Sunday of Labor Day Weekend I slept until noon (remember the whole sleeping like a baby thing)! Steph and I listened to church on the computer. Went mushing on the four wheeler with Sherry while Steph babysat Sherry's little ones, Einer and Addy (Jim says she's practicing;).
Today, Monday of Labor Day Weekend, Steph and I went low bush cranberry picking. The blueberries are done and the cranberries are ready. Later ran to the Arolik River with Sherry, an 8 mile round trip:) Finally the day ended with a great night of bible study with several ladies from the village. I am so blessed to be here in this place right now, I am blessed to have family and friends who are sharing this journey with me. I wish you could all come visit. Come meet Fannie and her beautiful family, go to church and hear the Yu'pik words, take a walk to the store maybe purchase your very own 'quspak' (Yu'pik shirt worn by everyone). We could pick berries, maybe jog/walk with Ani to the beach, maybe we could even find someone with a boat to take us up river. It would be fun if you could be here. But our journeys are different right now and I can't have everything I want so I hope you smile knowing in my heart you are all here:)
Oh yes, God—a free and full life!" Psalm 118:23-25
