Chicago Adventure Coming To A Close

The month of July is almost over and Chicago is coming to a close for us. 
We have been pretty this past week with visits from friends and sight seeing all over the city.
Last week we visited Icosium Kafe for crepes and craziness! 
The turkish coffee was well worth the nose umbrella display.

A lot of people are threatening to head south to visit us and we couldn't be happier.
There are really some amazing people in our lives.  We are truly blessed.

All the real work will begin for us next week as we gather all of our stuff and figure out how to get it all down south.

Hot Dog! New Title

Well, due to overwhelming demand the blog title has been changed.  I guess using your actual name is not always the best way to go.  Anyway, we are now known as Central American Yoopers.

Time is moving along at a steady clip here in Chi-town.  The men leave for CR in 23 days!  Man where is the time going?  We experienced Hot Dougs today.  This place is the ultimate hot dog joint and has been recognized by both The Food Network and Fodors as the coolest hot dog place in the midwest if not the entire planet.  Doug's is "The Sausage Superstore and
Encased Meat Emporium ".  We had fun and broke our table.  You can't beat that for a great lunch.  
More soon,

Sick in Chicago

Okay, so since the last posting a few milestones have been met.  I am self-unemployed now as of 6/30 and totally homeless and car-less.  (That's car-less not careless)  We are here in Chicago still and have been dealing with some illness.  I (joe) have been sick for the past two and a half weeks with some sort of Martian virus.  A few days in the hospital in Macomb and a visit to the emergency room in Chicago has left me sick of being sick.  Things seem to be getting better though.  It has been a bit difficult being here at JPUSA only because we are so used to doing tasks and jobs.  So since we've been here we've been dealing with a little bit of cabin fever.  But the Lord is trying to show us something while we are here and we are hoping to hear His voice.  We spent a long week at Cornerstone Festival.  It would have been better if I wasn't sick but it brought back some old memories nevertheless.  I have never been to the festival with a wife and kids.  The kids were blown away by all of the music and crazy people.  D and I were intrigued by their reactions.  All in all it has been a log couple of weeks but we're hanging in out here.  God is good and faithful and has not brought us on this journey to fail.  Thank you Lord for friends/family but most off all for your peace through your Spirit.  Amen.
