Hi Potter’s Clay supporters, and prayer warriors!
This past weekend we went to Ensenada for a planning weekend. We have been doing this for a few months, about every third weekend, but from here on out, until our Gran Semana, we will go every other weekend… YAY! Our team has grown so close, which has been one of the biggest blessing of this year for me. This weekend was littered with mishaps, but with the company of the splendid people I get to do my job with, it was so packed with joy.
We went driving all over Ensenada, and got to see the construction-sites-to-be, while several of us went to Rancho Agua Viva, to get the pharmacy in order. We made significant progress in our respective endeavors, and had a really blessed time in the midst of productivity.
However, I think all of us will report that our favorite memory from this weekend will always be the morning that we got stuck in the mud… three times. The minivan, Herbie, got stuck twice, and even the seemingly invincible suburban got stuck in a pit of mud!
Needless to say, there was much laughter, and even more mud caked on the boys shoes after trudging through mid-calf deep mud, pushing a two ton vehicle. We bonded at a whole new level, and will remember this fantastic weekend for years to come.
Here are some photos, so you can visualize this weekend:
