Good morning Ladies and welcome to September !! August just went by so fast I felt . Last Saturday with the help of all 6 of us we did some house cleaning. It is amazing how many hands make light work At 2pm after a little packing we left to stay at a hotel 2 hours 30 minutes away. As I said last week we were travelling for our nephews baptism.
As we were driving on interstate 94 we went through many downpours and nearly had to pull over as visibility was very low and the wipers were on highest speed! But the showers dissapated we were able to arrive at the hotel in sunshine . We arrived at 5.30 pm and the kids of course went to the pool right away! It was a nice pool and it was not too busy. They swam for over an hour and then went across the parking lot to AJ’s for dinner. It was a nice place and the food was good. After dinner the boys went back to the pool before bed for an hour. The hotel was pet friendly and it was the first time we brought our dog Tucker to a hotel ! He did really well but felt he had to protect us by barking a little when seeing strangers! It was cute really.
We were up early on Sunday morning as the baptism was at 8:30 am and was also a 25 minute drive from the hotel! WE got breakfast , packed got dressed up and were ready to leave just before 8am. On our way we went to this scenic overlook at the nearby lake
The baptism took place during the church’s morning service and it was a beautiful event. He did very well and there were no tears as the water of Baptism was poured over his head! They used a family gown as his outfit. Afterwards we went back to their house and had lunch and conversation. We did not stay too long after as we wanted to get back a little early for the next day’s event : SCHOOL!
Our daughter started High school (yikes!!) and is settling in well. After school there has been a lot of volleyball games both home and travel. Our oldest son started middle school and is meeting new friends as well as the kids he was with at elementary school. Our two youngest started in a new elementary school and were made welcome by everyone ! We have a week done now and I am happy it has all gone so well.
This weekend being labor day , the kids will be off Monday. We are staying home with friends coming over today and on Monday. I am happy to have a pretty relaxing weekend ! The weather is cloudy today with sunshine promised tomorrow.
