Bring It!

This is Blake and his BFF Luke. Luke lives across the street from us. They are like two peas in a pod. They love to work out and play hard. This was after a Crossfit workout.

School Play

Back in September, Tyler tried out for his school play. I had no idea what a big deal it was to actually make the school play. This is very typical of me. I had people congratulating me, on Tyler, in Target. Again, no idea.
So from September to February, the cast has been practicing at least 3 times a week or more. They had three shows and we bought 18 tickets to spread between family and friends.
The play was set in the 1960's and had a number of Beatles songs throughout the play.
Tyler did a great job and he loved it. It was a great experience. Oh yeah, and please don't challenge us in Beatles Trivial Pursuit because we will win. :)

I heart Chick-fil-a!

I love Chick-fil-a for SO many reasons, but our favorite thing Chick-fil-a does is family night. Every Tuesday Night is family night. Kids eat free and they always have something fun for the kids to do. This is a product from the balloon guy. He can pretty much do anything with balloons.
On a side note, I wouldn't recommend going when Lowe's or Home Depot come. All you hear is hammering all through dinner. That is enough to send anyone over the edge.

Can you tell....

...I live in a house full of boys.


On Saturday, February 5, 2011, the Lake Travis Chamber of Commerce hosted their annual Awards Banquet.

Free Chapel was nominated along with 4 other local non-profits for the "Shining Star" category.

Chamber President Laura Mitchell announced that Free Chapel had received the award! She went on to read the following description of Free Chapel which is flat-out humbling:

"Free Chapel is a young church with a lot of heart that serves their community in radical and meaningful ways! In the past year Free Chapel has served breakfast to LTISD teachers and staff of Lakeway Elementary, assisted with the community Egg Hunt at Easter, joined with LT Love to distribute lunches to kids in need with the summer lunch program and hosted the inaugural Heroes Day for the Lake Travis Police and Fire departments and on their 2 year anniversary, Free Chapel hosted a food drive for Lake Travis Crisis Ministries. Lastly, the church supports Pastor Jeremy Self as he serves as a Director for the chamber Board. Free Chapel no only serves the community locally, but is intentional about making a global impact, as well. Congratulations to Free Chapel!"

We are so proud to be members of the Lake Travis Chamber of Commerce and are thankful to have received this very special award.

And, WAY TO GO, Free Chapel! You are doing what God called us to a light to your community! I love being your pastor!
