Sometimes I feel like I'm just watching my life fly by. In the summer, when routines are thrown out the window and spontaneity is the only constant, I (Amy) eventually give up on trying to control my schedule and decide to just ride it out until September. That's how I'm feeling right now. Some days I get frustrated that I haven't accomplished everything I set out to do in these first few weeks of June. (One of these days I'm going to pack all those half-read library books up in a bag and send them right back where they came from, so that someone else can experience the mini guilt trip I endure every time I glance their direction ;-). Despite the craziness, though, I really am loving life these days. I love that there's always something to do, and someone to do it with. And I love being reminded that my life is way out of control, I mean. The peace I find amidst this busy-ness lets me know that my God is still in control. And that's exactly how it should be.

Quick Update

Wow. I just realized it's been over a month since we last posted. Sorry about that. This past month has been really fun and really, really busy. We've been enjoying some beautiful sunny days by inviting lots of friends over for bike rides and yard games. I (Amy) have also been working every other day at the university I attend. I love my job! I do secretarial work, and there's rarely a dull moment. The people I work with are wonderful! I am so thankful for this position. And since I'm only working every other day, I have time to volunteer at the camp I worked at last summer. It has been such a blessing to reconnect with the old staff and meet the new summer staff. I have had so much fun working in the kitchen and helping kids in the craft shack! There's so much more I want to write, but I have to get ready for work tomorrow. I will try to write more before another month goes by...
