Ahh...The mountain air...

Wow...what a great trip. The Red River Family Encampment is such a blessing. We enjoyed cool mountain temperatures, rain showers, good lessons and lots of coffee and fellowship with loved ones. Here are a few pictures, but I did not take as many as I normally do because I was too busy just having fun or being a little lazy. :) Blessings on your day and here was my encouraging verse from this morning's bible study-

Job 8:21-
He will fill your mouth with laughter
and your lips with shouts of joy!

One of my favorite spots
Beautiful flowers

The McCoy's singing away. What fun we have had.

Another favorite spot. The sound of a river flowing is one of the best sounds in the world to me.

The boys coming back down a mountain after an interesting hike.

Wow. More beautiful flowers.

The children's fishing pond

This is the sight of well...the break in and destruction of our condo. (Well, that is another blog entry for when I get the video. It was a candid camera staged break in and stealing of all of our valuables.) I have to say it was quite hilarious. More on that to come...

Laughter (a little from the boys and a lot from the parents) after the break in.

The view out our balcony. Lovely.

The road home. Why is it always longer than when the drive up?

One of our favorite sights. Somewhere out in the wide open spaces of New Mexico.
Hope that your summer is going great and you are looking for joy everyday. We loved being with our family and miss them terribly. I pray for more time to be together. We missed you Colt and Sid!
Blessings. Amy

When does Will leave for Harding?

We should be up your way in early August.
Love ya. Could use some time sharing, laughing, praying, eating, crying.....

Miss you and come home! Getting together sounds great to me. Will leaves August 7th. Hope that re-entry camp goes great for Jedidiah. I am sure it will. Let me know when you arrive in the states and we will get together. Amy
