Going ons....

I have been absent from this blog for awhile. And to be honest I actually started to avoid it because I knew how far behind I was and didn't want to face it. But here are some things that have been going on around these parts:

1) We went to Carnivale in Venezia in February

2) I went to Padua in March on a school trip. It is home of one of the first University's in the world and had a medical school which performed the first autopsies. They actually had to hide the bodies under a false floor when the Catholic church visited because the church did not allow for bodies to be tampered with.

(Oh, and I fed the pigeons.)

3) We spent our last Sunday at the old church on the 25th of March and moved into our new building this Sunday (8th). (Everyone else had their last Sunday on Easter but we were not there.) Also, Dustin passed the sacrament for the first time the first Sunday we were in the building! It was so awesome!

4) Dustin turned 30 on April 1st (Holy cow! Time has sure gone by!)

5)Brett & Kellie came to visit on that same day. We went to Venice and Verona and had so much fun with them! I was sad to see them leave.

5) We spent Easter in Plitvice Lakes National Park in Croatia and made a pit-stop in Bihac, Bosnia.
The National Park contains 16 lakes that flow from one to another via waterfalls. It is so beautiful!

Welcome to Bosnia

It was weird to see a mosque instead of a Catholic church.

The outsides of almost all of the buildings in the city were full of bullet holes.

7) And last but not least...the list of available jobs for our next base came out this week and so we are now just waiting for orders. We are hoping by the end of the month we will know where we are headed next!
