A Week in the Life: Two For the Price of One!

a week in the life

It’s been a busy two weeks!  Between camping, cleaning and writing support letters for Bolivia (my intended departure date is coming up fast!) I couldn’t seem to find the time to post my week’s in the life, but there’s good news!  Two bits of good news actually, first, my family has finally left the stoneage and purchased a wireless router!  I’ve gotten so much done in three hours already, this amount would have taken me at least a week when I used to have to “plug in” my laptop.  So thankful those days are over!  And the second bit of good news is I have a few actual, meaty, non-week in the life blog’s to post in the next few days, so get ready!

To bad I was not a fan of Total Recall. 5. I was blessed to have the opportunity to photograph my dear friend MB’s wedding.  I was so busy with my DSLR that I only got the chance to snap this one pic on Instagram. 6.  She also hapened to get married on the hottest day of the year, it made for some gorgeous pics though.  I snapped this one on the drive home.  7. My favorite little town in Washington, Leavenworth.  A bit of Bavaria in Washington State! 8. Forest fires are ripping up Eastern Washington right now.  It breaks my heart.

1.  I spent a week reading, relaxing and swimming at Eastern WA’s Lake Bonaparte. 2. Lake Bonaparte from our cabins porch. 3. My favorite game ever!  Discovered by my team in Bolivia, I found it at a store in Leavenworth and my sister and I played it all week! 4. Cooling off with Ellie in the lake.  The water was crystal clear, I loved it. 5. I’ve always known about Leavenworth, the themed Bavarian town, but I never knew about Winthrop, a themed Cowboy town!  It was pretty cool.  6.  Taking the long way home across the North Cascades Highway, possibly the prettiest drive I’ve ever been on, and I love the color of Diablo Lake! 7.  Celebrating my birthday with my family.  To appease the masses I passed over my traditional funfetti cake for a red velvet cake instead.  It was a hit.  8.  Spending time with our incredible neighbors, wishing they didn’t primarily live in Hawaii/Germany.

So there you have it.  Two weeks in the life!  Now, I just can’t wait for the weeks I spend in Bolivia and the cool things God is going to show!
