the summer of a lifetime

This month, Steve went backpacking with his friend and co-worker from Florida around the base of Mt. Hood, and when AW comes home from camp today it will be one of only 5 days that our family unit will have together for the entire month of August.

The India Team leaves on Wednesday evening with our daughter. Thanks to all who contributed money, encouragement and prayers for her trip! She is very excited and a little bit nervous.

The dog and I are holding down the fort but I have a plan to get out of Dodge too. I'm going here in January, good lord willing and the creek don't rise. I have a feeling this is only a glimpse of things to come....


  • Ah, yes...I remember sending my 14-year-old Bethie off to Brazil several years just doesn't seem ok that they can go so far away without a Momma with them. But...thankfully...our "Papa" always goes with them...

  • Thanks for this reminder Denise. I nearly choked when Rachelle said they were leaving in 48 hours *yesterday.* Having her stuff strewn all over the living room now means it's really happening. We'll be home watching, waiting and praying. :)
