Yesterday as we were driving home from three weeks of meetings in Virginia, John said, "I really think it would be good for you to start blogging." I told him, "I'm NOT a blogger!" He writes the prayer letters, but thought people would enjoy keeping up with our travels and hearing about the day to day of deputation. Example ~ The last two weeks we had, not exaggerating, around a thousand stinkbugs in the camper - more than I have seen in the rest of my life combined! We had contests for the kids as to who could catch and flush the most without squishing them. Believe me, they are called STINKbugs for a reason. See, I don't know if this is blog-worthy or just boring?
I am a blog reader, but I just don't know how good of a job I'll do as a blog writer. Maybe it's one of those things that I will get better at with practice, sort of like driving in reverse. I used to be really bad at driving in reverse, but now I'm pretty good at it, not great, but at least I don't back up into ditches like I did right after John and I got married.
I thought to start out, I'll try blogging in reverse to catch you up on what's been happening since our journey to Pohnpei began. Of course, I'll also want to let you know things that are happening now, so I'll probably end up going back and forth, back and forth. I'm really good at turning a three-point turn into a twenty-point turn, or in this case, with a year to catch up on, maybe a 365-point turn. :)
Where we're going and where we're coming from
