Jo & Tab decided to go on a hike the other day. If you
didn't know, Joanna is not much of a hiker and she is a
hypochondriac. The two do not mix. : ) She thought she
was going to die the second we walked out of the
apartment. Surely she was going to get attacked by a
snake. Or perhaps she would get a tick. We reassured
her nothing would think to come near her - she is quite
loud and would have scared anything away! You all
can be thankful pictures don't have sound. : )
She grabbed her water bottle and started drinking
like we were lost in a desert the second
we walked out of the door.
We weren't even to the trail and she grabbed a granola bar
from the bag. She was dying of starvation!! Dramatic?! : )
As we were hiking, I wondered why my bag felt so heavy.
I looked down to see Joanna hanging on for dear life.
I don't know if it was to help her up the trail or to save
her from the big lions and bears we faced ahead? : )
We didn't get very far but we had fun. Thankfully we made
it back in one piece. Just barely though...we had a couple
of attacks from very mean, wild, vicious butterflies. : )
Might as well have been a bear the way Joanna reacted!
Rebekah does an awesome job teaching the deaf girls.
Ronnie Rice had fun playing Abby's phone as a harmonica. : )
He was trying to teach Joanna how to finger spell
cat & dog at the same time. Try it - it's hard!
Bill & Mary Rice invited us over for ice cream after
the Wednesday evening service. They have a beautiful
log cabin. We enjoyed our time with them and hearing
all of their interesting stories! We could have listened
to them talk all night! As we were leaving, Joanna
was thanking them and telling them how much we
enjoyed being there. She walked right out of
the house without her shoes. : )
