I know this website has been sadly lacking for updates, so I am finally taking time to write a post! Summer is wonderful! I can’t believe it’s July already though. In May we went to the Moody Family Reunion at Brown County State Park. We rented a beautiful cabin with Stephen’s family and enjoyed hiking, roasting s’mores, and playing volleyball and ping-pong. The hills reminded me of West Virginia.
My family came to visit us at the beginning of June. It was so much fun to show them our little home, our school, and our church. Charis and Ruth Anna spent the night with us while Rebekah, Mom, and Dad stayed in the church’s ministry apartment (just a few hundred feet from our house). They are now on their way to minister in Wyoming. They’ll eventually make it all the way to gorgeous Vancouver Island, British Columbia.
Later in June, I went to my dear friend’s house for a sleepover. Rebekah Pringle lives just over an hour away. Yes, even though I’m married and she was celebrating her 27th birthday, we still wanted to have a slumber party! I had so much fun catching up on all the heart-to-heart talks we’ve missed, taking a boat ride on her family’s pond, singing songs around the piano, and being able to wish her a happy birthday in person!
Being the church secretary this summer has been good for me. I’m doing a lot more with the computer than I’ve done recently. I consider myself Stephen’s little “geek-in-training” although I know I will never measure up to his vast skill and knowledge. He’s really been enjoying setting up the network for the school and church. Right now he’s designing a website for a couple in our church that breeds and sells dogs.
On the 11th of this month we’re flying out to Utah for a week. I love Utah! I’ve missed the sunshine and red rocks. We plan to visit Bryce Canyon National Park, Zion National Park, and St. George (where I lived last year).
One more thing, I actually got to play my mountain dulcimer for our church’s Hillbilly VBS this month! My dad had given it to me for my wedding and I finally got to play it with “The Possum Band” made up of another dulcimer, a guitar, and a ukulele. I really miss WV mountain music!
