SGM Golf Outing 2011

June 4th was the annual Sufficient Grace Ministries golf outing. It was my 2nd year participating. Last year I golfed on a team with Kelly but this year I had my own team so there were 2 women’s teams. Yay! My husband, Anthony, also had his same team from last year (his brother Todd, him, his friend Andy, and his dad).

My team was my friend Kristi, her sister Erin, my sister Katrina, and me. And let me tell you-we had a blast golfing together!

Here is mine, my husband’s, and Kelly’s teams for the golf outing:

The day was a beautiful day! It was warm and sunny and with a breeze. It was a lot like last year only this year had a much better breeze so it didn’t feel quite as hot. However, I learned my lesson last year from getting sunburnt and made sure to put sunscreen on beforehand and bring it with me. Thank goodness I did not get burnt this year but I have really good sunscreen we use now (called thinksport).

Kristi and I were in a cart together and my sister and Erin were in a cart together. We started on hole 1 right after Kelly’s team. We managed to get quite a ways behind them as we continued to golf. So either they get the job done quick or we goofed around a lot!

I started out a lot better than last year but I’m still not a real great golfer! Erin was pretty much the only one on our team with some good golf experience. I mean, she has her own clubs so that definitely means something!

We definitely had some fun and silly moments!! I’m so very glad these girls agreed to golf with me.

Anthony’s team had a great time too.

Kristi and I sponsored a hole together in memory of our babies.

We also made sure to get a pic with the sign at the hole that Sue from My Forever Child sponsored. Thanks for sponsoring, Sue!!

Near the end of the day we were getting pretty tired so we may have skipped a couple holes, which is prolly a good thing because they were still waiting on us when we finished! For a time during the outing it looked like it might storm but the dark clouds went around us thank goodness. I was hoping we would be able to finish without rain and we did.

Thanks so much to everyone who sponsored a hole or other portion of the golf outing. You can see a list of sponsors here on Kelly’s blog. Between the golf outing and a raffle that was held on some signed Ohio State football items, over $6,000 was raised for the ministry. What an awesome amount! The ministry is certainly being blessed this year and I pray that God will continue to bless it and to put it on the hearts of others to donate toward this great ministry.

PS – You can view more photos of the golf outing on the Sufficient Grace Ministries FB page and also in my photos.
