This past weekend we went away with another missionary family to their lake cottage. I’ve mentioned them before as being instrumental in making us feel at home here. It was a much needed break and the views were breathtakingly beautiful.
The last few months have been a whirlwind. We have been preparing for the trip here which included getting visas, Kasen’s passport, doctor’s appointments for immunizations and prescriptions, etc., etc. Kai also took his licensing exam (and passed!!) which is months of preparation in finding just the right patients. He also had been working hard to fulfill all the requirements for graduation so we could leave for the last quarter of dental school. As soon as we get back home we’re heading out on another trip, then immediately after is graduation, and then we'll be packing up our home.
Needless to say, the stress has been mounting for several months and this little getaway made us feel recreated and back to normal again. We canoed, hiked, took the speedboat out on the expansive lake system, talked, laughed, had wonderful food, great company, and great times!
Some of the pictures in the last post were from this weekend away, but here are a few more.
