I do Not have rabies....

Ok, so I know there's been a lot of you concerned about my health and whether or not I have rabies. (I know this cause I've received tweets about it.) So i found out that in my baby sisters last blog she mentioned that I had gotten rabies from a pet raccoon we used to have. For those of you that know us girls, you know we are very sarcastic. So, no I do not have nor have ever had rabies. We did have 6 baby raccoons as pets for a day, but i was never bit by one. I have however been bit by many other animals. No I'm not kidding- and my sisters seem to find it hilarious. For example, one year as kids our parents surprised us with a dog. I ran over to hug it cause I was so excited and it bit my neck. I didn't say a thing though cause I knew if my dad had seen it he would have taken the dog back. Lauren, however, takes the cake on animal stories. We had a rabbit that used to belong to a magician. It could pick a card from the deck, and even play dead. One day, Lauren kissed it on the nose (like she did all the time) and the rabbit had decided it had had enough. It chomped onto her lip and would not let go. She stood up and began to swing her head back and forth and that little rabbit clung on. Finally Lauren swung hard enough and it let go. That may have been one of its finest tricks. (next time you see Lauren, look for that scar on her lip. No really, do it. And don't tell her what you're doing. Just lean over the table and stare)
You're welcome for that walk down memory lane. Speaking of walking, the other day us girls walked 26 miles around a lake in Wisconsin. We just had a day off and thought "wouldn't it be fun". Yeah, next time we may want to build up to that, or maybe train. I don't know, just a thought...
We've been playing a lot of great festivals, meeting awesome people, and trying a lot of new coffee places. Thanks to everyone who has come out to the festivals and been so supportive. We've been through a lot of transition this summer and it has not been easy but I know God is in it. Transition is never comfortable, but it is very necessary. Though this season I'm realizing that so often we have our agendas and want God to hurry up and answer when we want Him to, but the reality is He is more concerned about relationship. We want things now and sometimes they're drawn out cause the longer we don't have our answer, the more we press in, the deeper we go in our relationship with Him. Just a glimpse into what I've been learning this summer...
Well I'm gonna go climb into my bunk now cause I'm getting sleepy...see all you Ohioans tomorrow.
