Beech Mountain Team Building

Team building in the mountains is the way to go! We finally got to meet as families just having fun together. All of the kids really hit it off and enjoyed exploring their new surroundings together. The "big" kids (aka the adults) had lots of time for talking, laughing, sharing and dreaming about the future once the little ones went to bed. We are very excited to serve with these families and look forward to what God has in store for us in Vienna!

Are these kids cute or what...can you imagine all of them speaking German with a Viennese dialect?

One of our traditions in NC is to go fishing. It was a very special fishing trip for Emily and Ewan, as they had never gone fishing before. Everyone caught a fish and we enjoyed trout for dinner...sort of... I'll spare you the photos of removing the skin and bones and then deep fat frying it! It was all about the total experience I suppose.

And if we weren't having a ton of fun already...then it snowed 6 1/2 inches! I don't know who was more excited, Brad or the kids! They went sledding at the golf course and on the closed ski slopes! It definitely was a suprise highlight of the trip!

I'll close with one of my favorite shots of Levi...expressing pure joy as he played with his new friends!

We were praying for you each day! (Samuel was praying for your friend-members...that's how he put it.) Glad to hear and see that you had a wonderful time. I am admittedly jealous that they got a whole week with the Hunters!!! Some day...
