We had a great last weekend in Blacksburg. Saturday night we were treated to a fun good-bye party with our church family. We ate potatoes, learned fun facts about Idaho, chatted and prayed. The kids ran around (Liam literally ran around in circles) and wore themselves out.
Sunday we got to drive out to the Swinging Bridge restaurant in Paint Bank, and then go for a short hike at Glen Alton with our great friends the Steikas. I know we are all really going to miss them a lot, it was a huge treat to get to hang out with them for a whole afternoon. Kim is one of those rare and wonderful friends who has made the time and effort to invest in me even when we lived 2000 miles apart. So, what’s another few hundred miles on top of that? I’ll miss her terribly, but I know we’ll stay good friends, and for that I am so thankful!
