Camping Trip

We love to camp in the San Bernardino mountains! It's a refreshing break from the stress and chaos of daily life. We spend time hiking and reading together and lots of time taking care of basic needs (cooking, washing dishes, gathering wood, etc.). It's fun, but we're all thankful for modern appliances like dishwashers! What a blessing to have a wonderful family to spend time with. For more pictures, go to

Swim Day

When Michael and Nastassja used to do archery, Michael made a friend named Alex. Alex's mom is Ecuadoran and their family is moving to Quito when Alex's dad retires next year. How neat to have a friend who lives close here in the US and then who will be moving to Ecuador! Alex came over recently and they went swimming. Check out a few pictures at
