January was such a typical January for us, and for that I am grateful. We have, for the past 6 years had a Trip to MN (to celebrate Christmas), High School retreat, and The Covenant Youth Workers Connection/MidWinter. This year was fabulously close to the same. Although we did not get to MN this January, we enjoyed a few more out of town guests than normal, so it kept us busy. Our High School retreat was 'unfortunately' to Monarch Mountain in CO to ski...see the first 2 pictures. Suffering for the Lord, that's what we like to call it.
The boys were able to stay in MN with family during the ski trip and they had a blast too. Pretty sure Grammas and Grampas, Aunties and Uncles were happy to see them too.
Youth Worker Connection was in Chicago this year and Tim and I enjoyed a great weekend connecting with lots of friends from miles away. It did my heart well to receive and give lots of hugs and share conversation with many friends I see once a year, but others I talk with often. We had a relaxing and wonderful time, while the boys stayed in Kansas with some of our newest family from Hillcrest - all parties involved had a blast!
