"For me, times of Silence means a time to slow down and reflect on whatever may be on my mind at the time. I do try to have times of Silence and I find it very calming and it seems to put things in a whole new perspective.
"Very interesting conversation. My take on "unchurched" people finding religion now is society. Being in a recession and still at war why wouldn't anyone want to "feel good" and be healed from the stresses of our lives. How…"
Joel really enjoyed himself at the camporee this past weekend. He was so proud that they were hosting it and that he was a working part of each day. It sounded like it turned out well. Joel did say that he saw you when you were headed up. I…"
Hi Shelley! I never did figure this web stuff out. I know back in August you invited me on line, but had never figured out what that meant! So, that said, I didn't ignore your invitation, I just didn't know how to acknowledge it. Seth recently left me a comment and when I replied I got to include your original invitation. I welcome it all, I just havn't figured how this web site works just yet!
Thanks for asking Shelley -- I imagine you've heard by now that we moved on Wednesday and are still getting finished with cleaning out the old house. A carpet cleaner is there today to freshen things up for the new folks. I am looking forward to having some time to sort ALL THOSE BOXES and figure out where the stuff will go in the new house.
Hope to see you sometime before I leave here.
Cara went up to the Adir. with Seth and Jessica Burgess and others and had a good time. She has declined going back up in Nov. -- she is not fond of the cold. Gerry, I think, would go up any time of the year!
Stuie is going to do Modified swimming, though I don't think there will many others :( . Currently he is playing football and enjoying it very much. How will the varsity be this year and how did Joel's eagle project go? Sorry we didn't make it.
Hope you are having a nice summer and enjoying your family.
We are grandparents now (Ella-June 24th) and they are visiting this weekend. We've been to MD twice to see them, but this is Ella's first road trip to NY.
Thanks for being in touch.
Being that I am vertically challenged, we use the bed of the pick up to transport our kayaks. (Not the most gas efficient way to transport though). I love kayaking, most recently we have been on Otter Lake paddling and watched 2 loons swimming and then on to Nick's Lake the next day for a fishing competition between Joel and myself. Needless to say Joel won. It is a wonderful thing communing with nature.
I, too want a family photo (of us on the summit of Mt. Marcy) for my profile. It seems so easy but the computer and I are not cooperating together as a team this week! We got another new gizmo this week. It's a Kayak Cradle to make life simple for little old ladies like me. Well, the roof of the van is as high as Brantling and it's a workout getting the boat up there. I'm too exhausted to go paddling with the kids by then!
I'll bet you're busy. We haven't camped yet either this summer. We went to get the camper ready for what was supposed to be our first trip in mid June, and found that the roof had leaked over the winter and there was quite a bit a damage. Mavin's just finished fixing the camper this week. We're still going to try to squeeze in a trip or two before school starts. We've spent many weekends at the cottage in Sodus Point, instead - just to get a change of scenery.
