Its been short and very, very sweet. Good bye abundant heat, good bye lakes and swimming, good bye our dearest friends and family, good bye Minnesota! The gypsies are on the move again, in ten short days we will be in one of our favorite places on earth (perhaps my most favorite place)...Holden Village! The princess will begin first grade in their two room school house and I will be serving as a musician for worship every evening. After a year of full time pastoring and putting music on the back burner I am so very ready to get back on the piano bench. Micaela is really excited (mostly for the hot tub) which makes me excited, too.
So, hello breath taking mountain views, hello chalets and front porches, hello autumn leaves and unpaved paths, hello music and hiking and hot tubs and new faces!
I plan to keep blogging and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org if needed. No cell service for us until after Christmas! At that point I should have a very good idea of where our next home will be. Until that point we'll stay the sassy gypsies we are and embrace the sweet ride and all the tramps and thieves we meet along the way.
Are you wondering why in the world we would hide away in the mountains for the next few months...the picture below might give you a better idea!
