For anyone who doesn't know, we are heading to South Africa over break. We will be in Stanger, a town near Durban. We leave on Tuesday the 16th and get back on the 26th. The trip is being organized through The Circle of Love Foundation. One of the students in Owen's class, her parent's started this medical missions foundation and organized a trip to coordinate with our break. We are not exactly sure of what we will be doing over there, but it will include a medical clinic, visiting the squatters camps, along with other things. We will also be going on a game drive to Hluhluwe Game Park, where there are supposed to be the "Big Five," lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, and rhino. We're pretty excited about everything, it should be a great trip and an amazing experience. We have a new camera which will hopefully capture our time there, and maybe some of the "5" ;) let's hope! Look for a post trip update in early September once we're back and caught up. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers throughout this time, especially for safety over everything.

|Congratulations to two of my favorite people, it was a wonderful day, thank you for having me be a part of it, love to you both!|
The main reason for my trip home was for Michelle and Evan's wedding. It was a wonderful day, full of fun and love. I was so thankful to be able to be a part of their day. Michelle was a beautiful, classic bride and Evan looked great, and both were so happy. They had both the ceremony and reception at the Simsbury Inn which worked out very well. It was 105* that day so we all appreciated staying in one place, inside. The Inn had many nice backdrops for pictures and I am excited to see their professional pictures. I have a few pictures from my camera, and a few borrowed from other peoples. The first few are from the rehersal dinner at the Brunetti's house, I brought back little island outfits for my "nephews" which they loved. Then a few pictures from the wedding. Well enjoy the pictures.
