We had a wonderful but short summer as a family even though we were apart a bunch. Marcus and Jessica went on two international trips, both with mission work. In June they were in Kenya serving with a group from their church. In July they went to train pastors in India then went on to a dream vacation in Australia and New Zealand. Micah and Abby got time at home with both sets of grandparents and time in New York with both sets of grandparents and aunts and uncles. They also got to go to church summer camp once again. The school year is off to a great start. Micah is doing Marching Band and that has gone well and Abby did Cross Country for this first time this year. They are in 8th grade (Micah) and 6th grade (Abby). Life is full and good!
