We have spent the last two weekends at the lake. It has been a blast! The children and I have headed down on Thursday. The packing, gathering, loading and unloading is never fun, but it sure has been nice to wake up and have the day before us. I've enjoyed that time to have my little ones close ~ nowhere to be, no one to see. During those Fridays we have done lots of reading, swimming, crafting, and playing.
The first weekend we had friends with us. It was such a fun, easy weekend! I hope that each of you have friends like that. The children play well together. The adults enjoy conversation together. The meals and clean-up were a joint effort. So fun!
Have I ever told you about church at the lake? Probably not, because in the past we haven't made it with much consistency. We try to leave the house by 8:00 to go to an outside church ~ Church in the Pines. We arrive by boat. Sometimes we eat breakfast in route. We hear a message ~ some more Christ centered than others. The children watch the puppets. We go home and do more lake things. This is a picture of the children watching as we approached the church.
And now for Father's Day Weekend! No company but some impromptu gatherings.
