Happy 16th Birthday, Joshua!
Michael and I are about to head out to Quarry Lake, and I’ve decided to leave my computer behind for a day; so look for a double update tomorrow – or in your case reading this in my future; flip the digital page to find out all about the birthday party and camping adventure!
It was a bit on the cloudy side of things this morning, but Tai Chi by the river and breakfast in the sunroom was still really great – especially getting to do both with Michael. We did some more yard work at his house after that; and then rounded up our camping gear and packed our overnight bags. The party doesn’t start until this afternoon, but Joshua’s parents needed help with the work to set up for the camping; and Michael and I are two of the volunteers while all of our farm kid friends are busy working on those farms. Joshua gets a partial break from that to get his license; but that’s as much for his family as for him; since he’ll be able to do more on and around the farm once he can drive on his own.
Mom, Ethan, and Ehlana are at the lab as I write this, but Miranda is going to give us a ride out to the campground; and Mom or Dad will handle the trips we’ll need to take later to get back here for our marching band and teen praise team practices – and then back out to Quarry Lake for the rest of the party. That’s all going to be a blast, and I’m ready to get right to the fun now; so, until next time...
...May the Magi Force be with you!
