One of the many changes over the past few weeks was the process of selling our 2 vehicles in order to get 1 reliable car for Alaska. The car and the van had 115,000 each and were over 8 years old and we didn't feel like taking them to Alaska for Murphy's Law to take into effect when Jon gets deployed next spring. So we got a Glacier Blue all wheel drive Honda CRV as our only car right now. So far the week that we have been a one car family hasn't been so bad. This weekend we moved into our friend's Adam and Lisa Sealey's guest bedroom. We will see how being a one car family works living farther from where we both work. We might break down and use Adam's truck that he has offered if we are unable to manage and get along.
(SIDENOTE) The Sealey's have been some of our best friends in Waco these past 4 years we have been in lifegroup together. I have managed to break a few things at their house - I seem to become more clutzy at their house than anyother time. So far I have managed to only explode ketchup all over the kitchen and Adam. Even knowing that they are letting us live with them for a month - my goal is to leave not having broken anything (or at least repairable).
Back to Glacier Climbing - Adam has gone with Jon and I on our caching this weekend all over Waco. We have a goal of finding more than 100 before we leave Waco as of tonight we have 46 under our belts with 19 coming in the past 2 days. The caches can be anywhere not just in Waco. This is just a fun goal we set for ourselves and will do all in our power to reach it!!!

Our first water crossing to take off our boots and test out the water shoes. Still fun at this point. I ate some moldy beef jerky - who knew the stuff could mold? Especially since we just bought it - way to go Jon - but maybe it was penicillin I needed to keep me going???
4 happy campers again!! Showered, done hiking and on our way to On the Border for chips and salsa.

I, Ashley, am going to be a 2nd grade girl counselor with my co-leader Ashley. Won't that be fun the 2 Ashley's in camp have the same grade - but hey at least the kids will only have to remember one name. We have 14 girls that we will be responsible for. I am so excited because these are the girls in my small group (Sunday School class) that I have hung out with on Sunday's for the past year.
Jon lost his co-leader yesterday to work but hopefully they will find him a new one b/c he has 9 4th grade boys! Jon's group has some inner city kids going to their first camp ever!!! We are so excited for those boys - one of them is a boy Jon has hung out with for the past 2 years - he comes to the Feast and Journey with us each week - please pray for God to get ahold of this kid during the trip!
Please being praying for these kids!! Last night at our prayer time we really sensed - Joy, Salvation, and Life Changing Times for these kids.
I will keep you posted as we get closer and afterwards!
