Bittersweet

Bittersweet

It’s bittersweet to be having¬†our last Sunday at OLHS tomorrow. 7 years ago I walked in for the first time as a full time staff member (although, I was there for the very first service and it rocked). It was heart-warming to see the level…

Just Keep Swinging Kid

Just Keep Swinging Kid

While at Kid’s Cove yesterday evening, I witnessed controlled chaos. Kids screaming. Parents searching, while screaming. Laughter abounding. Ring around the rosie. Imaginary ninja battles (I may or may not have started this). Parents chatting it up while joyful kids let loose. It was a…
