Out with the old, in with the new - Part 1

We're here!! Can you believe it?! That's what we keep asking ourselves..."Do we really live in the Northeast?" And the answer would be YES! So far, it's been great. Challenging at times, yes, but such a sweet time in our lives and in our marriage. So, how did we get here? Here's what we've been up to lately:
  • We lived in Greece for five weeks! While we were there, we spent a few days in Athens getting to know the culture a bit, then headed to Ioannina, Greece for four weeks. We had a blast! Unfortunately, our memory card decided to "malfunction" the last few days of our trip. Translation: We have no personal pictures from our time in Greece. Thankfully, there were a plethora of cameras on our trip and so here are some of my faves that other peeps took:

Some of our team in Corinth:

Our team in Athens; these were our
16 "children" while in Greece:

Oh, just another day in front
of the Parthenon:

This was our first day in
Ioannina in front of the lake!
  • On our way back to the States, we made a stop in Ephesus, Turkey! This was one of my favorite parts of our trip! Such rich, Christian history in one place. Here are some of my favorite pics from this part of our trip:

This is the theatre of Ancient Ephesus. It
holds 25,000 people. Pretty amazing experience!

Jon and I in front of the Celsus Library,
the third largest of ancient sites:

Just enjoying some apple tea on
handmade Turkish rugs. No big deal!

This was the last ferry ride we took while
traveling. Thankfully, this was not the overnight,
ten-hour ferry we endured enjoyed earlier!
And that, my friends, concludes Part 1 of I don't know how many! Life is good, God is faithful, and we're enjoying the journey! More later!
