We're looking forward to our trip to N.C. this week. We will have an opportunity to spend time with some family, and we're hoping to see many friends as well. We should arrive on Wednesday in time for Shelly to attend choir practice at Biltmore Baptist. On Sunday after church, we'll drop Silas off at Camp Ridgecrest for a week. He's excited, as evidenced by his having packed (at least, what HE thinks he needs) for camp a couple of weeks ago.
We also hope to hear from Children's Hospital in Cincinnati by Tuesday with news of when they'll schedule Josiah's visit. We are eager to go and learn what the experts there can tell us.
Tonight we went to the summer staff Western Night. A huge storm hit partway through, but then the rain stopped and a huge, bright double rainbow lit up the sky...occasionally strikes of faraway lightning would flash around the rainbows. Certainly there are some things we miss about the southeast, but the skies out here are the most amazing we've ever seen!
Tomorrow night we'll meet Mamoo and Papa B for dinner in Santa Fe. He's speaking at a conference in Los Alamos this week, and we're thankful for the opportunity to spend some time with them.
