Good Morning Company Girls!
Well, things are very busy in our house this morning....I only have a few minutes....we are packing to go up north to 'open up the trailer'.....which involves a lot of work...but it also signals the beginning of...I hope...a relaxing summer filled with good memories at our summer spot. Our summer spot is about 2-1/4 hours drive from our home......
FairHavens Bible Conference grounds have been there forever and we've been going every year since our eldest was 5 yrs old. It has many, many activities for all ages including a 9 hole golf course, a pool, baseball, soccer, lawn bowling and shuffleboard...to name a few. Best of all are the speakers they bring in each week during conference time (July and August) to refresh and energize your spiritual soul.
When the kids are small they look forward to it every year and start talking about it in March.....one year Ryan even started collecting sticks in the early spring for campfires! Whenever the kids had a hard time getting to sleep or were awake because of something stressful that wouldn't leave their minds...I'd tell them....just close your eyes and think about FairHavens...and off they'd go to sleep! I remember 3-4 years ago...one of my daughters had her wisdom teeth out and as I sat with her, in her dopey state afterwards, I had to smile to myself when she sleepily said....'tell me about FairHavens, mom'.....she was about 18 or 19 at the time. ;0)
So, off we go......it should be an interesting time.....one teen isn't in a good mood...always makes for a wonderful drive.....oh, well...I've had the cold shoulder before....and Megan, the youngest...well, she'll be over the moon...as usual!
Have a wonderful long weekend people!
