Summer Vacation

Two of them: one with the family and one just with Thing2.

The family is going to Tennessee in June. Something about the Country Music Fan Fest or something like that. The wife will have fun and the rest of us, well, we find something to do.

The trip Thing2 and I will be taking is a bit different. Our church's senior high youth leader is working on a trip to the Gulf Coast (probably Mississippi) to work with Lutheran Disaster Relief in rebuilding homes.

Have you ever had something come up in your life that you just felt you had to do? Thats how I felt last night when the leader was describing the trip. Like many Americans I donated money post Katrina and Rita. But that seems distant. Spending a week there actually having a positive impact on someones life? That is just too awesome of a challenge to pass up. I hope everything works out so we can go.

Mississippi in July - should be a bit on the warm side. Probably humid as well. Can't wait!
