that one.

we spent sunday-monday in trout lake, washington, which is near bz corner, washington, which is near white salmon, washington, which is near hood river.
which is near portland. :P

on sunday we went white water rafting. the first time for me in 9 years, for joel in about as long. it was 60 degrees outside, & the water was 40 degree glacier melt. they gave us wetsuits.

it was 4 of the most beautiful hours i've spent in a long time, except for the part where joel fell out in the middle of a rapid. (he's trained as a white water rafting guide, so he was fine ~ i think the guide was more freaked out than he was.)

the waterfall was the only class 5 rapid on the trip, and the guide spent the hour and a half before it prepping us for any possible thing that could go wrong, and instructing us on exactly what to do to make it go right. it was over in about a second.

catching up...

yay! august is over!

oh brother, it's september.

life keeps getting crazier ~ i have been telling myself that i would not blog until i could post pictures of our weekend with joel's mom and stepdad, our weekend down in california at joel's grandma's funeral with his dad and stepmom, our anniversary at the end of august, heidi's birthday last weekend... and instead of getting it done i just end up not blogging.

so now i shall blog, sans obligatory pictures. i still intend to post them all (probably sometime in november).

the church is in the thick of our building project ~ 2nd story, here we come!!!
i survived the jackhammering down the hall,
the constant beeping for hours on end during electrical work,
the fire alarm going off for upwards of a half hour at a time during alarm work,

but now, they are building right above my head, and i am working under a semi-constant rain of ceiling-tile stuff. i'm doing ok, but i don't know about my computer.
working here is always an adventure... lol.
