Emma and Eli: September 2019

From Labor Day on the Lake, to Eli’s baptism at church, to Eli’s soccer games, Emma and I working our last triathlon of the season, Middle School Softball, and Fall Break in Aruba…September was full of fun as we made lots of memories together!  I’ve included some social media posts from the month as well as some pictures below.
September 2 Labor Day on the Lake | Tubing, Laughing, Eating, Laughing, Swimming, Resting, and more Laughing. What a day! ? @kellyjimb@coachjim1024@clintstrange32#7000days

September 4 Where are you headed for @NCCSEagles Upper School Spring Term 2020? Excited to officially launch Spring Term during chapel tomorrow. Grateful for these incredible opportunities to engage our hearts and minds for the sake of the gospel! #GoEagles#WeAreNCCS#NCCSFamily#nccsst20

September 7 Congratulations @visitacworth on an awesome first Pizza, Pints, and Pigskins event at Logan Farm Park. We had a blast! The food was great, we saw lots of friends, and we almost melted ? #WeLoveAcworth#7000days

September 8 Today was a HUGE day in the Strange family as our precious son was baptized @cedarcrestchurch so that he could tell everyone “I have decided to follow Jesus!” I’m so grateful for so many of you who have prayed for Eli, prayed for us, and been the hands and feet of Jesus as you have poured into our son and our family over the years. Today was a celebration for sure!  Some dear friends prayed Scripture over our boy and one of our friends made it into a beautiful piece of artwork to celebrate this day. “Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. Do everything in love.” ‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭16:13-14‬ ‭NIV‬‬

September 9 Thank you @cedarcrestchurch for giving Eli a chance to share his testimony on video before his baptism. What a treasure! God truly does write the best stories! #Grateful I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth. – 3 John 1:4 Eli’s Baptism Video

September 10 A two hour weather delay ended up cancelling our @NCCSEagles Middle School softball game in the end…but these girls sure know how to make lemonade out of lemons. They played and laughed and made the very most of our time trying to wait out the weather. It’s truly been a blessing helping coach these young ladies. They are an awesome group of girls and they definitely keep me laughing! We didn’t get to play the softball game that we hoped to play today, but I still think it was time well spent! #GoEagles#WeAreNCCS#NCCSFamily#MakingMemories

September 13 Before the weather got crazy, we had a blast at the @NCCSEagles Football game hanging out with Swoop and celebrating some of our Fall Sport Seniors (Softball, Cross Country, and Volleyball). After that, the lightening, wind, and rain came and just would not go away. Play was suspended and we will try again tomorrow evening at 7:30pm. We hope to see all our Eagles fans in the stands! #GoEagles#WeAreNCCS#NCCSFamily

September 14 After being cancelled for almost two weeks due to high temps, Eli’s soccer season officially got underway this afternoon. We love cheering on our precious boy and he LOVES to run and kick the ball, so it was a great afternoon for all! #7000days#WeLoveOurBoy

September 14 Today was the last race of the season with our @tritheparks race volunteer crew. We have had so much fun this season! Emma and I were able to help at every race this year and we can’t wait for next year! Today Emma met an extraordinary young lady that she will never forget. Tatum has some physical challenges, but she was 100% committed to finishing her first paratriathlon. She totally rocked the swim and the bike, but the run loomed large for her. Emma, Logan, and some of our other staff kids decided they’d run the 5K with her to encourage her. I assure you that they all came back far more encouraged themselves than they could have imagined. Tatum, you inspired me as well! So grateful for these moments with my precious girl! #7000days

September 17 What a night at the @NCCSEagles First Grade Fairytale Ball! So grateful for our awesome Lower School and all that they do to make learning fun! What a treat to see my “Prince Charming Eli” all dressed up in a “handsome” (as he calls it) shirt. Lots of fun with sweet friends! #7000days#GoEagles#WeAreNCCS#NCCSFamily

September 19 It’s been such a gift to get to help coach our @NCCSEagles Middle School softball team this year. This is an awesome group of young ladies and it’s been an absolute blast to get to know them. Today was our last regular season game and I realized I had no pictures of my precious girl. So..I snapped a few quick ones..at bat, on base, and playing third. What a special time this has been to share together! #GoEagles#WeAreNCCS#NCCSFamily ? #8IsMyGirl

September 26 SABBATH | Fall Break 2019 So grateful for the opportunity to rest, adventure, and spend time with my people as we explored the beautiful country of Aruba. Thank you Lord for the gift of precious time together! #7000days#OneHappyIsland

September 30 Powerful time of looking at God’s word and what He has to say about Blooming Where We are Planted led by @mikelinch@nsckennesaw at Lunch with a Leader. Thank you Mike for pointing us to our purpose in Christ! #LifeOfMoses#BeFaithful ‬ Exodus 2:9-10. Hebrews 11:24-26
