"Workin' at the Car Wash, Girl"

This past Saturday we volunteered to help raise some funds for a good cause. A car wash was held at Broadneck Evangelical Presbyterian Church to support Matt & Emily Sroka's upcoming trip to Tanzania. They will be working for Village School International, teaching English and sharing the gospel.
While I worked the drying and window washing station, and Laura scrubbed and rinsed, Mackinzie split her time between hosing off cars and bringing in the business with her cousin, Emma.

We had a fun afternoon altogether.
Matt and Emily have set up their own blog and we encourage you to follow them and keep them in your prayers. They depart in September and will be in Africa for almost an entire year!

Two Weeks From Tomorrow

Long time, no blog...
Summer 2010 is upon us and along with it, we hope to do lots of blogging.
Two weeks from tomorrow we depart for our summer vacation. We will be spending an entire week in the Outer Banks, North Carolina (Corolla) in a big beach house with the entire Sroka family. You might remember we made the same trip two years ago.
After that, we will continue to head south to Orlando, Florida (technically, Leesburg, FL) where we will spend the remaining three and a half weeks enjoying some relaxation and Disney magic. (I will be trying to squeeze somewhat of a regular working schedule in there too)
This trip will require lots of driving, so hopefully Laura and I will enjoy lots of this:
..... and this:
Be sure to check back regularly to see what we have been up to. We'll be sure to include lots of photos!
Also, check out the new Twitter feed on the right-hand potion of the blog where you can receive live real-time updates of what is going on with me and Laura.
