What a weekend!


Nate finally made it home from a week at "Fantasy Island" Scout camp, which is located on Naval property. He had a great time and earned his Nuclear Science and Space Exploration merit badges. We were able to visit twice and enjoyed our time with him and his troop. Nate was also able to meet scouts from around the island of Guam and from a troop that came to Guam from Japan. Nate says he is looking forward to the next camp where he won't be the lowest ranking scout in the troop again!

Jean is recouping from her ant bites, but had a serious injury on Friday. She was stung by a local bee deemed a "boonie bee" which caused great pain and swelling. So much swelling in fact that Scott and a doctor had to cut all 4 of her wedding rings off before her finger was permanently damaged. Jean is upset about her rings and Scott assured her she could've upgraded at anytime without all of the extra stress!

All is well here on Guam and we are all greatly anticipating going to China in just a few weeks, about a month actually. Please enjoy the photos of Guam and our family. Thanks for all of your prayers and thoughts. We miss you all!

That is terrible about the bee sting, a new wedding ring will be nice though! Traveling in 1 month, I cannot believe how fast it is going by. We will be in China before you know it. Christe
