Getting Along

We have officially been in Fort Lauderdale a week now.  And we have met with several folks already and enjoyed fellowship with some long time friends.  I have especially enjoyed making new friends and being back at Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale, our home church when we lived here.

RV living seems much easier this time around.  It really has become a second home away from home, even in 200 sq feet of living space.  We have everything we need.  Not everything we want.  But I think that's what makes it OK.  The whole family has learned to get along w/o what most Americans think they need.

In other news, Andrew went coconut hunting.  He was dead set on finding a real coconut on a real coconut tree.  Bill finally found one in Calvary Chapel's landscape.  I probably shouldn't be confessing this, but yep, there it was, glistening in the Florida sun, hanging low enough to grab(ish).  Well, Bill had to hoist Andrew up a little, but the brave boy clasped his prized treasure in his hands and twisted it loose.  Victory at last!

And then we took it back to the RV and Andrew and Josh cut it up.

They drank the juice...

...and mom had to throw the discarded shell away.  Go figure.

And finally, the last bit of news is Bill got a fever starting Tuesday afternoon and the next thing we know he has a rash all over his upper body.  He's had chills and fever off and on since.  If it does not improve by the morning we will be heading to a doctor to see what the verdict is.

We have self diagnosed it as possible sun poisoning (he had gotten a deep sunburn from our Sebastian Inlet stay) or it may even be mono.  Either case, there's not much that can be done except get through it.  So meanwhile I have been trying to coordinate ministry events.  Kind of a different role for me, but I am learning a lot.

That's about it for now.  Please pray for Bill and that it is not infectious and the rest of us will stay healthy.  Thanks!
