Charles is in New Jersey this week at "Preacher Camp". He seems to be getting some much needed recharging there. I am very grateful that he has the chance to learn new things and recharge his batteries, but I am already ready for my husband to be back home!
Kaitlin is at dance camp again this week. She has thrown herself into dance this summer and she is loving it. I have enjoyed the chance to watch her dance here at home in the afternoons. I miss the days of daily "shows" that Kaitlin put on. Now it is a rare treat to see her "perform" for me!
Jonathan and I have had a lot of reading time this week. We read the Magician's Tower and now we are reading the 2nd Harry Potter. I love snuggling up with a book together. I know (from Kaitlin) that these time are limited, and I treasure them. Jonathan has been working on Hey Joe (Hendrix) and I Will Enter His Gates (Worship song). I love to hear him play.
I just got back from taking the boys for a walk. Jack wanted to throw a few coins in the wishing well. On the way back home, Jack put his arm around Jonathan and said, "you are the best brother in the world." I love those boys.
This has been the first day this week without rain, so Jonathan is hoping for a quick beach trip this evening. We'll see if I can manage it.
Here is an updated picture. It has been a while since I have had my face in the blog world.
