This past year (2010) was our first full year in Illinois….it brought challenges, joy, heartaches, excitement, frustrations, celebrations, and a chance to start it all over again….
Here’s to 2010:
Paul also did some traveling in March….he went to Indiana, Iowa, and a couple of more places in Illinois, recruiting for counselors.
I also saw some sweet friends: Dawn, Jen and Jeff, Becky, Meagan, and Beverly….
To see more, you can go here…
We celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary. You can read about it here…
Summer Camp began
Paul also celebrated his 30th birthday. He spent the day driving to Iowa and I cooked lunch for 85 people!
We celebrated July 4th by eating at Jim and Ember’s and then going to watch fireworks in Chillicothe.
For some reason, that picture is tiny….sorry…
CAMP WAS OVER!!
You can read about the rest of his adventure here….
Luckily my birthday does not fall during camp season, so we celebrated my 30th birthday by going to Rockford and Moline, IL….
The best part of August!!!
I also got to see…

Man, looking back….August was a busy month!
My aunt and uncle came to visit for a night, so we went to Tanner’s Orchard
Most of my posts in September were about my trip to New York (in August), so apparently not much happened in September. Except, we did start having a small group meet at our house. We are blessed to have sweet friends, the Cline’s, who have loved us, embraced us, prayed for us, and fed us over the past few months.
Not much happened in October, either, but you can go here to see the beautiful fall colors.
We spent Thanksgiving Day with some friends from church, the Cline’s and the Kelly’s. We enjoyed having somewhere to go.
You can see more pictures here…
And, lastly, Paul and I rang in the New Year hanging out with the Cline’s, the Kelly’s, and the Harnesses…
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
