It has been difficult to find time to blog lately. I don’t have a computer at Mama’s house, and we have been so busy at work – there’s just been no time! But I’m about caught up at work, so I’m going to try to catch up here.
Last week, after Mama’s birthday, I began to get ready to join my family in Glen Rose, Texas for our homeschool group’s annual camp out. This year was to be rather special, as it marked our 20th year to go as a group. We were blessed to be there the first year, and every year since except 2007, our family was represented at the camp out. Now, our children are obviously past the homeschooling age, but we just plan to keep going to Glen Rose with our group as Grandparents of homeschoolers!
I’m sure I wrote about Glen Rose last October, and not much changes from year to year. This year we did have the added blessing of our dearest friends, The Watts, join us.
Terri and I were able to visit more that we have in YEARS!!! It was so much fun to have them with us. There are 8 children in the Watt family, 3 of whom are grown & out of school (well, out of high school – Jesse is in college). It was so good to have children running around our camp this year.
It won’t be long before Arulai will join the kiddos running around the camp playing flashlight tag or hide-n-seek. She tried to this year, but had to be hemmed in more or less. She didn’t like that part, but she did enjoy the river!
Conrad also joined our campsite this year – and he’s definitely a keeper! He kept the fire going for me (I’m always cold!) and he also fixed breakfast for us a few times.
There is so much more I want to write about last weekend, but it is time to shut down my work computer and go to the surgery center where Mama is having a procedure done (shots in her back). Gen is with her, but we try to group up during these times – waiting is much more fun with company!
I’ll try to get photos of our trip to the Creation Evidences Museum for my next post.
God bless your day!!
