Finally getting there...

Finally getting there...

Caught up that is,  it's been 2 weeks since we've returned and I'm finally close to getting all the pictures sorted through from the trip.

Did I ever tell you how many I took? 

I honestly can't remember if I did or not. 

The grand total was....drum roll please.....

4,185 pictures!!!!!

Crazy right?!!  That's what I thought when I got the final total.

I'm still not finished sorting through all of them.  I've got a folder and a half (I put them together by memory card) left to sort through.  I'm not sure when I'll get to editing some of them but hey I've got plenty of time for that later on.

It's strange though, we've only been back 2 weeks.  Yet it seems like the trip was months ago not only a matter of days. 

I miss it.  As hard and challenging the trip was I wish I was still there. 
Which this time honestly seems strange to me.
Because it was SUCH A HARD TRIP.
But there were SO MANY good times in the bad.
Finding what we were all capable of in the extreme heat, tons of mosquitos, long days, serving in construction, medical clinics, orphanages...and many other ways.

But I miss being with other believers all day.
I miss serving with them,
for a common goal,
a common purpose,
serving God.

Sigh "normal life" is just so normal.
