March Inn

Why"March Inn?" March Inn was the name of that magic place where I spent my summers growing up. I have alluded to this place before, and I probably will again. March Inn is no longer standing. The waters of Katrina rendered it unlivable so my children will never know that "March Inn." That makes me sad. In fact it brings me to tears whenever I think about it. I want my children to have their own "March Inn," and I want to capture our lives as they are growing and changing. I invite you to "march inn" to our lives. My hope is that you will catch glimpses of the real world. You will see our creations. You will see our chaos. You will see our affection. You will also see our frustrations, fears, and disappointments. Enjoy your march!

A Camping We will Go

Mary Frances and I went to Camp McDowell for a Mother/Daughter Weekend Camp. We did this with one of my dear friends from high school and beyond. Margaret Day and I are a grade apart, and our friendship developed through track, SGA, and Young Life. We have both always been "campers". We both grew up going to summer camp and think that it was instrumental in our development. We also both have girls who are about 2 1/2 months apart though will be a grade apart in school because of the way their birthdays fall. We do not live in the same city but try to keep in touch as well as possible with young busy families. Margaret Day ran accross the information for this weekend last year, but we could not participate for a variety of reasons mainly our girls were too young. The brouchure says the activiities are intended for children 5 and older but I would say our 4 1/2 year olds did quite well.

The girls were fast friends. Margaret Day and I reflected afterward that they were well matched ~ one did not dominate the other.

We canoed, hiked, napped, played on the playground and ate snacks. We walked across the swinging bridge and the girls watched their mommies do the trust swing which is a part of the high ropes course.
In general, it was a low key relaxing weekend with the girls.

Camp was fun for all!
