I am thankful we made it to the lake this past weekend. After finding out that Lucy has to stay dry for ten days post surgery we would have regretted greatly any decision to be away from the water. Now, I'll be perfectly honest and say that we stayed in our long sleeves a lot of the time but we still had a blast. We took a few friends and the children (all but Lucy who is still sensitive to temperature) swam while shivering with purple lips. I got in once to ski and once to pull kids skiing behind the jet ski but that was all. Since my sweet grandfather built my grandmother a potty on the pontoon, we no longer have to get in the water when, well you know.
We ended up building a bonfire in the rain and roasting S'mores before we left on Sunday. Who would have ever thought that the temperature in August would be maxed out at 70? It's nuts! I'm sure not complaining as its been the most beautiful few weeks I can ever remember this time of the year.
Thank you God for your wonderful blessings.
