We got home on Wednesday night but still considered ourselves "on vacation" as Wendell didn't go back to work until yesterday. Even though we have a washer & dryer in the cottage there is always a mountain of laundry when we get back. That was done and ironed on Thursday and life started to feel back to normal.

Rebekah stayed at a friend's house on Friday and Saturday as she had some church activities. So we had a weekend alone which was nice for a change. Wendell & I attend a family ward (congregation) but as Rebekah is in university and aged 21, she attends a ward made up of singles from aged 21-30. It is a great opportunity for them to get to know people their own age with the same standards and values. She loves it. Each September there is a new influx of students who arrive.
Rebekah is in her third year of university but she is taking some second year classes as she took last year off and cut her course load in her second year. She is majoring in linguistics and is very excited about her classes and Professors this year. Here she is on the first day of classes
So life is back to normal and we are now looking forward to our trip to Salt Lake City at the beginning of October. Our church has a general conference then and although we can watch it via satellite and internet here at home, sometimes it is nice to go in person. Plus we have lots of friends in Utah which we like to visit. So another trip coming up soon. Then at the end of October, Wendell and I are back off to Maine alone for a week to celebrate our 31st anniversary. In between those two trips, Wendell has some business trips planned, so it will be a busy time.
