Crumbl, Sneak Attack, and Worldwide

Have you ever had Crumbl Cookies? Oh my these things are so good! The girls bought some a few months ago and now they check the menu weekly. We usually get some about once a month. These things are so soft and the selection is so unique... seemingly infinite... and the options change every week. They have the usual's like chocolate chip, peanut butter, but they also have -

Cotton Candy
Carmel Apple
Biscoff Lava
Raspberry Cheesecake
Peanut Butter and Jelly
Berries and Cream...

And they're huge! We'll sometimes buy these on family game night and then cut them into fourths so we all get to taste a few of them. We've probably been eating these way more than we should!
Ally was playing volleyball with the Boys and Girls Club this spring and the season ended last night. It was so good to watch the girls and see just how much they improved since their very first game. She told me she'd like to be on the team in middle school, which she will be in this fall! Middle School! Hard to believe. Now I have to take a little trip down Memory Lane...

This was her graduation picture from preschool.

 Okay, back to volleyball. :)

She got an award for the best Sneak Attack. She's quiet but she hits the ball hard! And she's getting really good at serving! Sharaya's a coach, and Ally's waiting for the next rotation so she can play.

We celebrated Pentecost Sunday this weekend. There were close to 60 nations represented in the parade of flags, each person who carried a flag was born in that country. Then a gathering of every person who attends our church who was born in a different country.

These are from first and second service.

Our pastor tells them we'll never truly understand the obstacles they faced to get to America, and after they arrived, but they are loved and welcomed. It's an emotional day for everyone!

I have heard of CRUMBLE our kids have enjoyed getting cookies from there.
The photos of Ally are all so cute. Sounds like a meaningful Pentecost Sunday service. Hope the rest of your week goes well.

That is an amazing flag procession!! I recognized the Ukranian flag being held by a young boy. How very special this tradition is. So many countries represented. Just amazing.

Crumbl cookies. Mmmm, mmmm, mmmm! Have had them once. Love your idea of cutting them in fourths. That way you can enjoy many more flavors. Genius.

Your little volleyball player is a doll. She looks sweet and spunky. My kind of gal.
