The younger two and I got to enjoy a week at Patmos with Andrea between a few retreats. The weather was super nice part of the time and rainy and dreary the other part.
One thing Megan really wanted to do was to jump off the pier. She watched campers do it during camp and she wanted to try also. So after playing hard one day, we decided to jump. Megan had so much fun, they jumped three or four times. If we did not need to get cleaned up before dinner, we probably would have played even longer.
Spent a morning exploring Alivars with Kristi and Kari. Rarely do we have enough time to spend together, so it was a super special treat this last week. We looked for sea glass, Lucky Stones and just spent time catching up.
While in Colorado, I love often get up early to watch the sun rise and then go for an early walk before everyone is moving. One morning, this back lit grass caught my eye. I do not know what type of grass it is, but the little dots are tiny flowers!
It was so much fun being able to spend time with relatives in Colorado. One evening we had dinner with family. We wanted to get a group shot and I asked Uncle Lawrence and Uncle Bill to be my models while everyone got ready. This one is what I call my “smile picture”. A picture that makes me smile just because.
I am not sure where I first saw this idea, but thought it would be a lot of fun. The kids filled balloons with mostly cold water. Then we broke the balloons over each other’s heads. It was a super quick way to cool down.
