a happy reunion, a good weekend, and a trip to Harrisburg

At 10:00 p.m. on the 13th my oldest brother, Rich, Sam, and Rich’s daughter, Noelani went to the airport to pick up my parents.  I was right, a year does go by fast!

We spent parts of the next 3 days with them.  What a good time we had!

And then on Saturday, we took off again for yet another little trip.  This time to Baltimore…Baltimore, Ohio, that is.  We stayed with a lovely lady and her son and got to know them a bit better, swam in their pool, and on Sunday,shared our life in Quebec with another of our churches.  mid-summerAnd then my brother, Dan, along with Jake and Lydia, came to pick up our kids and take them to their home in Dayton.  Mark and I shoved off not too much longer for a 6  1/2 hour trip to Harrisburg, PA, to our mission’s Enrichment Conference. 

Thanks to all our friends and family who are taking care of our kids this week while Mark and I go to meetings, spend time with old friends, and make new friends.  Just one more day, and we’ll head back to be with our boys and to have a great weekend with all the Ernsts.

Note:  this post is so boring, it almost put ME to sleep.
