Memorial Day and changing things up.

Waiting for the Memorial Day Parade
The weather today was sunny, hot, cloudy, and a bit of rain. Good news, bad news, good feelings, sad feelings...a mixed up crazy kind of day.

We sent Memorial Day with family: Memorial Day Parade, hamburgers, swimming, and helping Eli.

Texted a bit with Cory around lunch. On seeing the fence parts yesterday he decided that it would be to heavy for our vehicle and he didn't want to risk damaging the Land Cruiser by taking a load up the mountain.

He now plans on planting only the plants and trees that he knows that cattle do not like. He will try to share a dump truck during the summer to get the fence up the mountain.

He could not get the supplies he wished for finishing the floor of the house but will 'make do'. He plans to head north early next week

We've totally enjoyed every moment with Eli over the last couple of weeks. Last night he applied to be a cabin leader at Camp Beechpoint. Today just after lunch he had a phone interview and shortly after 3:30 P.M. he was at camp joining in with the staff who started training yesterday.

We know that he will be a blessing and that the Lord will bless him for stepped outside of his comfort zone. He will take one week off the end of June to help with the Global Partners missionary kids while their parents attend Reequip training at IWU.

But we mourn the time that we will not get to spend with him.  This also means that I will be doing more driving than I've done in a very long time until Cory returns.
Smile hiding the chattering teeth...

We will be able to connect on weekends and look forward to hearing how the Lord is using and changing Eli. We are very proud.

I spend part of today contacting supporting churches. Added a couple visits to our schedule. Learned htat one of our long time supporting churches will sadly be closing in a few weeks. We will be praying for them.

Fritzlin did school early in the morning so that he could play with a wooden train set borrowed for the summer from his older cousins.

Anna finished up her math for the year! She plans on finishing up her reading tonight which is good timing as her diploma came in the mail today.

Now she can turn her focus toward preparing for Calvin in the fall and driver's education next week.
