Benica Spring '09 Update

What’s new with us you may have been asking yourselves? Sometimes our blog becomes more of a philosophical outlet & we forget to write about the fun day-to-day things. The past few months have been a blur, but I will attempt to catch everyone up in a ‘promo’ of our life sort of way…

In March we went on a 10-day survey trip to Dublin, Ireland & have decided to pursue the possibility of going there with a mission team for 5-yrs. We are currently in the massive application process & psychological testing, so once they find out we’re crazies we may be out.

Neither of us had ever traveled to Europe & Ireland was amazing! The country, the culture, the people - it just felt right.

We’ve been to OK a whole lot in the past several months & the odometer on our car will prove it! On one of our many trips I was able to get together with two of my favorite girls in the world. Lacey, Christel & I have not all been in the same place in 3-yrs. since Christel’s wedding, so it was GREAT to catch up right where we left off!

On another OK trip we saw my brother & sister-in-law graduate from Oklahoma Christian University. Michael wore a very cool lime green shirt from Express & Ryan had on a super cute black, white & red dress - oh, & we were very proud of them for completing their college degrees too!

Some honorable mentions: Cali had her first ‘professional’ bath & got super cute bows in her hair, Ben & I have started listening to Christian music which (if you know us) is a BIG deal because we have always made fun of “those” people, our house could have burned down because of an electrical issue with our dryer but Ben saved the day & Monica found an awesome hot corn dip recipe that has been a big hit!
