicians! It motivated me to hear the AMAZING cellists (as I plug through my little beginners' basics!! :)) We also enjoyed a serious game of volleyball and Frisbee during the intermission! :)

We joined the approximately 500 other people on the lawn with lawn chairs and sheets to watch the performance.

And were surprised and delighted by a spectacular fireworks display during the very last song!

Stay tuned in the next several days for an exciting story of how we have seen God's goodness to soften hearts and bring people to Himself!
