So sorry. I didn't take ANY pictures today. As in ZERO. In my head I reasoned that A LOT of other people were taking photos and that I should "live in the moment" and not worry about capturing it for other people. And then there's also that I didn't feel like lugging around my camera. That might have been the bigger motivation. It's not my fault God made me too lazy. :)
BUT... I do not wish to disappoint, so, let me post a few links to some interesting info about the team.
Here's is a link to a couple of pics so far.... http://www.flickr.com/photos/crosspointe/sets/72157622575880346/
Also, the group is updating Stephen's blog everyday-- Check it out from different points of view:
Finally, while I am on the subject of posting links-- this doesn't really have to do with the Crosspointe team but more with our Haiti team... Leann, my dear friend and team member here on the ground in Jacmel posted some great pics of Riann (her 3 year old daughter) and Josiah. Josiah and Riann are cut from the same cloth. (Not literally. I assure you.) But they are both strong personalities and... hem... strong willed? They are a hoot together. I like it when Josiah plays with Riann because she's the only person around here that I don't have to worry about him hitting. I mean yes, he WILL hit her. No question about it. But it's 50/50 odds as to who will throw the first punch. And they can both take a punch too. Sooner or later, one of them will come tell me that one of them hit the other. I can yell, "work it out!" from the other room, the tattling party will go back to the offended party and say, "my mom said to work it out" and they will. And then they will move on. It's refreshing in a bizarre way.
Music camp is over. Today about frazzled my nerves. Well, actually it did. We decided last minute that we didn't want to leave Josiah and brought him along. Which means he skipped his nap. Bad plan. At one point I ended up going over to our truck and just sitting with him for about 20 minutes in the air conditioning. I needed the break just as much as he did. Plus, I got to be with him one on one for a little bit. My goal is to find time like that for Nico tomorrow.
Speaking of tomorrow-- it's my anniversary tomorrow... NINE YEARS married to Nick Mangine. Man I love that guy.
