Weekend at the lake

Well, the grandchildren have left ( all but two, the girls and their parents are living with us temporarily while their dad looks for a youth pastor position ) So our house seems very quiet, we really did enjoy the time with them.
But we were able to go to the lake to watch our two grandsons while their parents were at our son-in-laws 10 yr high school reunion. We stayed at a friend of theirs lake cabin. We had lived on the lake for 17 and a half years before we sold three years ago. We realized how much we miss just looking out at the lake. It is soooo peaceful!! We didn't hear any loons, thats another thing that I miss not being on the lake. It was too cold and rainy to get out and enjoy the lake but at least we could enjoy the view.
We were also able to visit our old church that was fun to see some friends we hadn't seen in a while, its always a blessing to hear Pastor Jims messages.
It's hard to believe our son-in-law has been out of high school that long already!! They had a good time, our daughter knows quite a few of his classmates so she had a good time as well. Fun to see where people are and what they are doing after they graduate.

Oh, come one, lakes are SOOOOO overrated. How about a nice, scummy North Dakota slough? Yeah, now that's great!
