A whole month of life has sped by without a blog post. That probably isn't a big deal to you, but it is to me! Blogging is how I keep track of our life!
In a nutshell...
Vacation - camping on Hvar in Croatia...ahhh, nothing better! Good coffee mornings with our dear friends...warm days at the beach...fabulous dinners we took turns making for each other...movie nights (doesn't everyone bring a VPU camping??)...cliff jumping...island hopping...gelato...boat trips...starry nights.
Tyler - sweet final days together at the campground...last songs on the guitar...a boat ride to Split...early morning coffee at 6:30 AM in the airport...final waves through the glass doors of security...good-bye...off to college at Moody. We miss him!!!
JV Kid's Camp - bless Mel and Amy and all the JV staff who ran camp this summer in Slovenia! Delightful week for our kids...memorizing Scripture...great talks with counselors...fun treats...happy days.
School starts - Claire is off to high school, Caleb already in second year of it...good friends Hannah and Hayley join them at BMA (it's like having your cousins at school with you!)...Claire has fun week-end retreat getting to know her class...lots of homework...they love BMA in spite of homework!
Romania - the second day of school for the kids, I left on a 21 hour train ride to Romania where I spoke for 120 young women...beautiful faces...talking about "Intimacy with Jesus"...sweet prayer times...fun with my friend Laurie from the States...fell in love with Romanian girls and Romanian worship songs...left part of my heart there.
Whew! That is SO far from all that happened this past month! But it will have to do. Who would read it if I wrote everything? Okay...my mom and mother-in-law would! But no one else! :)
We start JV fall conference on Monday - Dave is teaching three main sessions, I have two sessions of a seminar on Discipling Women. Can't wait to see all 160 who will be here for it!
And so goes our lives!!
