Summer so far has been a bumpy ride, sometimes downright scratchy, but sweetened by camaraderie and tranquil vistas along the way.
Recently we enjoyed a gathering of my maternal extended family. Part of the festivities took place at the Farm--my mom's childhood home.
N participated in her first water balloon toss and played like mad with her newly acquainted second cousins.
We spent a day with the great-grandparents in their new retirement cottage. As N commented, "It's nice here."
Walking to Bible school at the little church up the road was a highlight for N.
