What a Week

Why is it that something the size of "a medium green olive" can throw you so out of wack? This week, Forrest and I had a lot of couch time, simply for the fact that Mom is having a hard time doing much more than laying around like a slug. So frustrating!

For Camp, this is our "down time." We are done with retreats and now it's time to clean up from winter and get ready for the summer. Summer Staff arrives in just 2 months!

We have weekends off for March and April, which means that we are on the same schedule as the rest of the planet. Last week we took a trip downstate. We were able to spend some time with my parents, brothers, sisters, and our sending church. We also took advantage of the civilization around us! During our week away we got haircuts, went out to eat, went for coffee, got to shop at World Market (on of my favorite stores!) and see the Andy Warhol exhibit at the new Grand Rapids Art Museum. I think that is a good dose of civilization. We should be set for a while.

On Thursday, we headed to Holland to hang out with friends we haven't seen since we moved. It was so fun to be with such good friends. And the amount of children present was astounding! We figure that there were 6 kids a year and under! Talk about chaos! It was great!

Sunday , of course, was Easter. It was Forrest's second, but the first time he was able to help with the Easter Egg hunt. His eggs were labeled just for him, because he had the special treat of Cheerios. He got to eat as many as he wanted. Life is good!

Yeah, Spring is on the move, but I managed to get stuck on the way to our weekly Staff Fellowship. And wouldn't you know, I was able to back up traffic for all of camp! How exciting!

Do you see how much snow is still here! Gross! We have not seen the ground since the day before Thanksgiving. It is time!
