Tofino , moving, work and Bella Coola

It has been too long since I updated this blog, but if you have seen me lately, you understand why. Trying to find a place to live while Shane was back at work, going back to work myself to teach 7 new courses and preparing for a ministry evaluation in October, and discovering something clinging to me have all kept me busy. So, I'll try and do a run down and add some pictures along the way.

A few months ago, Shane decided to plan a weekend in Tofino for friends and people. We thought we might be the only ones going at one point, but we ended up being represented by 3 countries after all. We decided to call our site Camp Random and we were made up of: Shane, Tracey, Carlo and Jon from Victoria; Nicole, Char, Josiah and Daniel from Vancouver; Lindsay (Zor) from Penticton; Angelique from the prairies; Miles from New Zealand; and Marina from Switzerland.
We had a great time surfing, eating and drinking around the campfire with little to no injuries to speak of, but you may not want to ask Shane to do a 360 anytime soon!

Camp Random!!!

Good work, grasshoppers!

Reflecting on my reflection!

I think this is for August in the speedo calendar!

I went back to work at the end of August and got right to work planning for 4 of my 7 new courses. It was great to be back at work and seeing all of my friends, but I was getting frustrated with my inability to concentrate. Planning for the next week was way harder than it normally would have been, but...

After taking an expired test and convincing myself that there wasn't a second pink line, everything started making sense. Yes, Tammy, you told me so, but it took a trip to the doctor to assure me that I wasn't crazy...just 5 weeks pregnant! SO, now we start a new chapter.

All those glorious changes you thought only happened when moms were ready to pop, actually start right away. I'm not going to go into detail, but all those moms know what I'm talking about. Suddenly you feel like you need to eat but can't, need to pee but can't, and need to sleep but can't. I heard it gets better, but all I have to say is this child better be cute!

Until next time, keep Shane, myself and Baby Bella Coola (ask my mom) in your prayers!
