Summer. It used to be my favorite season, now I think it is just the busiest. It started with Mexico - which was phenomenal-, family visits, family reunion, and now completely immersed in Camp! I am tired, but happy.
I included a few Mexico pictures. I have a lot of Norse working, but I couldn't find many with me working (no laughing). Do you ever have those moments when God speaks to you, and you obey? Those moments when I actually hear Gods voice AND obey are rare, but amazing. This was one of those times. It was refreshing and again renewed in me the faith that I sometimes doubt. I went into the trip thinking that Norse and I were going to be used "as a couple" to glorify the Lord and I think God used us, stretched us, and changed us more as individuals.
We got home and here came the family, first mine. I know I am biased, but I love my family. We laugh, we're loud, and we love with our whole hearts. You'll never get a wimpy hug from a Jury. I miss them. Then it was to the Swansons! And I am so thankful for great in-laws. I have learned that they love different from my family, but wonderfully. We had a good time together and I am starting to feel like a real part of the family. (Not that they ever treated me differently, but I am insecure) I miss them too, but I can't wait to see them at Greta's wedding!
Now it's back to work for Norse and back to Camp for me. Norse is amazing, in case some of you didn't know this already, he truly is and I don't know what I would do without his constant help and encouragement. He works so hard and is almost finished with our log bed! I am busy at camp and sadly it's the dog that suffers, but we are doing great.
There it is the addendum to my initial posting, hopefully you are somewhat up to date now. I'll try to keep updated and at least post pictures, since they say a thousand words anyway.
