Golf & Fall

Golf has been the main topic of my world. I never thought golf or golf tournaments would be a part of my experience. But next Monday Young Life has one of our biggest fundraisers - a golf tournament. I know very little about golf and even less about golf tournaments. So it has been quite a learning experience to say the least.

Fall has arrived with its cool days and even colder nights. This week has been below normal and I am really hoping for some warmer days next week. My good friend Lorrie is coming to visit me for a few days next week. It will be a good break after the craziness of the golf tournament. I was hoping to mke it up to the mountains for a little photo shoot, but I am not sure that I can fit it in this weekend.

Thank you to all who have been asking about my dad and praying for him. He started his latest treatement trial this week. You can read more about it on their blog.

Labor Day Weekend

Last weekend I ventured back to Wildhorse Canyon in Oregon for a Young Life leader weekend. This was a retreat for leaders, volunteers, and staff of the Idaho and Seattle regions.

The best part of the weekend was the surpise of having an unexpected friend there! I had a blast renewing a frienship with Leslie. We met about 4 years ago as mutual friends of Joani Kroon Curtis. Leslie is a Young Life leader in Seattle. I hung out in the afternoons with her and her fellow leaders from Seattle. We had a lot of fun taking advantage of the zip lines, climbing walls, giant swing (in which they wench 3 people up on a giant swing about 50 feet in the air and you pull a rip cord... quite an adrenaline rush) and pool. The weather was perfect! Sitting on the deck of of the Sassy (the Sasparilla is the snack bar) with your feet up and visiting with friends... it doesn't get much better than that. We also had some seminars and club meetings about ministry and all aspects of Young Life. It was really a very fun and relaxing weekend.
