“the traveling russells” turns 2

Two years ago today, we launched our blog. That is to say, Julie launched her blog, but over time I started throwing in my cynical 2 cents often enough to call it “ours”. Life was really different for us in April 2009: we had only just recently accepted a position with One by One, but didn’t really know much about what we would be doing—but we originally weren’t going to be working with kids!

Since then, we’ve moved twice, painted twice, we went to Costa Rica, flew back to the States 4 times, obtained 3 nephews and a niece, learned a lot of Spanish, learned a lot about ministry, learned a lot about wealth and poverty, battled serious mold, culture shock, heat, rain, health problems, power outs, and vermin. I don’t have any gray hair yet, but think I’m starting to develop wrinkles around the eyes.

Anyways, thanks for reading this blog. I’m always pleasantly surprised that a number of people take the time to read the things we put on here.

Here’s an interesting excerpt from our first post:

We currently have this blog named "the traveling russells" because that's what we do. We travel. Almost every weekend...However, as soon as we think of a better name (suggestions anyone?), "the traveling russells" is history.

So much for ever coming up with a new name!

  1. "The Traveling Russells" is a really good name. I suggest keeping it. Lots of good stuff has been printed under that title!
