Our first few days in Colorado

After our visit to Tiny Town (pictures to be posted later) we visited the Mount Lindo Cemetery, which is the location of the Cross on the Mountain. Heidi and Jackson were enjoying the view of Denver from Davy Crockett's tombstone.
Jackson gets wedged in the back with all the luggage. Poor kid. Sometimes we'd move stuff around and Heidi would ride back there with him. We brought a lot of stuff. Most of it is for Jackson though.
Our first few days were spent in meetings, working over logistics at The Navigator's HQ. We got to stay on their property which includes this incredible castle. We did not get to stay in the castle but did eat breakfast there. It was great to see some of our old friends there and meet a few new ones. After our time there, Heidi and I introduced Jackson to my folks and my brother up in Denver. Then we spent the weekend visiting with some friends and a supporting church before heading down to Palmer Lake.
Glen Eyrie is like Rivendell from the Lord of the Rings books. Incredibly beautiful.

Right now we are at Mission Training International, learning about culture and how we learn language. So far so good. Two days down of 5 weeks!!
