Having fun

I arrived back in Haiti on April 23rd.  I have not had a day off since then.  That is a little over 3 months.  Me and the family was ready for a day away from everything.

This was where I was at….I think number 4 most described me.

burn out

1. To stop burning from lack of fuel.
2. To wear out or make or become inoperative as a result of heat or friction: The short circuit burned out the fuse.
3. To cause (a property owner or a resident) to have to evacuate the premises because of fire: The shopkeeper was burned out by arsonists.
4. To make or become exhausted, especially as a result of long-term stress: “Hours are long, stress is high, and many recruits drop out or burn out” Robert J. Samuelson.

We decided to spend the day at the beach.

Here we are on the way there.

jumping for joy…

yeah we finally made it here…….

This is how I feel now.

re·vive  (r-vv)

v. re·vived, re·viv·ing, re·vives

1. To bring back to life or consciousness; resuscitate.
2. To impart new health, vigor, or spirit to.
3. To restore to use, currency, activity, or notice.
4. To restore the validity or effectiveness of.
5. To renew in the mind; recall.
6. To present (an old play, for example) again.
Thanks again for all your prayers!

    You NEED to put a beach day on the calendar every three weeks — what good are you if you’re burned out???? PLAN your refresher times in so they don’t get missed. Listen to me – or else.

  10. I’m so glad you took a day off! Everyone–even missionaries–need them!! Your pictures are fantastic. It looks like everyone had a good time and I hope you’ll do it again soon!
