Fathers Day

This is Janessa, Zach's teacher for the last three weeks. He will have a new teacher for the next two, and he will miss her. She was such a sweetie!

We went to the air force chapel for Church this morning. It was an interesting experience. It was mostly tourists as far as I could tell that were there. Today was fathers day and they did have a nice message. Communion was taken up front in two long lines with the choice of wine or grape juice. I went with Drew and he chose grape juice.

The chapel has stain glass windows that go up all sides so when the sun hits them, it really shines through so beautifully on the inside.

We were sad to see most of our friends go on Friday. We are still at MTI, but our SPLICE program is finished and our PILAT program is begining on Monday night. New people have started to arrive and it is strange already to see new faces here. It is amazing how close you can get to people in three weeks.

The kids all went up to the train tracks with Jeff today and played in a huge dirt pile. They were all so filthy. After their baths I took this photo of Harley. Jeff got some good footage of the train. I'm sure he'll be making a great video of this place after we get home to share with you all.

I have so much in common with your blog post...first, I went to that church years ago. I always thought it was the most unique-looking church.

Second, I know how it can be getting so close to someone in a short time...I got really close to a head leader at Woodleaf this week, Becky. It was sad to say goodbye.

Third, we got dirty this week, too, but actually muddy. I can not wait to get the pictures from Ryan C. of the muddy games at camp. You'll never believe that I was head to toe in exageration. I had mud in my ears for two days! It was awesome!
