Then we opened the cabin for the season, which is great but takes a little bit of work to clean everything , sweep, restock etc....after being closed up all winter. You can't drive up because of all the crazy amount of snow that gets up there and they don't pave all the way up because it is actually a former logging road....but that's ok, we utilize it in the spring and summer which is good enough.
During that weekend we received a voicemail.
July as they had already planned to get away, Johns ticket was refunded and we encouraged Mom to still come out and get a change of scenery. We are hoping for her to relocate here so time will tell.....
to get a hotel and stay the night and make a long weekend of it.( My girls are in red, the little decided to photo bomb her sister, which actually worked out because I didn't get one picture of the two of them together! go figure) Once again the girls did well but not their best. One of their teammates on their 4 x 100 relay didn't show up or call to tell anyone so they were one man down. The first man, which is an important place...but they pulled another athlete from their team and used her, which she
never had done a running relay, just walking but she was such a trooper and did her best and we are very proud of her stepping up and helping out the team. They placed 6th.....they usually place 1st/Gold. But it made them see how it really is important to do their part and show up. Lesson learned.
So now I can resume blogging....don't have much on the calendar until the end of the month and then a couple of weeks after that my Mom arrives. So glad to spend time with her....in the meantime I am working on my log cabin quilt from the quilt along....I am handquilting it right now and hope to be finished with in by next week! Looking so forward to the parade!
