Oh, that was so good. We were incredibly blessed by good company, wonderful (mosquito and black fly -free) weather, and beautiful sunsets every evening. There was fishing morning noon and night, canoe paddles on the silent lake (the boys' favorite being the one in the rain), bald eagles overhead, late nights with little ones falling asleep around the campfire, and plenty of s'mores, wine, and camp food to go around. Ignoring the bad-drinking water induced sickness that put a big kink in our end-of-the-week plans (ugh. not good), it really was a blissful week.
We all came home with pitch covered hands and feet, tired but happy bodies, and new ideas. Energy. Inspiration. Connection. Oh, and laundry. Lots and lots of laundry. And now I find my emotions wavering between Ezra's longing cry of, "I miss the hammock at camp!" to Adelaide's dancing on her tiptoes saying gleefully, "Home!" over and over. Perhaps a bit of both.
I hope your week was nice, too. It's wonderful to be back in this space, and I'm happy to be home to see the one in ten auction up and live (yay, eireann!). My little smock set is here, along with many more beautiful things for a very important cause. It all ends in four days, so don't forget to take a peek.
