Our Summer

Below are a bunch of posts summarizing some of the highlights of our summer. We got in a lot of backpacking and time with friends and family. The count down is on for our big trip to Africa. We leave in less than four weeks. We have been training hard, learning some Swahili, and coordinating last minute plans. I sent out an email to friends and family discussing an opportunity we have to help a few schools in Tanzania while we are there. We are carrying books, clothing, and supplies and are collecting money to give as a donation to the schools. If you would like to help, please send me an email or leave a comment and I will get you more information.
I apologize for the lack or makeup I am wearing in almost all of the photos I posted today. I guess I am feeling brave. Makeup is overrated anyway right?
One thing I didn't mention is that Michael and I celebrated our 3 year anniversary last week. It was awesome. The adventure continues...
