Alaska...Here We Come!

Well...the Swain's have officially entered the world of "blogging." This will be an online journal of sorts...a place for us to ponder a bit and muse on all that God is doing in and through us...a place for you to visit on occasion so you can stay in touch with us. We'll be able to post stories and pictures and you'll be able to make comments. I am planning to update the site at least once a month, but it could be more than that. I hope it will be a blessing to all of us.

Just so you know our timeline:
  • June 20: load the truck in LA
  • June 21: flights to Anchorage
  • June 22-25: Vacation with my parents (they have had a trip planned for months.)
  • July 2: Close on our house
  • July 3: Move into our house
  • July 5: Jason going on his first Alaskan adventure...2 hour drive...2 hour ATV ride...cabin in the mountains and fishing for king salmon.
  • Aug 1: My first day at ChangePoint (
Grace and Hope,

You blogger! I have never read one of these deals, but I guess I will now. Enjoy the 23.5 hrs. of sunshine in Alaska when you get there. Plenty of day light to get settled. I love you guys!

Samantha said...

What a wonderful and crazy family you guys are! I'm praying for you every step of the way. I read about your new church and it seems like a great fit for you.

Lots of love, Samantha
