The doorbell rang this morning and Noah went to see who it was. It was the UPS man. Noah being his cynical self (don't know where he gets that! ) says "Mom, what did you order this time?" Noah always complains about how the mail/pkgs are never for him. I ofcourse always ask him when was the last time he sent someone a letter or package. I'm very compassionate that way. Anyway, I finally revealed that the large box sitting at our door was a
Valentine's package for them from Grandy and Nana. This is the elation that followed.
In January we took our annual trip to PCB for the Gulf Coast Getaway
(http://www.gulfcoastgetaway.org/). This is a conference for college students that Duane helps to organize every year. It was a cold weekend, but that didn't stop the kids from begging to hang out on the beach and around the hot tub. The Getaway went really well. Around 1600 students came. Duane and the rest of the board members did a great job and God showed up in a huge way! I didn't take many pics, but here are a few.
