Blueberry Week in Ely!

If you have the weekend free and want to hang out with about 40,000 people Ely is the place to be! It's their "famous" Blueberry arts festival this week. They have tons of blueberry stuff...picking...baking...pancakes, etc...There is a big craft/vendor/carnival going on Fri-Sun. We are excited to be apart of it. No hotel rooms are available...so call us ahead of time, and you can bunk with us :)
This past weekend was great!
Mark's parents and we went canoeing in the Boundry Waters and fishing...than we had supper at the Rauch's house and crashed!
It was so nice having them here...the kids miss them.
Sunday we had Mn Teen Challenge, it's great to see God working in the lifes of addicts...you just never know...one man said..."the secrecy of his sin and the horribleness of his sin, he felt as though he could be open and honest for the first time in his life and not pretend and live for God, not himself"...I pray they continue in their bible studies!
Tonight is local music live at different shops, so we are going to walk around.
Have a great week!

About Me

I am a wife and mother of three beautful children. I like to keep busy up here in Ely, since there isn't much to do. Sydney is in preschool, and I take the kids to ECFE every week. I am starting a ladies bible study 2 times a month and am also leading another bible study, twice a month. We love hiking, boating, fishing and going on dates together...we love our new life up here in Ely!
