Dear Friends and Family;
We have had a wonderful couple of weeks. Our daughter Kari and her two daughters Grace and Emily visited us. We loved having them. They met some great people and visited many beautiful places in southwest Norway. Times goes so fast. We only have 4 months left. We are really getting comfortable here. I guess that means it's time to move on. We have had a rainy and chilly summer, but we have really enjoyed it. We have enjoyed our YSA this summer. Our institute starts again Friday. Everyone is headed back to school. We have been doing member visits the last week. We have had some special visits with sweet and faithful members. We are excited for the new school year for all of our grand children. We hope they all have a fun and successful year. Many are involved in sports. Good luck and stay safe. Thanks for your love and prayers.
With love, Elder and Sister Gormley

Enjoying the Hardangerfjord bing cherries. They use the honor system. You stop and take the fruit and put your money in the box. Not sure that would work at home.

Elder Jørgen Lundegård came home from his mission in Greece. His mom made an amazing chocolate cake for his reception. He is off to school in Drammen. Wish we could keep him in our YSA
