We have a small commitee being built in Saipan and have 9 volunteer leaders! So as of September we are hoping to have our first club! and Saipan first club ever! Pray for that please!
After the conference ended, we had a chance to meet up and spend a few days with some close family friends, the Johnson Family! While we were there we got to see Bill's new church, their new home and some sights of Colorado. One place to we got to be tourist's at was the "Garden of the Gods". Dad always talkes about this place, but we didnt realize how beautiful it was until we got there! If you are ever in CO and get a chance to go see it, do! It is amazing how much of an artist we has as a heavenly father!
It was a great 4 day weekend and mini vaca.

At the teacher's summit, I "got" to participate in Name that Tune!
Well we are back on Sawyer Farm for a few days and then headed to Spokane until next Wednesday. My brother Tom and nephew Aaron will be visiting for L.A... we havent seen them for almost 2 years so it will be great to be with them for a few days!
Then on Wednesday Mark and I will be driving to Seattle to spend a few days with the Tiegs family (Marks sister, her husband and our niece). Then on Friday I pack up and fly out of the Seattle Airport back to our island. Mark will be joining me at the end of August as he will be back here on the farm helping out with harvest. ( I am going to miss him like crazy!)
I cant believe how fast this summer has flown by! It has totally come and gone. I start school in 2.5 weeks and will be focusing on that and moving into our new home....
I am sad to say goodbye to all of our family and friends.... I wish we all lived closer... but sooner or later we will be once mark and I get back on to the Palouse.
We have missed Saipan too, so it will be good to get back there also.
Alright, well I am going to run and enjoy the time I have left here on the Farm!
