We are back!
It has been a crazy past few weeks, but we are now home sweet home!
Two weeks ago, we took our junior highers to Duluth for the week. We were looking so forward to this trip because we don’t get to spend as much time with the junior highers as we’d like to AND we had never been to Duluth before! Since moving to Minnesota, everyone kept telling us that we are going to LOVE Duluth, that it is very “us.” Well, they were right! We had such a fun week with them while in Duluth!
We stayed at the Edge Waterpark and Hotel, which helped us ALL become kids again! Never a dull moment in that waterpark!
This was the view from our hotel room balcony! It was also a retreat, so Dan led us in lessons each day. Such a blessed week! Here’s a glimpse of pictures of what we were up to.
One morning overlooking Lake Superior
The shoreline was beautiful!
Skipping rocks became our competition – Dan was hard to beat with 10 skips!
Checking out a little cave
The water was SO clear!
Crazy boys – that’s why they are such great leaders!
The bottom part goes up and down so that large boats and barges can go through – otherwise it is a road for cars. There was a boat coming in from Liberia that afternoon!
Gooseberry Falls – what a magnificent place!
Love this man!
On a hike…
Shoreline along Lake Superior
Love these girls!
Our Junior High Group – we had a BLAST with them!
After we arrived home from the junior high retreat, we left 12 hours later for Michigan, for my family’s vacation! It was a hectic turnaround, but everything fell into place and we left again at 4am Friday morning! Pictures to come!
