After Michigan adventure we headed to the Double JJ resort in Rothbury compliments of a good friend who has a place there. While the place is still not fully operating because of new ownership, our kids enjoyed it immensely. There was a swimming pool and a few barn animals to feed and that's all that the kids need to have a good time. The older ones were bummed they didn't get to be led in a circle on the pony....Lisa....she screamed her whole way around. Let's just say Lisa needs a lot more "getting used to the idea" time than others.
Friday we went to Silver Lake Sand dunes and enjoyed the scenery via the jeep ride tour. Saturday on our way home we stopped at Pere Marquette beach on Lake Michigan. It was awesome....the big water and rolling waves instilled calmness and peace in me. I was trying to convince the rest that we should stay for another day or two. I was overrulled..bummer...I could use some more peace. (By the looks of the picture...Lisa was enjoying the peace too! Is that a curl forming in her hair?)
The 3 older kids are off at camp now for the week. A first time experience for Maranda. I find myself constantly doing mental checks wondering how they are doing and what they are up to. I'm ready to go and "volunteer" at the camp and join in the fun for a day. I've been told, I've got to let the kids have their fun and let them grow up....hmmmm....why?!
Lisa is doing well. Today is the first day of a series of 3 day tests and scans. I have to admit I'm on pins and needles. Every ounce of me believes that things are going to come back fine. But after having the rug pulled out from under me a little over a year ago, I'm a little less trustworthy of my intuition.
So....please throw a few extra prayers out.....we are so enjoying our freedom and not having treatments...I don't want it to ever end.
