Holidays a comin', Holidays a Comin'

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.

    Ooh! Have fun!

  2. Enjoy your well-deserved vacation and study leave. It is a good time of year for tenting -- no mosquitoes. However, take a warm sweater for the evenings.... and keep your eyes open for Northern Lights, which are great this time of the year.
