long time, no post!

Sorry it's been so long since my last post!  Not too much exciting to report on so hopefully I can be brief. 

After Amy, the kids and my parents left the Gorilla on July 7, I stayed behind to handle some general maintenance / service contracts on the house.  I also enjoyed the quiet and got a lot of crafting done before I headed home on the 20th. David would come up on the weekends and we had friends visit too.  Wow, 20 days at the river!  This may need to become a tradition.

The first week of August I worked at my friend's scrapbook store so she and her family could enjoy a "before school vacation."  I had a lot of fun sitting around making cards each day.



Currently I'm back at the Gorilla with the Pattersons to have a "before school starts / end of summer" excursion. There's been fishing, rock throwing, card playing, checkers, napping, a meteor shower and even a very, very short float trip with our new inner tubes.  Gabe was a little apprehensive at first but by the time it was all over, he was hooked.  Both boys, "When can we do it again?" The plan is to try and squeeze one more float in before returning to the real world tomorrow.

Thanks for returning and thanks for reading!
