Our two Fresh Air Fund visitors from New York City left for home early this morning and we are back to just the two of us. Quiet reigns as we get ready for our next batch of visitors (our Austin son and his family). So laundry, bed changing, pool and yard upkeep, etc. are all on the agenda for the next few days. As we do our chores we'll be thinking of all the fun we had this week!

At nighttime we read fairy tales and had bedtime prayers and lullabies.
For the first time ever the girls cooked over a bonfire and jumped on a trampoline. And every day but one we swam and swam and swam with an occasional popsicle break. In fact one of the girls learned to swim while she was here and has a beautiful stroke! Our other visitor already knew how and she helped instruct and was a great cheerleader!
Two local nieces loaned us their ten and eleven-year-old daughters to join in the fun and they are already asking us to invite Bari and Monni again next year. In fact, God willin' and the crick don't rise we are already thinking of what we can do when summer rolls around again. I think a short camping trip will be on the agenda.
Now doesn't all this sound like fun? Why not consider becoming part of the Fresh Air Family. We'd love to tell you all about it if you have any questions not answered by visiting their web site.
