Joel and I have led a small group for three years now.
We LOVE our group.
They are like family to us.
They have walked with us through some really tough stuff this year.
Every single one of them showed up at the hospital the night we checked Cora in to encourage and pray with us.
Someone from our group was at the hospital every day.
They are great!
Every summer we try to take a small group trip.
This year we headed to Table Rock Lake.
But this particular Saturday there was no sun.
The girls were too chicken to get in the cold water.
So, we spent the morning on the boats
bundled up in our towels watching the boys brave the lake.
Finally, it was warm enough to get in the water.
The afternoon was beautiful.
It was time to head back to the cabin to get ready for dinner.
And a little shopping for some.
It is a small group tradition now.
They have the BEST guacamole.
We are so thankful for this dear group of friends.
