What a weekend!

Friday to Monday is our senior teen camp, held at our youth leader's home. Our activites Friday went great! The gorgeous scenery of the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, folowed by great food and then bowling. Saturday we went to Belfast (Dundonald) to go putt-putt golfing and iceskating. Great fun, and as we were just finishing iceskating, Mark and I --hand-in-hand decided to take one more lap around the rink. The ice was quite choppy as it had been some time since they had cleaned the ice. Mark hit a hole in the ice, and valiantly tried to keep me from getting hurt as we fell. I managed to get up with only a few bruises-- to see my husband still on the ice. I knew when the entire rink stopped and Mark did not get up that something was really wrong. We had a lovely free ride in the ambulance (I hate socialism, but love social health care this weekend) to the hospital where we discovered that Mark's ankle is broken. He proceeds to get back from the hospital, and then preach his sermon he was scheduled for at the teen camp. In great pain, we made it to church (morphine from yesterday having long worn off). Sunday night he preached sitting down by the communion table with his foot propped up. For any of you that know my family, you may be counting how many falls the Wolf family has had in the last few months. First Rachelle falls on a sky slope-- to be followed by knee surgury. My mom almost dies falling down our basement steps, shattering her wrist and having surgery that included a metal plate etc... Then Garen falls from a 10 foot ladder at work, breaking his leg in several places.
And now Mark.
Warning: Avoid being around my family. We all will appreciate your prayers for recovery.

Family left for home

Grandma, & Nancy and John left yesterday to go back home. I feel a large loss as I get up this morning. It is kindof an alone feeling. Just Mark, me and God. I don't know how many times I have been sitting on the GBS bus and heard Dad say that someday we'd all be out there with just us and Jesus; but here I am. This is the real world. This is where you prove that God is enough.

But I digress. I really do miss Gram, Nancy and John. We had a great time doing touristing things. It was great. I really do live in one of the most beautiful places in the world. God has blessed. We live on one of the top 10 senic coasts in the world. And it has castles to boot!
As you can see-- mixed emotions. I miss them and am glad they came!

an entry-- can you believe it!

For anyone who would actully even check this blog. I have finally found time to post! Things are going fine here. The last 2 weeks have been youth camps, and the best sister-in-law in the world--Crystal-- was here to speak. She did a great job, but even more I needed her! and really enjoyed her being a part of my life for a while again!

Grandma Parsons will be here Saturday, and my aunt Nancy and Uncle John next week!
I love the company and showing them all the touristy things!

I love summer-- I actually had time to clean out my cabinets. I am jealous that my dad and his crew are having christmas program meetings without me. But such is life!
Love you all!
