Happy Birthday

Happy birthday Mark!  

Once upon a time, there was a very little boy born overseas.  He needed to get a birth certificate and a passport.  Since the hospital was very close to where it all needed to be done, his daddy took him out of the hospital and got all the paperwork done while Momma remained behind.   Thinking about that story always makes me laugh and also wonder, “did that really happen??”   Yes, it really did!

The Jump

The younger two and I  got to enjoy a week at Patmos with Andrea between a few retreats.  The weather was super nice part of the time and rainy and dreary the other part.  

One thing Megan really wanted to do was to jump off the pier.  She watched campers do it during camp and she wanted to try also.  So after playing hard one day, we decided to jump. Megan had so much fun, they jumped three or four times.  If we did not need to get cleaned up before dinner, we probably would have played even longer.



Spent a morning exploring Alivars with Kristi and Kari.  Rarely do we have enough time to spend together, so it was a super special treat this last week.  We looked for sea glass, Lucky Stones and just spent time catching up.
