Joseph went on his first mission trip to Slovakia, where he helped teach English at camps for some Slovak teens. The trip got off to a rocky start when he was turned down for entrance to his flight because his passport would expire just short of 3 months AFTER returning from Slovakia. We spent the weekend on the phone and online trying to secure an updated passport and then Monday travelled to the passport office in Chicago shortly before his newly scheduled flight left from O'Hare. Instead of traveling with his team, he had to fly alone and change flights in the middle of the night, but God delivered him safely to his team.

We said a sad good bye to our dog Daisy this summer after a sudden illness. We also bid farewell to our old Honda. This was the car I traded my Jeep for in early 1994 when I was pregnant with Mikaela. It was the only car I ever bought brand new, and it made it over 21 years.
