But what isn't amazing, is when your camera is busted (which you don't learn until the day you arrive at your destination). So, I can tell you all about it, but I can't SHOW you all about it...to do that, you'll have to check out my friend Skye's totally awesome blog.
The first week of August we joined three other couples (friends from seminary) and headed to Possum Kingdom Lake, in Texas. It was an amazing week of great food, great company, and a beautiful setting!
We played fun games at night (Skip-Bo and Mexican Train!).
We spent a lot of time on the boat-swimming in the middle of the lake, tubing, and just cruising.
We made beer can chicken (a first for me, and I think many there...)
And guess who lost his glasses at the bottom of the lake on the first day? Yes, my husband.
So...we also got to spend some quality time at the Wal-Mart vision center! The good news is that he's in contacts again, for the first time in several years...and handsome as ever!
We watched the sun set one night-it was gorgeous.
We got a little sunburned (ok, as of two days ago I was still peeling...gross!)
All in all, it was a fabulous week! Relaxing and filled with good friend time, which I desperately needed.
And, I finished reading a REALLY GOOD BOOK that I recommend to EVERYONE!
The Year of Living Biblically by A.J. Jacobs. HILARIOUS! He's a great writer.
So now, it's back to the real world...which is getting quite exciting. New students moved in today at Nebraska Wesleyan University...which means I'm about to get my first dose of "are you sure you know what you got into"-so if I talk to you on a regular basis, be prepared for the semi-frequent freaking out phone calls. But it's all good. I know God brought me here, and for some inexplicable reason thinks I'm capable of leading college-age persons through this phase in their life. Hopefully I have something decent to offer them in the process!
That's all for now. Next time, hopefully something with pictures!
