First things first, as I type I am sitting in almost 100-degree shade in Key Largo, FL. We flew here last week to meet up with Daniel's brother and his family for a quick little vacation before I head back to work. This is my first time in the Keys - really, my first time in Florida other than Occalla - and even though August is definitely the WORST time to visit, we are having a ball. It's very beautiful to be surrounded by nature, and seeing the family was such a treat. The place where we're staying is called Coconut Bay and it's perfect, small and quiet, plus we have free use of the kayaks.
The other thing is today is my and Daniel's 2 year anniversary! Yes, just two years ago we were in similar heat and humidity on the coast of Lake Michigan pulling ourselves together to have a wonderful, memorable wedding. This trip is a fun way to celebrate that day... especially now that the rest of the family has flown back to Peru and we have one day to ourselves. I won't spend a lot of time posting now, but when I get back in town I will post all about the many projects we've been working on at our house. August always seems like a crazy month, but because Calvin doesn't start classes until september 8, hopefully it won't be so intense. I have a couple conferences these next two weeks that I'm really excited about... the first is WillowCreek's "leadership summit". Well... I'm KINDOF excited about that one. Next is Practicing Resurrection up in Canada. If you're not doing anything the weekend of the 15th, come up and join the conference!!! It's cheap and valuable.
