Yep, still here. Enjoying summer as much as possible, actually. Right now we're home on a 48-hour recouperation mission. Spent 3 days camping out at the beach this past weekend and we're heading back out to do the same here shortly. It's been entirely too much fun and I've eaten entirely too many roasted marshmallows, if that's possible.
Soon, I get to go pick up Chuck and his family from the airport and deposit them at their temporary lodging location. They are moving here (!) and we are so excited to have them on island! Should be interesting...heh.
After that, my mom and my godmother arrive for a visit. We've lived on this island for 5+ years and they are finally getting around to gracing us with their presence. We are all excited to see them - should be fun tagging along with them as they take in the sights.
The rest of our summer seems to be filling up with hiking, swimming lessons, soccer practice, Vacation Bible School, days at the beach (yay for jet skis and boats with innertubes and water skis!), BBQs, and the like. Not a bad way to live, if you ask me. The rest of our lives still hangs in limbo but our summertime activities do a lot to distract us from that fact.
Once I find my card-reader, I will download pictures from our latest hike and from our beach excursions. Hope things are well with you all!
In the meantime, we continue to pray for everyone in MacGyver's company and the Brigade as they begin to make their way home over the next few weeks. We're hoping to be here to welcome them home.
