It was the first day at his new school . The closer he came the more his anxiety level began to SWELL!

I hope my son will see the humor in this post as he gets ready for the intermediate school!

Back from Blue Mountain

We're back from Blue Mountain Lake and our best family vacation yet! A week of no internet, email or cell phones  - just the woods, the lake, family and wonderful new friends.
It was a week of first  - our son paddled his own kayak, jumped off rock island and made it to the top of Blue Mountain's fire tower.
And I couldn't help but be inspired --- mist rising off the lake, a family of loons, chattering red squirrels, an adorable porcupine and a tricky mink that joined us as we jumped off the dock for afternoon swims!
