The last few months have been eventful! JB and I moved some of our crap to Tulare California for the summer long internship at Tulare Community Church. We drove from Holland to Chicago to hang out with his family for a day then off through WI and MN to get to South Dakota to see the Badlands and Mt. Rushmore. It was super foggy and we had a hard time seeing the faces...but we did get a couple of good shots.
Then we drove to Colorado to visit our good friends Dan and Crystal. After a few days of relaxing and playing the Wii we headed off to St. George Utah to spend the night before our trek to Chino. We stayed a few days with my family and then headed up to Tulare. We had a week of not knowing where we were going to live (if you know me you know how much i hate living out of luggage....) but then we finally got hooked up with a sister of my mom's friend who just bought a house with a guest house on the property. Well...it's pretty much amazing. Look at all the fun pics on my facebook...seriously...i almost died when we moved our stuff in.
JB has been hard at work writing sermons, helping out at VBS and doing a few sundays of worship leading. Two weeks ago we went with the junior highers to a retreat at PLNU (my old stomping grounds!) where we were completely surrounded by noise almost 24/7. good gosh! i was so happy to home without noise...i love quiet time!!!!!! :) but it was fun too! getting to know some pretty cool junior highers was good for me. but it was weird being surrounded by a ton of little people who were dressed in 80's style clothing. really really weird! now if only 80's music would come back in style! ha ha ha
Surprisingly we only have 2 1/2 more weeks before we're done here at Tulare and then we spend a week and a half with my family in Chino and San Diego. Then it's off for Holland MI again! another 40 hours in a car....mother of pearl!!!!! i HATE road trips...
anyways. I've really missed all the fun friends in Holland this summer. it just makes it that much harder to leave again in year! ugh. i hate change!!!!! can't all the people i love just live in one place???? is it too much to ask for?
