Coaches Outreach...

We spent the weekend at a Coaches Outreach marriage conference at DeGray Lake in Arkansas. We have been to CO a few other times, but this was our first trip to DeGray. Several of our coaching friends, along with my parents, were also going which made it so fun! We look forward to CO every year! Coaches Outreach is an incredible organization that ministers to coaches and their spouses. During the school year they organize weekly bible studies for the coaches and during the summer they host several marriage conferences. We come away feeling refreshed, focused and reenergized for the upcoming school year. I love that the conference allows us to meet and get to know other coaching couples. The speakers, music and all that goes into the weekend are so encouraging and help us to keep the Lord in the center of our marriage. We can't wait to go back again next year!

Us with the Shermans, our great friends from church and our neighbors! Jeff and Sarah
The Ryons with my parents. The Ryons are longtime friends of our family and we love seeing them at CO every year.
Kelli and Jeff, our friends and our head coach at MHS.

During our free time we rented a pontoon boat with the other MHS couples and brought the Shermans along too. The guys jumped off the top of the boat.

The wives.
Thank you Coaches Outreach for all that you do! And HUGE thank you to Mimi who came in from Houston to keep Anna Lou and Graham so we would be able to go! They loved their time with Mimi!
