We certainly needed the little bit of exercise we had when Joy led us on her (and Jordy's) first Geocaching experience! She trekked us up the mountain a ways to a great view where we found one of two Geocaches. Maggie almost pulled Jon into the lake--but we didn't want any repeats of our Echo Lake experience; You know, it is the one where Tim was pulled into the ice-water, backwards. I panicked and everyone else laughed.
Don't worry, though! The boys each had their fair share of being frozen in glacial waters... By their own choice, mind you. On Saturday, it was so sunny and warm that we went down to the "beach" to sun. The girls just soaked in the rays, but the boys (and Maggie) took the plunge. They stayed in just long enough to get wet, and didn't heed to Maggie's begging for more play time with her in the water.
We are so blessed to be a part of this lovely creation. I am constantly in AWE of our Lord's great workings in our lives. Now that I am not working at Hope anymore, I am still on the job hunt... seeking a FT nanny position. This makes me excited for things to come, but it also makes Tim and I very anxious. Pray with us as we seek HIS will for us in this world. Since our interest is growing with the idea of Native people ministry, we are anticipating a fun adventure to Minnesota the beginning of August. We will get to meet and see the school up North on the Reservation in Red Lake, and learn more about their needs. Also, we get to see our families, and friends!
