So we were given a table and some chairs by some friends of ours in Midland MI. They were nice used chairs. Bethany and I decided to visit habitat for humanity and found a really cool darkwood table that was sturdy and had a leave in it. We picked it up but we needed chairs. So...I decided to paint the other chairs. Of course I did not check the weather that day because it looked so nice out and it was 80+ degrees out side with a light breeze. So I sanded down the chair and spray painted the chairs black. They took two coats. I also left just enough grain and original color so to keep a little character. They were turning out great... but I ran out of paint. So ran to.the store. Then it started to sprinkle. It stopped, and it started to sprinkle. I painted the last chair and just made it. I spayed a finish coat over top and they turned out great!
My son Linc had a great time insisting on sitting on the perfect rock. We had an absolutly wonderful day downtown. The weather was perfect. There were a lot of people enjoying the day downtown. I stopped by Jerrad Emerson's art studio, but he was not there. We also Saw Carmen Scott at spill the beans coffee shop. All in all it was a wonderful day.
So while I am at work I am reminded the my brother in law is a the Wilds camp for a youth pastor's conference. I finish work like a mad man, so that we can leave as soon as possible. The roads were so crazy. I forgot how curvey and steep some the roads are in the hills. It was well worth the trip being able to see Brennen. This also a first for Link and Bethany. We were able to go out to eat with a few of the Northland grads and students. We went out to the old standard pizza hut. We had a good chat and said our goodbyes. Of course, I did have to go to work at 4:30 am the next day. I hope the the Wilds will continue to stand for what is right and not sway like so many other places seem to do.
We had an awsome concert! Our new CD is out. It is titled "Singing Around the Piano (volume 1)." We had a great time recording this album. It contains some classic gospel tunes with a freshly recorded sound. I know that I will never forget the crazy times flying in to Greenville SC from Midland MI.
