Getting ready!

August is going to be a busy month around here - or maybe not around here. That's why it's going to be busy...


The first week of the month, I'm flying to San Antonio for not quite a week to attend the annual conference for the American Association of Diabetes Educators. I'm going with one of my coworkers. She and I work opposite days of the week, so we rarely actually get to see each other. Our lives are intertwined, though, as my mom provides day care for her adult daughter who has Down Syndrome. Our two families spent Thanksgiving together last year. Joy just got married and we attended her wedding on the beach. Lots of new stuff in her life and I'm really looking forward to spending the time with her.

The third week of the month, Denis and I both have the privilege of serving as the medical team for the all new Oregon Joni and Friends Family Retreat! As you know, I was able to go to the California camp last year, which turned out to be a fly by the seat of my pants sort of experience. This year, Denis and I are getting to organize the entire medical plan for the Oregon camp, determine what supplies we want to have, etc. I'm so excited to get to share the experience with Denis, not only because his skill set is so much better suited for the job, but also for him to see first hand what a blessing this ministry is to the families that attend. It's hard to believe that it's just three weeks away! Things are falling into place, but there's still some planning left to do.

Yes, August sounds busy! I'm sure you will both be blessed beyond measure.

"Deingled"?- I'd like to know how one gets "ingled" in the first place?

Tracy said...

was that your word verification? deingled?

Martha said...

Yes, and now I have "lenti." I suppose that is "more than one "lentil?

That's so neat how you'll be involved with the Joni and Friends retreat!

"behet"--Would it be preferable to be het or to be hot?

I am glad you have so many good things to look forward to. I can't wait to hear about them when you get back.
