A week from now I won't be here. In all likelihood I will be in a tent trying (vainly? desperately? convincingly?) to convince my daughters to go to sleep.
We leave on our vactation next WEdnexsday morning. 3 weeks of vacation with a week of study leave mixed in for 4 weeks total. A trip to the land of my childhood, time to do the "touristy" things there. A retreat, time to center and envision the future. A reunion at the camp that started me on the path to ministry.
Oh and three nights of tenting with a 3 month old, a 2 year old, a 3 year old, and a dog who has never tented before on the way out.
THat retreat may be verrrrrrrrrry welcome come August 28th.
